Todtnau, April 15, 2020 – The good results confirm the standing of ZAHORANSKY as one of the internationally leading providers of injection molds, machines, automation technology, as well as packaging lines for the brush industry and medical technology: the 140 million euros in sales mark the biggest turnover in the corporate history. The current order situation also presents grounds for optimism: in spite of the challenges companies face as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, ZAHORANSKY logged the highest monthly incoming order volume so far in March 2020, with overall orders of 22 million euros for machines & lines, injection molds, medical technology, and automation solutions.

As significant reasons behind our sustainable success, we have identified the continuous further development of our technologies and services, the unceasing expansion of our production capacities, as well as the focus we place on individual customer requirements,” explains Ulrich Zahoransky, Managing Director at ZAHORANSKY, who goes on to add: “We are proud of the good results in 2019 and are delighted about the good order situation we now have.
