Market situation becoming more difficult in China
Mr Bernards explains: “The market situation is becoming more difficult as overall growth rates in China decrease. However, last year, 75% of customers ordering with us were new customers that chose our machines for their quality and long life-time. This is a good basis from which we will continue to improve our products and services, both for local Chinese customers as well as customers in Asia and other regions.”
