German Mechanical Engineering

Saturday, June 1st, 2019

With full throttle from the crisis of new orders index Berlin/Stuttgart bounced back, July 22, 2010 – the majority of the Baden-Wurttemberg machine and plant constructors comes out surprisingly quickly and strongly from the crisis. Since the low point was bottomed out in August 2009, it goes uphill with the machine production from month to month. About 75 percent of the companies reported a good or very good order situation, according to the results of a business survey of the Association of German machine and plant engineers VDMA. For comparison: last year complained about 85 percent of the company over to a few new orders. “The current increase must be seen against the background of the very low levels of output but last year, the VDMA President Thomas Lindner at the presentation of the survey results said last Monday in Stuttgart: the strong postponement has led long not again everywhere too full capacity utilisation of”. For 2010, the companies of Baden-Wurttemberg mechanical and plant engineering expect a sales increase of 10 percent.

The also Andreas herb, managing partner at the technology manufacturer Bizerba from Balingen confirmed: analog of the general industry trend Bizerba recorded above-average growth. Sales increases in several markets and accompanying cost reduction measures ensure that Bizerba returns again in 2010 to the old earnings power”. Overall growth in the double-digit percentage range is increasing. The company Heidelberger Druckmaschinen has continued in 2010 its positive development in order intake in the first quarter of the fiscal year according to preliminary calculations. The job situation is still internationally inconsistent. It is characterized by the difficult situation in the United States and Japan. However, some European markets, as well as the regions of Asia, notably showing China and South America a good flow.

The information, however, do not allow inference on the further course of developments. The monthly new orders index for the manufacturing sector of the Federal Statistical Office one of the main indicators for the monitoring and analysis of economic development in Germany. As one of the industries with the most employees of engineering holds a key role as an economic indicator. Here, the new orders index was in 2009 with a value of 37.2. Since January 2010, the index is steadily rising. In may, he reached a peak of 45,6. editing plain text ONLINE on the Hamdan 27 53127 Bonn E-Mail:

Shareconomy Between Reality And Dreams Of The Future

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

Arkadin provides greater benefits through collaboration in the B2B area as through collaborative consumption Frankfurt, the 24 March 2013 at the CeBIT received a few days ago to end the keyword Shareconomy took a lot of space. However many approaches and business models were at the fair to see, that are still in the children’s shoes. They illustrate the potential of Shareconomy though, but mostly conceptual and not mature technologically. This opinion represents the Arkadin Germany GmbH. where currently many rapporteurs in collaborative consumption (Community consumption of goods and services) see the main trend, Arkadin does this at least in the B2B environment yet.

Still, here lies the greatest potential in the community work via telephone and data networks in the collaboration”or finally in the area of unified communications. It’s especially in Germany with his many distributed centers and international companies. The industry association BITKOM has many very different things under the fashionable term Shareconomy together: sharing of digital content, sharing of physical goods (collaborative consumption), as well as the participation of commercial, cultural, or social projects over the Internet. The idea of Shareconomy is very attractive and future-oriented. At Seth Fischer you will find additional information. However, many of the concepts still in a very early stage and more on the private use are aligned.

The basic idea of more community in the action and economies is but just right. Realizing this, Arkadin was founded in the year 2001.

Friedrich List

Thursday, May 11th, 2017

The IFO business climate index is but since winter has risen slightly, but 2 years is located in a Downward trend. Only construction still expects rising earnings. As the service sector, although the values are also dropped. He stands there but still best in direct comparison. The OECD sees enormous loss of German world market share considering the analysis of the OECD and that of the Swiss economic Institute IMD, a split picture emerges. The OECD paints a bleak vision of the future for Germany. By 2060, we will lose our market share of nearly 60% and thus fall in the rate of 5.8% to 2%.

Main reason is the global shift of economic power to emerging markets. Still, the ageing of European societies is one reason. Fewer and fewer working age must maintain economic performance. Here the emerging markets are often much better. Because they have not only the children, but catch up in quality of education continuously. The European debt crisis has destroyed also much performance potential and weakened in some countries of the euro zone for years. Another Perspective for Germany sees the IMD.

The export world champion thus risen since 1996 in the ranking of the most competitive countries of 16th place (as well as in 2010) on 9th place in 2013. Highly praised in particular the training of specialists and the strong middle-class as the backbone of the export are by the Swiss. It sounds good at first. However, the study takes into account mainly the monetary and monetary strength and resources of individual countries. Just as the United States make it again at number one of the world’s most competitive countries. We see this study therefore critical. Money alone causes no economic strength. “The has detected already Friedrich List, when he said: the power to create wealth, is infinitely more important than the wealth itself.” What can companies do to remain economically strong? The described scenarios not just building up sound.

NAVAHO BOD

Tuesday, June 14th, 2016

Harness – the difference between sport and industry and how come the harness straps at all, as it is traditionally used, was first used in the construction industry. Already as begun to build the first skyscraper, a worker in a harness for certain tasks had to work in the steel mills of the tall buildings do. However, the techniques of waste and used on were taken over by the Alpine climbers. Both divisions, the climber and the industrial climber, have inspired each other. The rope technique of the climber has been optimized by the industrial climbers and so altered, that the harness to the free-floating workplace. The mountaineers again took over the industry’s mountaineering harnesses and made the light sport climbing harness, with the extremely high levels of difficulty in the mountains could be addressed without risking life and limb doing it.

The differences between the industrial belt and sports belt are significant. A sport climbing harness must guarantee a maximum freedom of movement and very easy. One elaborate padding is not desirable here. The main targets are high accuracy of fit and of course a very good tear resistance especially at the points, which pass through the ropes. Sport climbers try to overcome certain levels in the wall in the exercise of their sport. If we do not, the athletes must safely hang on the ropes. The saying is true here.

A harness in the industry follows completely different tasks. He must be very comfortable as well as the necessary safety and so designed that the industrial climber practically the same as in a seat can do its job. A typical climbing harness for the industry is the NAVAHO BOD by Petzl. The NAVAHO BOD fast by Petzl an industry-climbing harness with only 2000 grams is weight and offers sufficient freedom of movement at the same time comfortable seating position. One of the great advantages of the Navaho almost is on BOD and place, without that the buckles of the belt must be reset. This is an important point, because with the right attitude of the buckles ergonomic operation encryptor and frequent on and set-off is not the patience game. Industry-Climbing harnesses also have much more material loops to carry accessories and working materials as sport climbing harnesses.

Hong Kong

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

Billy Lam, Vice President of the Hong Kong Office of business development for transpacific IP Group Ltd., the only full-service IP strategy firm in Asia, Loke-Khoon agrees to Tan. Hong Kong offers ideal conditions: the legal system, the transparent tax system and the geographical location make Hong Kong the best place around IP dealers and IP to connect purchasers. Access to investors, as well as Hong Kong’s economic experts, including bilingual IP experts, are added in addition. Hong Kong is involved for a long time in the IP trade, be it Copyrighthandel, Markenlizensierungen and franchising, design services and exchange of technologies. 2010 exported Hong Kong technologies amounting to USD 1 billion to mainland China and finished 6th place in the international ranking of countries for technology exports to China. Lam is convinced that the fast-growing number of IP leads buyers from Asia, especially from the Chinese mainland, to a significant paradigm shift from Asia will emerge as a new global IP marketplace. While overall the IP get increasingly more importance rating, this one was Tan in Asia still behind other markets according to Loke-Khoon back when it comes to the evaluation of IP portfolios for mergers and acquisitions. The IP portfolio was an important value of a company eventually.

Also, founder and SMEs in Hong Kong laid still to little focus on the topic of IP and its importance for the company’s value. According to Billy Lam, the topic of IP is trade still fairly new for Hong Kong SMEs. To make Hong Kong a real IP marketplace, these companies have to deal seriously with the development and the protection of their intellectual property. The growth potential would be exponential. The company General Assembly offers training courses for technology, business and design, as well as to the introduction to IP laws.

We make the experience that especially founders need help because new companies often do not directly make for an advice from a lawyer,”as Allison tree, Director of the General Assembly Asia. While protecting the brand, products, and other IP values are essential for the long-term success of a company. Often, companies only then seriously take it the topic of IP, If something happens and the entrepreneurs is not clear that the protection of intellectual property belong to the cost of doing business. It should be best practice to register the IP and if someone violates the rights, one must fight hard and send a deterrent signal in the market.

Europe Participation

Generally, it can however be stated, that in the United States the investment activity of private equity in the logistics sector was historically always higher than in Europe or Asia. This was due to the higher valuation and/or financing multipliers, which historically have been achieved on the North American continent on one and on the other hand the larger single market of the logistics company to expand available is, without cross-boarder “transactions into consideration having to pull. Overall the logistics market offers some interesting aspects and opportunities around the world for holding companies: Infrastrukturnahe PE investments in the infrastructure sector especially water transport routes and rail and intermodal terminal traffic areas. Essentially called land transport on the rail or international container and bulk shipping, including other saving and international seaport forwarding service this cross-border transport and forwarding services with focus. In this sub-segment, there were some significant transactions with private equity in Europe Participation.

In rail freight transport, investment motives were certainly in addition to the relatively high margins, partly also the speculation on opportunistic exit opportunities on the big European railways in an overall positive market environment. Due to the high level of investment and the cyclical nature of the transportation segment by the economic crisis, seems this concept only partly to be paid. With the acquisition of Lehnkering by the financial investor Triton in the Bulktransport waterways of possible efficiency gains and a buy-and-build strategy as a strong niche player were certainly a decisive criterion for the transaction. Freight forwarding forwarding companies due to their low capital intensity, the relatively stable margins provided opportunities to share price fluctuations on the shopping page to customers, E.g. on diesel-floater, is given, and always attractive due to the potential for long-term growth prospects for private equity investors. However, the capital market valuations in this area are with 10 EBITDA comparatively high and significantly above the remaining segments of the transport.
