ITMA Asia in Shanghai – the first exhibition of the complete Saurer Group, proved to be a very successful event for the Group. Being the only machine manufacturer launching three completely new machines, the Saurer booth was attracting a large number of visitors from both China and abroad. The new sustainability label: E3 - the triple added value that was launched in Shanghai, was extremely well received by customers, as the label focuses on all essential features of a machine.

The first Saurer press conference held during the exhibition saw the Group’s CEO, Mr Daniel Lippuner and the Business Units CEO’s highlight the drive, passion and innovation with which the Group had entered the exhibit.

During the press conference Mr Daniel Lippuner revealed bits of what Saurer has been concentrating on the first year of the “new era”. The concentration on customers, the decentralization of the internal structure that allows decisions to be taken fast and close to the customer is paying off. The applause the Group received for the new products combined with the new customer oriented drive makes a promise of a bright future.
Like every birthday, the first birthday of Saurer on the 4th of July 2014, was celebrated worldwide enthusiastically.

The birthday cakes were arranged worldwide for all the employees and festivities included poems to the “young one” in Germany as well as tree planting ceremonies in India. The pictures that were received were such of happy faces. Passion for people is something that Saurer wrote on its milestones a year ago and smiling faces worldwide confirm that the road taken is the right one. May the continuous years be as successful as the first one. Happy birthday Saurer !
