“Leaders in the elevators industry are moving to service activities”
Last year, our company registered a turnover of around 14 million euros and for the current fiscal year forecast a 10% increase in revenues. Upfront estimate based on signed contracts lately and on strengthening of exports deliveries. It should be noted that at this time, nationally, we have a market share of 8% on elevators segment.
Based on experience gained in the field and using high quality assemblies for Elmas elevators, we provide to our customers customized products (non-standard), which optimally meet the clients demands. We recently started a collaboration with Mitsubishi Elevators & Escalators (part of Mitsubishi Electric corporation), so from January this year we started to sell in Romania a wide range of standard elevators and escalators manufactured by the renowned Japanese company.
It should be noted that we provide a full range of services (consulting, design, installation and service) including for this type of installations. With the development of the company, it was decided setting up a department of design and concept, through which we provide specific services for production and delivery of customized products and solutions that meet the most demanding applications in the field. We have the ability to continuously promote innovative models and applications in electrical industry, which can then be embedded easily in the Elmas elevators.
We support this activity and we launch in the latter part of 2011, a testing laboratory, which will actively contribute to the improvement of applied research. Regarding the impact of economic recession on our company, the sharp drop recorded in recent years, the number of new real estate projects - and beyond this - has led to the contracting of sales volume, but we succeeded to some extent to counteract this negative trend, by increasing the orders and assembling works on various foreign markets, where the overall situation is more favorable..
