First press conference at emz Hanauer

On 8 February 2018, emz invited the press to attend a conference in Nabburg on the topic “Future strategy and digitization”. Thomas Hanauer, CEO, and Franz Forster, Head of the Household Appliance Division, took more than an hour’s time to give an insight into the company’s development and its strategic orientation for the future.

Moreover, the topic of digitization and the associated testing of agile product development with an even stronger focus on customer benefit were also at the forefront. “From the glass loop to the idea loop” was Thomas Hanauer’s way of describing the “Innovation Lab“ at emz. The journalists present were impressed by the positive company development and its good positioning on the world markets. However, they were also made aware of current challenges: the incessantly increasing cost pressure on the part of the customers, the increasing material prices and the noticeable capacity bottlenecks in all areas. The presentation was followed by a comprehensive period of question time and subsequently by a guided tour of the company. The product creation area inaugurated in  2016 – referred to at emz as the“Customer Innovation Space“ -  with its cutting-edge workplaces generated a lot of interest, as did the ZEN garden and the high-tech solutions in the assembly hall. The event is to be the kickoff for a regular dialogue with the regional press.
emz is always in sync with the pulse of time and will be pleased to communicate this in cooperation with the local press.
