The German headquarters contributed the largest share of the company’s total turnover with 47.9 million euros, which tops its previous year’s result by 11.6 percent. The highest percentage of growth has been achieved by the STEMMER IMAGING subsidiaries in Denmark, Poland, the Netherlands and Sweden.
„With the result of 83.7 million euros we have surpassed the 80 million euros fiscal turnover and even exceeded our target“, explains Christof Zollitsch, Managing Director at STEMMER IMAGING. “Britain‘s recent voting for „Brexit“ will certainly affect the new financial year which started on the 1st of July”, continues Zollitsch, who believes in the company’s excellent market position. “Of course, we provide all hardware and software components necessary for the development and the application of competitive machine vision systems. However, equally important is the fact, that STEMMER IMAGING customers benefit from a comprehensive range of services provided by our team with expertise and passion, such as customized hardware and software developments, feasibility studies as well as the in-house manufacture of machine vision cables to our customers’ specifications.“
„Another great example for the added value we offer our clients is the STEMMER IMAGING Machine Vision Technology Forum which attracted over 1,000 participants in last year’s event series“, Zollitsch continues. „Together with our comprehensive training program on all aspects of imaging and machine vision organised by the European Imaging Academy we were able to significantly improve the vision know-how of more than 1,500 participants over the past year. With these and many other services we create a real added value for our customers helping them realise their imaging tasks in a timely and efficient manner“, Zollitsch emphasises.
The success of this concept is not only reflected in the excellent financial result: On the 18th of July 2016 Bavaria's Minister of Economic Affairs, Media, Energy and Technology, llse Aigner, honoured STEMMER IMAGING with the "Bavaria's Best 50" award for the second time since 2013. Once again, STEMMER IMAGING is one of 50 high-growth, owner-managed medium-sized companies in Bavaria. A long-term fiscal policy, a solid corporate financing and a supportive personnel policy are the essential criteria for obtaining this award for which companies located in the Free State of Bavaria can apply every 3 years.
„I accept this award with great pride and I would like to thank all employees at STEMMER IMAGING whose commitment has given us the pleasure of receiving this award“, says Managing Director Christof Zollitsch when receiving the porcelain Bavarian lion. "The honour of being included in "Bavaria's Best 50" for the second time is a further incentive for our whole team to continue progress to further enhance our ability to optimally serve our customers.”
STEMMER IMAGING has been leading the machine vision market since 1987. It is Europe's largest technology provider in this field. In 1997 STEMMER IMAGING presented Common Vision Blox (CVB), a powerful programming library for fast and reliable development and implementation of vision solutions, which has been deployed successfully throughout the world in more than 40,000 imaging applications in various industries.
