GM Blog: 2023 Market Trends & Thought-Leadership by John Cochrane

Last year we successfully branched out of the home appliance industry & home appliance processing by acquiring new customers and new applications. Since the borders opened and we’ve had greater face-to-face conversations with our customers, we’ve been able to gain insights and exposure to emerging technologies and other applications which has equipped us to serve other industries and expand the scale of projects we take on.

Automation isn’t just for complete production lines anymore. We’re now getting more involved in single cell or single operation solutions and problem solving where it could be 2-3 cells or even single cells delivered.
