Successful extension of the footprint
For the third year in a row, InfraServ GmbH & Co. Knapsack KG based in Hürth close to Cologne, Germany, belongs to the 15 most actively traded industrial services in Germany. The service provider has recorded the third largest growth rate of all companies surveyed. These are the first results of the latest Lünendonk study called ‘Leading industrial service company in Germany 2015’.
“One of our strategic goals is to establish ourselves among the top industry service providers. This we have now reached the third consecutive year,” Dr Clemens Mittelviefhaus from the management board of InfraServ Knapsack said, adding: “Outstanding is our close relationship to our clients – both physical proximity and the understanding of their requirements. The expansion of our sites in Leverkusen, Dormagen, Uerdingen, and Duisburg is closely aligned with that strategy.” Total service revenues increased in 2015 by 13 percent to 107 million euros. “The significant growth rate demonstrates that the initiated actions for the best alignment of our business activities have fully grasped. We are therefore very pleased with the development,“ Dr Mittelviefhaus said.
The study considered not only the development of that sector, but also lists annually the top-15 vendors with the highest domestic sales in the industrial services segment. InfraServ Knapsack is ranking in size the 10th place. Overall, all analysed companies could increase their market footprint in the reporting period. According to Lünendonk that sector has been able to overcome the growth pause of the two years before. Maintenance and overhaul remains the core business of the services providers.
There is an optimistic outlook in the future to observe. Although 85 percent of the respondents expect modifications of their organisational structure owing to the increasing digital tranformation of our economy. However, all respondents regard themselves well positioned to meet future demands.
