Thu January 26, 2017
The number of incoming orders at the ZAHORANSKY GROUP has continuously achieved record levels over the past three years. In 2016 another record was attained with an incoming order value of approx. 92 m Euro compared to 82 m and 85 m in the previous years.
ZAHORANSKY Automation & Molds GmbH, as well as the classic machine business for “Broom & Brush”, dental hygiene and packaging, recorded a significant rise in incoming orders. This is a result of continuous expansion across six production sites in total, and the systematic development of global sales and service locations worldwide.
With 760 employees – of which 60 are apprentices – ZAHORANSKY is located at ten sites; in Germany, Spain, Japan, China, India, Brazil and the US. The company is split into business divisions for Mold Making and Automation as well as Mechanical Engineering and Packaging Machines.
Beside injection molds for economical start up solutions and complex multi-component molds, the range of products includes a large selection of brush machines. They range from machines for making tooth-brushes, small interdental brushes, hair and body care brushes and various household brushes, all the way through to cylindrical brushes and other technical brushes for the industrial sector.
In addition, the integration of packaging technology is offered. This includes in-house production of blister packaging machines, handling systems and robotics. The manufacturing of fully-automated, cross-system production and assembly facilities is part of the core business. Focal points of automation include household and industrial brushes, as well as oral care, cosmetics and medical devices.
The outlook for 2017 is also very positive. A further increase in order income is expected compared to 2016. Contributing factors include the completed expansion of the production area in the Spanish Logroño plant (La Rioja) , as well as significant increase in production capacity at the Indian plant in Tamil Nadu, southern India.
The global marketing of product innovations through the newly-introduced strategy of direct sales in foreign markets and the development of new business areas in automation and medical technology will additionally contribute to the scheduled growth.
