MD´s Message

Dear business partners:

We are already well into 2015 but what an excellent start we had. And the thanks goes to you, our customers. An overwhelming order intake by the end of March, far exceeding our expectations.

This positive response demonstrates to us that a consistent high quality combined with a balanced pricing policy does pay off in this competitive market. Our efforts are now focused on handling and completing all pending projects at the accustomed high level.

In the meantime, our new aircraft tow tractors CHALLENGER 280 and CHALLENGER 550 are already in operation in Singapore, Japan and Ireland. These two new models have been designed and built to handle aircraft types A350, B78 and B748-8; the first feedbacks have been very positive.

At this point we wish to thank you all once again for the confidence you have shown in us and our products in the past, and look forward to a further successful cooperation.
