We play an active role in creating new jobs and recycle a substantial part of our profits into development and facility investments. We continuously explore avenues of further growth and higher efficiency. We facilitate innovation and prioritize providing more added value by product development. We believe in exploring opportunities immediately, a philosophy that helps us keep and increase our market share. Our continuously upgraded, state-of-the-art production lines represent the latest in technologies.

Our sales force is tasked with promoting and establishing our products in the Hungarian and the Eastern European markets.

This results in shorter delivery periods, lower costs and a higher competitive edge.
In order to optimize all our manufacturing processes and increase efficiency we have introduced the Lean philosophy in all corporate operations. We respect human input and streamline all our processes. The sustainability of our measures aimed at boosting efficiency is guaranteed by Shop Floor Management.

Development focuses on creating easy-to-use, cost-efficient and production-optimized devices.

Products manufactured at our facilities in Hungary, Romania and the Far East are dispatched from our 5,000 square meter, fully-automated high-bay warehouse in Kecskemét. This facility has the capacity to store 13,000 pallets and allows for receiving and dispatching 87 pallets per hour.
