In an economic rather difficult environment especially in the second half of 2012, Octum continued the successful company development also this year. 2012 led at Octum to a new best fiscal year in the company’s history with solid growth of the turnover and earnings at stable volume of incoming orders. Octum reached an increase in turnover of 13% mainly from the business with the pharmaceutical & healthcare industry. The automotive business was solid but especially in the second half of the year investments were stagnating.
This continued positive business development enabled Octum to further extend it`s investments in technology, infrastructure and workforce to enable new applications and further growth in the future. For the expected development of the staff Octum started 2012 the extension of the company building. This will lead to another 300sqm of available office floors for the next 20 employees in development and application. The extension of the building will be finished the second quarter of 2013.
Octum is looking forward to new and challenging applications in the new fiscal year and thanks to all it’s customers for the fruitful cooperation in the past year.
