Welcome to the winter edition of our Transform newsletter concluding an eventful and successful year for Lindner. A definite highlight was the inauguration of our new production facility in Feistritz/Drau, making our manufacturing processes ever more efficient and flexible. At the same time, it is testament to our company’s positive financial development. 2017 has been the best-selling year in our company’s history with double-digit growth rates. Ultimately, it is you, valued customers, who have made it possible by continuously putting your trust in us. We truly appreciate it.
The newsletter focuses this time on plastics recycling and the recent developments in the sector, which are closely linked to China’s decision to dramatically curb the import of plastic waste. A lack of impulses from the political landscape reinforce the resulting uncertainty. Our examples show how companies can take advantage of this situation – be it by supplying high-quality recyclates selling at great prices, or by handling the processing and selling of their granules themselves. And these examples underline the fact that we, with our extensive experience in the industry and tailor-made shredders, washers and dryers, with individual components or complete turnkey lines, are a partner to trust.
These contributions also document our increasing internationality. We operate bases in Germany, the United States and Singapore, and will continue to expand our global presence, focusing on Latin America and Asia. And we are already looking forward to opening our new headquarters in North Carolina/USA next year, when we celebrate our 70th anniversary, and creating ample space there for the presentation, preparation and repair of our machines.
But first of all, we wish you a happy holiday season and a prosperous New Year.
