Market situation and customers
The situation in the agricultural sector is pleasantly stable even in times of Corona. However, there are still major differences from manufacturer to manufacturer.
The development of our new customers in the areas of agricultural machinery, commercial vehicles, railways, shipbuilding and industry is encouraging.
Fairs and social media
In 2022 we plan to present ourselves at the CastForge fair from June 21-23. in Stuttgart as well as at the InnoTrans trade fair from September 20-23. in Berlin. We look forward to again having interesting conversations with potential new and regular customers.
At the same time, you can also contact us via LinkedIn https://de.linkedin.com/company/isselburg-guss-und-verarbeitung-gmbh.
Certifications and Approvals
The successful auditing of DIN EN ISO 9001, 14001, 50001 and IATF 16949 in 2021 confirmed the process orientation of our company. This foundation also allows us to successfully pass customer audits from a wide variety of industries.
Equipment and Investment
Further investments in automation technology make us more attractive to our customers.
Thanks to the optimized production of GJS, we are able to offer ADI economically and have been supplying this material in series for years.
Employees, trade agreements and training
With the challenge of labor-intensive industries, such as the foundry industry, we are constantly challenged to drive improvement to offset or overcompensate for growing labor costs through appropriate productivity gains. So far, we have achieved this only to a limited extent, so that we are continuing to push ahead with automation with a corresponding job reduction. Unfortunately, this pays off more and more, as one can also assume that the collective bargaining agreement will experience further increases, which are always difficult to represent in our markets.
In 2022 we will continue our successful cooperation with our personnel service providers in terms of „training“. Accordingly, we have advertised the apprenticeships in the job market.
by the way
2021 was marked by the corona pandemic. The company was spared the virus through consistent compliance with the IHI hygiene rules and the disciplined behavior of the employees.
For 2022, both the rise in material costs and the strategy of taxing energy costs in Germany will pose additional challenges for the entire foundry industry. The IHI team will also master this in order to be there for our customers in the best possible way.
