An impressive year lies behind MicroStep Europa GmbH. The company reported a significant increase in revenue and machine sales. One visible sign of the positive development is the MicroStep CompetenceCenter North. The training and demonstration center at the Dorsten (NRW) branch office was inaugurated in May 2022.
MicroStep Europa GmbH is reviewing the year 2022, and the company based in Bad Wörishofen, Bavaria, can look back on an eventful and enormously successful year. New technologies, new infrastructure and record revenue growth. The balance sheet is more than 40 percent higher than in 2021.
Behind the MicroStep Group as a whole and MicroStep Europa GmbH in particular lies an exciting and, despite all the global challenges, also successful year. The interest in the different products is still constantly high. The entire Group was able to increase the number of systems sold by more than 20 percent. At MicroStep Europa, the results for Germany, Austria, Switzerland and other parts of Central Europe look even better for 2022. Already in 2021, more systems were sold than ever before - now the record year has even been topped. Around 30 percent more systems were sold in 2022, resulting in an overall increase in revenue of more than 40 percent.
"This is the reward for hard work: Because the foundadtion of our success is the combination of innovative solutions and the great commitment of our employees. Added to this is the fact that we have built an excellent reputation as a strong partner for many sectors. Accordingly, we operate industry independently and are solidly positioned for the future," says Johannes Ried, Managing Director of MicroStep Europa GmbH.
Demand grew in all technology areas in which MicroStep offers high-end solutions: Laser and waterjet as well as plasma and oxyfuel technology. "This shows us that our strengths come into play precisely when the general conditions are not exactly optimal: Versatile and process-safe solutions, an enormously diversified product portfolio, systems for different budgets and, in addition, our proven top service are the central reasons why we have recorded a year with growth at all levels," says Johannes Ried, Managing Director of MicroStep Europa.
New laser and new press brake segment well received
Two new additions to the company's solution portfolio also quickly contributed to the overall result. On the one hand, the in-house MSE SmartFL series, a high-performance and at the same time inexpensive system for high-quality 2D laser cutting. On the other hand, innovative bending technology, which delivers precise and process-reliable bending results for metalworking companies thanks to numerous assistance systems. Here, too, MicroStep Europa offers solutions ranging from small press brakes to fully automated bending cells for different needs.
Substantial investment in infrastructure as a foundation for the future
In addition, investments in infrastructure and staff are also bearing fruit. With the opening of the MicroStep CompetenceCenter North in 2022, a new training and demonstration center was inaugurated at the branch office in Dorsten ( North Rhine-Westphalia ). The new technology and logistics center is located directly next to the company headquarters in Bad Wörishofen (Bavaria) and is nearing completion. More than 6 million euros are being invested in the CompetenceCenter South. "With our investments and innovations, we are broadening the foundation for success in the coming years. More than 40 percent growth in revenue confirms that our hard work as a team is paying off and that the course has also been set correctly for further development," says Johannes Ried.
