But that is just what sets us apart from domestic competitors and suppliers from abroad: we won’t stop until we can present our customers a qualitatively and economically portable solution for the production of aluminium or magnesium components “, grins CEO Michael Lai ward. An approach that is without a doubt. Because eventually it goes not only to the realization of an efficient pressure casting process, but also just about to meet the high demands on the component and its future use. The philosophy to provide customers with complete ready to install components, the company was boosted by the economic crisis and contributed to a healthy and continuous growth.
