Despite more difficult conditions due to the Ukraine war and ongoing delays in delivery chains, the German mechanical engineering company succeeded in increasing its sales at home and abroad. The agricultural technology, biogas (feed technology), and pumps (industry) segments were the main drivers of sales growth, while the company also managed to record increased sales of spare parts.
“Our wide product portfolio and international orientation have been a source of great stability for us in the recent years of crisis. We are pleased that last year we were also able to launch more new products and modifications and set new sector impulses,” said Harald Vogelsang, CEO of Vogelsang GmbH & Co KG.
Pump products launched last year include the EP and VY series of high-performance pumps and the new HiCone progressive cavity pump with unique conical design and innovative adjustment system.
The company recruited about 150 new employees worldwide last year, including 23 trainees.
In the next few years, Vogelsang plans to invest further in digitalization and automation, with robotics relieving the burden of routine work on highly qualified experts, enabling them to concentrate once again on their complex core activity. The company already deploys welding robots in sheet metal processing and plans the partially automated assembly of seals in the near future. In addition, Vogelsang is fitting its products with intelligent control technology to adjust operating parameters dynamically and in this way make machines and components even more efficient and durable.
“Supporting customers with our technology and expertise in their field of activity is our driving force. We are always working on improving products and processes through innovations,” added Harald Vogelsang. “This is why we are continuing to invest heavily in research and development as the ‘source of our ideas’. In addition, we aim to further establish ourselves in markets like the chemical or food technology industry and also to expand our international presence and become more accessible to customers there.”
