“We, too, are currently facing numerous challenges – ranging from material and supply bottlenecks to the shortage of skilled workers and the effects of the energy crisis,” says CEO Stephan Pittner. “Despite these generally difficult conditions in the mechanical engineering sector, we can look back on a very successful fiscal year.” Cloos would like to continue this growth course this year. The Group expects order intake and sales to continue to grow disproportionately in 2023.

Cloos would like to continue this growth course this year. The Group expects order intake and sales to continue to grow disproportionately in 2023. The potential for automated robotic welding systems worldwide is enormous, he said. Already today, Cloos has an export rate of more than 80 percent. In addition to the important markets in Germany and Europe, the number one growth market continues to be China, with a further upward trend. However, Cloos is also experiencing high demand for various automation solutions in North America.

“With many new products, we will again set high standards in manual and automated welding technology in 2023,” emphasizes Pittner. “In all product areas, we are driving innovation and further development to make our customers’ welding production more efficient.” The budget for research & development is already above the industry average and is expected to increase further in 2023.

The focus is always on the individual requirements of customers when developing and refining welding equipment, welding processes and automation components. Another development focus is Cloos’ digital solutions, which will be combined in a holistic platform in the future.
