Kurtz Ersa Magazine


Positive trend continues

The first half of 2023 was characterized by high momentum in many sectors. Energy markets are under pressure and are changing significantly. The automotive industry is undergoing an unprecedented transformation with opportunities and risks for all market participants. Not to forget the still tense situation in Ukraine.

Dynamism brings change. And change creates new opportunities. Our latest customer magazine offers many answers and solutions to current questions. How do we shape sustainable growth while taking CO2 targets into account? How do we secure our sales markets despite changing conditions in globalization? How do we ensure the flow of goods in the face of tight procurement markets and stricter legislation for supply chains?

Our sustainability initiative “GoGreen250” is in full swing. Various initiatives have been launched or are already being implemented, such as our PV systems at the Wiebelbach and Bestenheid sites, which also feed the 70 charging stations for our workforce and visitors. We have also started to structure our sustainability activities globally and include our foreign sites. You can read all about this in this issue.

A lot has also happened on the product side – the VERSAFLOW 3/45, which has sold over 2,000 units, the iF Design Award for the i-CON TRACE, and the Kurtz Moulding Machine with e-Drive, an all-electric motor, are just three highlights of many that demonstrate Kurtz Ersa´s innovative strength. With our Flying Ray, we are preparing to take the step towards “metallic 3D printing for large parts” – a highlight that we were able to show at GIFA in Düsseldorf, among other events.

I am very pleased that we are attracting more attention from our customers in the field of automation together with SCHILLER AUTOMATION, which we also saw in the high level of interest at Automatica in Munich. The services from Sonnenbühl in Swabia act here as an integral part of our customer offering, and the intensive cooperation with Kurtz Ersa Automation increases performance within the Group.

As you can see, we are pulling out all the stops to offer our customers the best solutions and proactively exploit current trends for our benefit. Sophisticated service concepts are just as important as digital services or the reliable supply chain and punctual delivery dates. Our stable development in the first half of the year means that we are continuing to look for reinforcements at full speed. We currently have around 100 vacancies to fill. Here, too, there is a lot of dynamism, as in all Kurtz Ersa divisions.

Glück auf!

Yours Ralph Knecht
