“For us, the Fakuma trade fair is a good opportunity for meeting our customers and engaging in dialogue with international expert visitors, as well as for working together with the plastics industry in an active and future-oriented manner. Due to corona, the last few years were by no means easy for trade fair planning, but there was no doubt about our decision to return to Friedrichshafen this year after participating at several smaller trade fairs.
We assume that this year’s meetings at Fakuma will once again be dominated by the essential challenges faced by the plastics industry: material shortages, lack of personnel and rising prices for raw materials and energy – accompanied by increasing demands on quality management, supply chain security and the growing need for sustainability.
Within this environment of uncertainty, we’re seeking constructive dialogue and, as an owner-managed group of companies, we’re ready and willing to take on the challenges presented by the market. With our TimeLine ERP system which is focused specifically on the industry sector, we offer an integrated solution to companies from the plastics processing industry, as well as from the tooling, mould making and machine manufacturing sectors. And thus Fakuma offers an excellent setting for matching challenges and solutions in a close-fitting fashion.
As an ERP supplier, and thanks to close relationships with our customers, we’re very familiar with the problems and challenges of the plastics industry. Our goal is thus not only to inform, but rather to provide security for future concerns as well, and, in this spirit, to consolidate our close cooperation with managing directors and professional associations.”
