Accordingly, the Weinig Group registered a strong increase in incoming orders in 2015 and expects double-digit revenue growth. "We are very satisfied with our current performance. This is all the more true in view of the prevailing global economic uncertainties in many markets," said Mr Pöschl.

The board also laid foundations for the further evolution of the company in adopting the new sales and marketing strategy ‘Think Weinig’.

The strategy, which will lead a new market initiative, highlights the group’s philosophy of offering complete solutions rather than focusing on individual components.

The concept includes measures that will enable Weinig to make even better use of its comprehensive expertise.
