Despite of the actual economical crisis, Octum succeeded to increase the turnover in fiscal year 2009 by almost 7% compared to the previous year. The increase was mainly a result of the strong business development in the pharmaceutical and medical industry as well as in food & beverage. New applications found their way to the factory floor via our machine building partners and directly to end-users in Europe.
At the same time Octum increased it`s work force in project management, application and administration to cope with the expected further growth of the business. With Oliver Seebach an experienced machine vision insider joined Octum as project manager and enabling the company to successfully handle bigger projects in the near future. Michael Löffelhardt gained already first experiences in machine vision and brings new impulses to our application department. Gabi Schlipf strengthens Octums administration force with here experience and engagement.
Octum thanks to all customers for the fruitfull cooperation in the past year and is looking forward to a positive business development in the new fiscal year.
