Relaunch Website

The 2016 relaunch updates the design and functionality of our web presence. The Responsive Web Design enables the website content to be displayed in a user-friendly way, both on a desktop PC and on mobile devices. The use of a new Content Management System (Typo3) is the best prerequisite for ensuring that our website is always up-to-date. Independent web presences for our subsidiaries in Malaysia and Brazil make it possible to provide customised content for those local markets.
