HAIGER, April 2023 - The CLOOS Group has closed the 2022 financial year with record figures. The welding and automation specialists from Haiger were able to increase turnover orders by nearly 30 percent to more than 200 million euros compared to the previous year.
"We, too, are currently facing numerous challenges - ranging from material and supply bottlenecks to the shortage of skilled workers and the effects of the energy crisis," says CEO Stephan Pittner. "Despite these generally difficult conditions in the mechanical engineering sector, we can look back on a very successful business year."
CLOOS intends to continue on this course of growth this year. The group expects order intake and turnover to increase at a disproportionately high rate in 2023. The potential for automated welding robot systems is enormous worldwide, he said. Already today, CLOOS has an export rate of more than 80 percent. In addition to the important markets in Germany and Europe, the number one growth market continues to be China, with a further upward trend. However, CLOOS is also experiencing high demand for various automation solutions in North America.
"With many new products, we will again set high standards in manual and automated welding technology in 2023," emphasizes Pittner. "In all product areas, we are pushing innovations and further developments to make our customers' welding production more efficient." The budget for research & development is already above the industry average and is expected to increase further in 2023. The focus is always on the individual requirements of customers when it comes to new and further development of welding machines, welding processes and automation components. Another development focus is the digital solutions of CLOOS which will be combined in a complete platform in the future.
