GETT successfully completes the 2015/16 financial year

Capacitive keyboards and input systems are the major drivers of growth

Treuen. - GETT Gerätetechnik GmbH was once again able to report growth in the business year that just finished. Turnover rose by eight percent to EUR 15.6 million, while profits even increased to a far greater degree. “This growth has not just appeared by chance,” Managing Director, Pierre Beer, explains; “for in addition to the increases on the income side, we also made major investments.”

The workforce, for example, increased by 10 people to a current figure of 165 employees; viewed globally and including the foreign subsidiaries, the GETT corporate group employed as many as 180 people. GETT also invested about EUR 1 million in the production and technology department. New machines and equipment, which enable the company to assemble touch operating systems with the highest quality levels. were the key items here.

On the sales side, the company was able to secure further international partnerships and initiate new commitments. Significant developments here were the direct operations in the Middle East region with its economic centre in Dubai, the relocation of the GETT US subsidiary from New Jersey to the more favourable strategic location in Houston and the market launch in the Asia-Pacific region. 
The company was particularly able to identify huge sales potential in the APAC region just mentioned and has already achieved initial successes there.
“We don’t want to operate there because this century seems to be becoming the Asia-Pacific century, but because of the enormous growth taking place in this hemisphere now. With our own personnel, efficient sales partners and a dedicated strategy, we’ll increase our market share during the next few years and not least reinforce our own business site in Germany as a result,” says Pierre Beer, viewing the future with optimism.

In terms of technology, the company has continued to develop into a provider of complete operating solutions. Almost fifty percent of enquiries now involve complex technical systems, which require innovative solutions.
Alongside this, the range of ready-to-use medical keyboards has been expanded and this will remain a growth segment in the years to come.

Pierre Beer is looking forward to the future, based on a sense of satisfaction at the past financial year: “I’m certain that we made the correct decisions during the past twelve months in order to remain in the top half of the league. The ROI on the most recent investments is already making itself felt; we also have an experienced, efficient and proactive team. I enjoy being part of this success story and the next few chapters will be even more profound than those in the past.”
