Managing Director

We are evaluating whether to manufacture parts on-site in India
Rolf Gaenz, Managing Director of leading German automation service provider AC-Automation, shares information about its clientele all over the world, its growth in various markets, and the latest trends dominating the automation industry with Fibre2Fashion.

What are the qualities that distinguish AC Automation's products from your competitors' in Germany and elsewhere globally?

AC-Automation is the only German supplier in the market. Therefore, we focus on providing the highest German standards regarding quality, on-time delivery, on-site services as well as continued customer support for customised automation solutions in the man-made fibre industry.

Which countries are your biggest clients? Where does India figure?

We have delivered systems worldwide over the last 25 years. In the past five years, the main business was done in China and India. Although the Chinese man-made fibre market is significantly larger than India's, the order volume was about equal in both countries for our company.

In Asia, who is your biggest client?

Our customers worldwide include mostly the big players of the market. For these customers, we improved the traditional concepts and developed new handling solutions with even higher efficiency, which are providing a much shorter ROI to our customers.
