Wolfratshausen – WEBER Schraubautomaten GmbH in Wolfratshausen (Bavaria) has given an entirely positive assessment of the business year 2020/2021. As of March 31, the medium-sized family-run company was able to present convincing results for order intake, turnover, and revenue. This shows that the market leader, for machines and systems for automating screwdriving and fastening processes, is defying the worldwide crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic and can take an optimistic outlook for the future.
The rapid spread of the coronavirus from February 2020 also presented large parts of the economy with massive challenges: There were fears of international supply chains being interrupted, employees being absent for extended periods due to infection or sales markets collapsing from a lack of demand.
“Today, around one year after the first coronavirus case became known in Germany, WEBER can announce excellent results. Thanks to our own stable economic performance, forward-looking and careful actions regarding our staff and the very robust condition of the automation industry, we have succeeded in confidently guiding our company through this crisis and in securing the best opportunities for the coming months,” explains Karl Bujnowski, Managing Director at WEBER. The company made it through these extremely difficult economic months without any short-time work. Order intake, turnover and revenue at WEBER were maintained at the high level of the previous year – new system solutions and projects were initiated and implemented. “Among other things, our company had established sufficient storage capacities to ensure that production could continue if the supply chains were interrupted. Fortunately, though, these supply chains proved to be stable and reliable,” explains Bujnowski.
