Standard Parts Supplier Meusburger increased turnover by 16 percent during 2021
Austria — 2021 was complicated by both supply shortages and rising commodity prices, as well as limited customer visits due to the Covid situation. Despite these challenges, Meusburger was able to guarantee continuous service and delivery availability. Thus, the standard parts manufacturer from Austria was able to achieve a turnover of 302 million euros.
The internationally active company Meusburger, a manufacturer of high-quality products for mould, die, and jigs and fixtures construction, is optimistic about the future after a successful 2021. At centre stage is Meusburger’s large warehouse for both standard parts and primary materials, the variety of materials and the 100 percent in-house production of plates. In combination with the high degree of standardisation, it enables high availability and therefore short lead times for their now 24,000 customers in 81 countries worldwide.
In order to ensure high quality and short lead times, Meusburger took further steps towards digitalisation last year with a focus not only on product selection, but also a transparent ordering process and easy handling. The fact that in 2021 more than half of the enquiries and orders were generated via the Meusburger shops goes to show how customers benefit from the digital service.
In 2021 Meusburger had a turnover of around 302 million euros and thus an increase of 16 percent compared to the previous year. “Despite the still tense economic situation and the challenges in 2021, we were able to continue to support our customers as a reliable supplier and as a result achieve our turnover goal of 302 million euros. We are optimistic that we will also achieve significant double-digit growth this year” says Guntram Meusburger. To meet these demands, Meusburger uses the Wivo software as a complete solution for active knowledge management in the company. As a full-range supplier in the industry, the standard parts manufacturer offers all the products and digital services that customers need to realise their projects. In addition to the well-established product range of plates, special machining, components, hot runner and control systems and workshop equipment, a software & consulting division was launched in 2021. Also, around 340 field sales staff provide the best possible on-site support to customers. This guarantees ideal all-round service, which means reliability and project security for Meusburger’s customers.
The company built new warehouses in the subsidiary companies in India and Mexico in 2021 and expanded the warehouse in China. Another office building was also constructed in Vorarlberg, to be prepared for further growth. With the 6.5 hectare property in Hohenems, a total of approx. 20 hectares of land is now available to the standard parts manufacturer, which still offers possibilities for expansion. In spring, 200 employees will already be moving into the new office building.
