Dear Sir or Madam,

In the years 2012 till 2014, we modernized and extended numerous locations of ours. The focus is on expansion of production and assembly areas; moreover, additional test and technology centers went into operation. In this period, we invested a total of approx. 70 million euros. We plan to continue this strategy: In China and in the USA, we will pool Dürr activities at new campus locations by 2017. The benefits: improved service, closer customer proximity and shorter response times. Read more about it in this edition.

Best wishes

Ralf W. Dieter
CEO of Dürr AG
