  3. Improving your process productivity to reduce your production costs whilst increasing output
  4. Harnessing innovation to keep your business moving forward


It’s a journey, not a destination

“We are always looking for improvement opportunities… Oil-free pump operation is much more positive from an environmental perspective, because we do not have to dispose large quantities of used oil and oil separation elements. Even air quality in the plant has improved significantly with oil-free pumps, because there are no oil vapours which was often the case with conventional rotary vane pumps.”

Peter Tomaschewski from the maintenance department of the Volkswagen Salzgitter plant
