Although the building industry is encountering increasingly strong headwinds, business in 2008 has been in line with our expectations – especially in comparison to the very good previous year. Given the prevailing uncertainties on the financial markets, we can be very satisfied with the annual results. By an increased demand of our rotors last year, our existing customers show their confidence in us and an increasing number of new customers have started business with us. For this demonstration of customer loyalty we thank you most sincerely.
Times of risk are also times of business opportunities. Our financial robustness gives us the strength to be assertive in taking advantage of these market opportunities and to consistently improve our product and service offering. As recently announced, Enventus has prepared for the increase in the global demand for high enthalpy capacity rotors with our latest foil coating equipment. We strongly believe that this product will enable you to secure relevant market opportunities and advantages.
I wish you a good start for the New Year and confidence in the new challenges ahead of us. We look forward to continue being your partner in putting future projects into practice.
