Dear reader,

Orders have been very strong in 2021, which meant that staff who had seen their hours cut brought back to full-time duty. This gives us courage and confidence to continue on our charted course.

Sadly, we remain subject to the restrictions imposed due to Covid-19 both in our personal and professional lives. We have systematically adopted measures designed to protect our
employees’ health. Among others, we procured 15,000 self-tests before the German government issued a mandate requiring companies to do so (see page 10 for more information).

We are making excellent progress in moving staff into our production and logistics centre at the Neckarsulm site. Several departments have already begun working at the new building, whose unique design makes it an architectural highlight on Rötelstrasse in Neckarsulm.

Another story that will be covered in this issue of verbinder is the 10th anniversary of binder Sweden. We’ll also be reporting on our M16 connectors and the central role social media plays at binder. Finally, you can also find a fantastic interview with binder USA in this edition.

Let’s work together to meet the challenges that lie ahead.

Happy reading!
Kindest regards,

Markus Binder

General Manager
