The Fidas® devices are now used in many countries in Europe, Asia and in America in national environmental monitoring networks for fine dust measurements. Our most recent order for 44 units came to us from Ireland.
A few years ago, we were happy and satisfied if we managed to sell 20 to 30 of our welas® aerosol spectrometers in a year. Today, we are selling around 300 Fidas® units a year. Of course, the rerequisite for this success was certification, and through this approval for regulatory measurements. We were also able to demonstrate in practice that the very high availability of Fidas® that is required in the standard is indeed met in reality. This has also impressed our customers.
But we also had to learn to manage rapid growth. Production areas have been more than doubled in size, and many new employees have been hired. New production processes have been set up. We are now in the process of optimizing these processes.
To safeguard the future of the company, we have now also set up an Advisory Board with experts from the areas of Controlling, Marketing and Sales, as well as Quality Management. The Advisory Board, on which the daughters of company founder Leander Mölter are also represented, advises the Management Board.
