A brief retrospective
GreCon, with its registered office in Alfeld near Hanover, the world’s leading manufacturer in preventive fire protection and measurement technology in the wood processing industry, had a successful financial year in 2012. Many hundreds of small and large projects were successfully implemented all over the world and completed to the full satisfaction of its customers. The company was able to significantly increase the number of employees, especially in the areas of customer service and production, and expanded its international network with additional sales and service offices. The management is optimistic about the financial year 2013 and is expecting a growth year.
Tradition in new design
To make its communicative look more appealing to customers, GreCon has decided on an optimisation and make-over of its Corporate Design. At this year´s Ligna, the company will present its booth, brochures and other marketing and communication material in the new design.
Of course, the new communications will be in line with the more than 100-year history of the company and the recognition of the company building, designed in 1911 by Walter Gropius, and announced UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2011. In fact, one element of the new design of the communicative appearance is one of the fundamental ideas of Gropius, who said: “Colourful is my favourite colour”.
What’s new from GreCon
At LIGNA 2013, GreCon will exhibit a large number of product innovations and product developments in the areas of measurement technology and spark detection and extinguishment. In the field of measurement devices, the highlights include - the new DMR 6000 and DML 6000 generation for reliable and accurate thickness measurement - the high-precision weighing scale HPS 5000 for highly accurate measurement of weight-per-unit-area and material distribution, and the new SUPERSCANners for surface inspection and particle recognition of wood based panels.
In the field of fire and explosion prevention, the highlights are in the various areas of detection, extinguishing and operation. Prominent among these are the new thermo- and hot particle detectors, the ultra-high-speed extinguishment technology BS 7 UHS and the BS 7 NET for easy and clear operation of the spark extinguishing system from the control station.
In the area of services, GreCon now offers the intelligent remote service tool SATELLITE. With this new online support, customers can benefit from a service product that provides a secure, easy and fast access to the control software, and all other relevant data of measuring systems installed by GreCon. This allows GreCon-experts to quickly analyse and resolve possible faults to keep downtime as low as possible.
