THE DIRECT PATH TO SUCCESS IS VERTICAL

Convincing benefits for everyone who knows how to use them: Thanks to the vertical expansion, the production of ZIEHL-ABEGG offers all components in the highest quality and efficient logistics with reliable supply.

Production competence as a competitive benefit

ZIEHL-ABEGG relies on maximal production depth in any respect! For example, the company expanded development and production of its dedicated control technology into a thriving business branch, produces high-class fans in its own plastic production, operates its own aluminium foundry and has an internal tool construction in which many – in particular some very special – tools are produced in-house. ZIEHL-ABEGG ensures high flexibility in production competence in order to guarantee for the greatest possible independence from material flow of the pre-suppliers, as well as quality and comprehensive product know-how. This makes for the best prerequisites in order to meet the customers’ wishes of flexibility and quality in the upcoming years as well.

Of course, ZIEHL-ABEGG also purchases components. In its core area, the company does let any of its production competence out of its hands. This knowledge can be a decisive competitive and development advantage. Uninhibited outsourcing? Certainly not! This, too, is a way for ZIEHL-ABEGG to emphasise its technology leadership.

Technology leadership through excellent production depth

The principle “everything from a single source”, in which a company keeps as much of the production of its high-quality products under control as it can, has some clear advantages. These are advantages of which the customers can profit at least as much:

  • short times to reaction– in house just is much more flexible
  • reliable supply with parts
  • high quality of components and semi-finished goods through own quality controls
  • resource-efficiency
  • efficient logistics with short paths
  • no large warehouses

An ingenious concept of modern future-oriented corporate strategy

The advantages of a high production depth were clear for ZIEHL-ABEGG: lower transaction costs from reduced coordination necessities, higher flexibility in bottleneck situations and a broader pallet of core competences that can be developed – to name just a few. ZIEHL-ABEGG and its high production depth are a great example and exemplary project for successfully implemented production scopes.
