ETF has the flexibility to integrate specific client requirements in our machines and systems. This endeavor to offer very individual solutions is supported by our in-house R&D department. Our broad organization also enables us to take on projects in what are for us less familiar areas. In the first instance, we serve as consultants in our contacts with our clients, with the aim of devising an optimum specification to meet their need. As soon as we have acquired a satisfactory picture of this need, we draw up a clear proposal of how our machines and systems can be used to meet it.
The added value of ETF machines and systems can best be expressed in processes to which one or more of the following criteria apply:
- High degree of reliability
- High speeds or production numbers
- Difficult to process qualities
- High degree of automation
- Simple and user-friendly controls
ETF's sales and service organization extends throughout the world. For many years, a good 90% of our products has been destined for export. In the years to come we expect the market for our equipment to undergo further developments in two directions. In the first place, companies are experiencing an increased need for advanced support machines and systems due to their production volume requirements.
Secondly, the presence of such large high volume companies will promote the growth of specialists looking for extremely specific machines and systems.
Each of these markets demands a different approach and has different investment possibilities. ETF recognizes these differences and is able to offer appropriate advice according to the wishes and possibilities of its clients!
