Successful Launch of New Strategic Organization - HARTING Vending becomes HARTING Systems

It is not just the name that is new. On October 1, 2006 HARTING Vending GmbH & Co. KG became HARTING Systems GmbH & Co. KG. With the change of company name the new strategic organization of the Company was introduced at the same time. A quarter of a year after this move Stefan Bruns, the managing director of HARTING Systems, is very pleased with the way that the company, headquartered at Plant 5 in Espelkamp, is developing: “The financial year is off to a positive start," as the managing director affirms.

The consistent, ongoing development of the systems business is at the core of the new organization. The company is now also actively engaged as a supplier of complete and sub-systems for use in industrial automation and power distribution within the HARTING Technology Group. HARTING Systems supports, within this sector, the development, production and marketing of customized, client tailored solutions. “We have already achieved the first successes,” reports Stefan Bruns. “In addition to these core activities, we will also continue to offer manufacturing services to external customers. We have all the necessary manufacturing skills in stamping and bending technology at our disposal, as well as the welding and coating technologies in place at our ultra-modern, automated plant.”

In addition, the automated vending and POS systems will remain a strategic business area for the renamed company and will be further developed. In the HARTING vending and POS systems that HARTING successfully markets at home and abroad tobacco products and higher priced commodities worth protecting (such as razor blades, for example) are kept in safe storage and issued on payment.

Cigarette vending machines continue to be manufactured at HARTING Systems GmbH & Co. KG. “Our modern vending machines, which can be sited internally and externally, do, of course, fully comply with the regulations of the legislation protecting young people which have been in force since the start of the year,” adds Stefan Bruns.

“The renaming of the company and the aims and objectives of its business send clear signals to the markets, as well as to its employees and throughout the entire Group. HARTING Systems stands for the continuity and expansion of its current market position in vending systems, as well as the entry into new markets by making use of the structures and synergies of the HARTING Technology Group. The present strategic form of organization that has been chosen will be pursued in a target and results focused manner," as the managing director of HARTING Systems explained.
