WF Maschinenbau take a positive stock of 2018
Sendenhorst, 03 January 2019. WF Maschinenbau und Blechformtechnik GmbH take the opportunity of the turn of the year to wish their clients, neighbours, partners and employees a good new year. Furthermore the company would like to take advantage of this moment to proceed a review of the year 2018 and to cast a glance at the new year.
Dr. Bodo Fink, Managing Director of WF, draws a positive balance of the last year: 2018 was an extremely successful year for our company history. The positive development of the year 2017 has been continued without interruption. Already in the first quarter we could secure the biggest individual order ever received in the company history. The order covered plants for the production of weight-optimized rims. Apart from an international expansion in sales along with the opening of locations in the USA and in Shanghai, in 2018 the company’s focus was on further investments in the company’s location Sendenhorst. In order to cope with the ongoing strong order situation, new employees were hired, the production capacities extended, and a new hall was built. Furthermore, the R&D department was completely renewed and the trial machine park increased to a total of four machines.
This is why the year 2019 will be entirely dedicated to research and development. “In cooperation with our clients we want to increasingly promote innovations,” says Fink. Further investments will be undertaken with regard to the training structure of WF. Our trainees are the basis for a successful future. This is why WF will offer the young colleagues the best possible start into their jobs. From 2019, our trainees will be supported by a team of mentors. “We are pleased to start into a promising new year with a highly motivated team and that we have already numerous orders on hand for the year to come,” summarises Dr. Bodo Fink.
