The current raw material prices are certainly reflected in a tendency towards lighter weight products. We are offering technologies that enable the customer to reduce weight of their products while keeping the performance of a high weight product. Furthermore, geotextiles, hygiene and filtration products will have big impact. I also expect new applications to emerge.
We will have the biggest benefit for global wealth if each region concentrates on their competitive strengths. That implies that we will have a big exchange on all levels between developed and developing countries and we should not have any hesitations whatsoever to cooperate. Truetzschler group for example already has subsidiaries in important emerging markets such as India, China and Brazil.
Companies that adapt the concept of sustainability will have a competitive advantage in the long run. Truetzschler Nonwovens can offer quality products that have a long lifetime and that are optimized for energy consumption and efficiency rates. Consulting and supporting our customers in terms of sustainability is a must.
