"2021 was a year of restrictions, and even this year we have not yet reached the end of the tunnel with regard to the Corona pandemic," said Managing Director and Partner Bernhard Juchheim, summarizing the situation. He added that JUMO has so far come through the crisis generally unscathed: "The most important message is that although there have been some serious bouts of illness, there have been no fatalities among our approximately 2,400 employees."

Employees as top priority

According to Managing Director Dimitrios Charisiadis, JUMO implemented a consistent hygiene and protection concept worldwide at an early stage, with employee health as the top priority. "But at the same time, since many of our products are needed in critical infrastructures such as the food industry or the pharmaceutical sector, we did everything we could to maintain our ability to deliver."

Economically, the Corona pandemic nevertheless left a clear mark: "We ended 2020 with a drop in sales of around 6 percent compared to the previous year. In 2021, we were able to start a race to catch up with above-average order intake and sales figures, but we are currently feeling the global material shortage all the more." Overall, the forecast for the current year is nevertheless positive, he said.

Three strategic pillars

For the future, JUMO is focusing on clear strategic goals, which Managing Director Michael Juchheim explained: "On the one hand, we will supplement and round off our portfolio with new measurement variables on the basis of a very clear industry focus. Secondly, as a solution provider for the automation industry, we want to drive forward the digitalization of our customers. The third pillar of growth is the expansion of service and training offerings for our customers."
