Owen, October 21, 2016 - Leuze electronic, one of the world's leading innovators in the field of optical sensors, is operating in the promising areas of automation and mechanical engineering, and has assessed the current market situation as being excellent. "The order situation is very good. And this is in spite of the fact that we already achieved considerable growth in the previous year", says Ulrich Balbach, Managing Director at Leuze electronic. It looks like the company is going to finish the current financial year with double-digit growth, and even significantly more in many regions of the world. Leuze electronic is proud of the awards that the company has recently received in different areas: Leuze electronic has been included in the 2016 world market leader index as top dog in the field of optical sensors, and the company's Indian subsidiary was the only company in this industry to be presented with the IENDRA award as one of India's most rapidly expanding companies. Leuze electronic was awarded 3 technology prizes in 2016 for the latest high-end product in the safety at work area, the RSL 400 safety laser scanner. "The company's most important asset are our employees, the sensor people", says Ulrich Balbach. "In accordance with the strong growth of the company, not only are parts of the buildings being extended and new production lines set up, but many new employees with different qualifications are being looked for in all areas of the company - local, nationally and internationally - from skilled production workers to product managers and sales managers", says Sebastian Haug, HR Business Partner at Leuze electronic. "More than 150 new employees were hired in 2016, about 100 of which were hired in Germany alone." This growth strategy seems likely to continue in 2017.
