Climate protection without aluminium? Difficult! This light metal is enormously important, not only as a material for renewable energy such as in the solar industry, but also because it contributes to climate protection in industries such as vehicle manufacture through its special material properties. Why is this the case? The lighter construction methods and longer-lasting products made possible by reduce energy consumption – which is good for the climate! Aluminium: Increasingly the material of first choice  The advantages of aluminium over other metals mean that it is increasingly the material of choice in industries that promote climate protection. In areas previously reserved for steel and stainless steel, for example, a wide variety of aluminium alloys are used today. These alloys have to meet high demands – and this is where alimex aluminium comes into play. The high-precision cast plates and components produced by alimex guarantee excellent dimensional stability for sensitive applications and cost savings resulting from the elimination of distortion, less waste, faster turnaround times and longer product life cycles. This makes the use of aluminium as a material (even) more attractive.  How does aluminium help the automotive industry with climate protection? It’s very simple: Simply consider the fact that...

Everybody, every society, every company goes through crises – if you believe the economic researchers, over a period of ten years, this will be true for 80 percent of all companies. Often it also hits companies that are extremely well-positioned in the market and have a strong brand. But why does one company make the turnaround, while many others unfortunately disappear from the market? In the public domain, the term turnaround management is often associated primarily with terms such as restructuring, shrinkage, or austerity programs – measures that focus primarily on short-term goals. It gets forgotten that turnaround management primarily means sustainably setting up a troubled company for the future and, long-term, bringing it back into the zone of success. From my own experience as a consultant and CEO of a medium-sized company, there are four key factors that determine success or failure: Factor 1: Simultaneous consideration of the market side and the cost side “You can’t shrink to greatness”! Pure cost-cutting will not take you to your goal; above all, you have to examine the market aspect intensively and ask yourself, as management, which segments the company can serve, and wishes to serve, in the future. Defining a strategy...
