Dear customers, partners, friends!
We are on the threshold of 2024 and looking back to 2023.
In many ways it was what we expected: plans worked out and developments occurred as expected... - but that wasn't all.
Whether for us as a company, as individuals, as a society or global community, after a turbulent 2022, we have also seen many worrying and difficult developments this year:
The war in Europe is not over - it has just received less attention. And racism, right-wing ideas, growing division in our society – all of this has never gone away but is becoming increasingly visible. While Germany is the country in Europe where racism is experienced most violently for People of Color (according to surveys), more and more Germans are still positioning themselves politically far to the right. At the same time, we look with concern to the Middle East, where the state of Israel has been the victim of unprecedented aggression within the last weeks.
A lot has changed - and not everything for the better. And yet there are things that remain. One of them is the certainty: it doesn't just "get" better - better is something you must DO! And: “getting better” always requires optimism.
This applies in society and politics, where the commitment of every individual counts. And it applies in the world in which we as a company do our projects.
Last year - the fifty-seventh of our existence - we again used challenges as opportunities. Challenges of our customers, but also our own. Where our customers needed to save money, we took this as an order. With our solutions we want to help use resources efficiently: more output with less input.
In the face of global tensions and an unprecedented energy crisis, we have adapted our internal processes and cleverly deployed our resources to not only work more sustainably, but also to provide our customers with service and solutions that truly “make a difference”. The introduction of our hybrid working model and our e-learning system last year were part of this ongoing transformation, but it continues: with AI-based products, further modularization, new technology and much more.
2023 showed us that flexibility and trust are not just empty words, but rather the foundation of our daily actions: internally and with our customers. Our employees have proven that they can not only deal with change, but also drive it forward with creativity and commitment.
What the new year will bring us – we don’t know. But one thing is certain: we will continue to pursue our path with optimism and commitment. We will see the changes as opportunities to improve ourselves, our product, and services and to provide you, our valued customers and partners, with the best service.
We look forward to beginning a year full of new possibilities together with you! And we continue to give our best, for our customers, our projects, for each other.
THANK YOU FROM THE HEART for your trust, your loyalty, and good cooperation!
We wish you and your loved ones a Merry Christmas, a peaceful New Year and happiness and health for 2024.
We are looking forward to 2024. Happy New Year and relaxing holidays to you and your loved ones!
Our work is both locally and globally driven; We have therefore decided to support nine organizations with relevant monetary amounts this year.
This year we support Reutlinger Bürgerstiftung, Drei Musketiere Reutlingen, Rappertshofen Rommelsbach, anti-discrimination work in Tübingen and the Jugendwerk Reutlingen. In addition, the Alabri education project in Madagascar and aid for people in the Congo as well as the Christoffel Blindenmission and OneDollarGlasses.
