Hunkeler Hosts Tenth Innovationdays, Reports Positive Business Results
Several video interviews were conducted on the show floor, featuring commentary from Hunkeler executives, partners and customers, including Standard’s Business Manager Hunkeler, Johan Laurent. “One of the great benefits at Innovationdays is the ability to see applications flow across multiple booths, which allows the visitor to experience truly continuous, highly efficient workflows—throughout the entire value-added chain, from requirement to solution,” explained Laurent.
During the opening day press conference, Hunkeler announced positive business results for 2012 and further expansion of their Wikon headquarters. A healthy order book and strong demand during the past few months have led the company to increase staff levels from 250 to 300 employees. CEO Stefan Hunkeler attributes the company’s success to continued reinvestment into the development of new solutions, coupled with a passionate focus on helping customers transform their businesses.
Hunkeler Innovationdays continues to steadily gain international prestige and popularity. Extending the duration of the event by another day proved to be a good decision and will be carried on in 2015. Dates for the next Innovationdays have already been set for February 23-27, 2015 and visitors can expect even more advancements in technology with sophisticated process control, increased automation, enhanced versatility and flexibility.
