On the 30th anniversary of the company founded in 1984, VITRONIC looks back on a very successful 2014. In addition to the strong growth of the parent company, the international subsidiaries also recorded large orders and increase in sales.

Since its establishment in 1984, today VITRONIC is represented on four continents with more than 700 employees, including more than 200 engineers. VITRONIC products are currently used in over 40 countries. The high competitiveness of its innovative products is reflected in sales and orders. “Consolidated sales and overall performance combined totaling 120 million euros, as well as incoming orders totaling €130 million have exceeded our expectations,” says general manager and sole shareholder Dr. Norbert Stein. This makes VITRONIC the top-selling company of industrial machine vision systems in Europe.

Particularly encouraging is the development of the business of the VITRONIC Group companies in the Middle East (traffic technology) and in the US (logistics) as well as of the parent company. Over 60% of the orders are now being generated by the Group companies. 2015 should also see a successful continuation of growth: New orders have already exceeded the plan in the first quarter.
