Pioneer Newsletter Q2 - 2018

The 2018 World Cup is an excellent example of how a small nation or team can excel on an international stage. Croatia illustrates this best in how they took on big footballing names such as England and Argentina and emerged victorious to book their place in the final itself.

You have to take your hat off to this small team from a country with a population of around 4.2 million – that’s half the size of another small country, namely Switzerland. We congratulate the Croatian team and its manager, Zlatko Dalic. They showed how top players such as Luka Modric, Ivan Rakitic and Mario Mandzukic, among others, who enjoy careers with leading clubs such as Real Madrid and Juventus, can combine to forge a dynamic and determined national squad.

What does this tell us? That even a relatively small organization or company can enjoy great international success when the team is the right one. I am so proud to have the privilege of leading a team of top engineers and great employees, a team that never ceases to push back the boundaries of what is possible by producing amazing products. Making new discoveries together, planning professionally and executing that plan together; this is the recipe for success that keeps CEDES at the forefront. 

Every two months, a top CEDES ‘player’ is selected as a CEDES Pioneer. The winner for the last quarter’s award was Peter Grüninger, whom we recognized for his excellent work in the introduction of new products. Congratulations to him. Again, this achievement was only possible thanks to teamwork.

Our new APS (Absolute Positioning System) range of products, designed for elevators, is one of these new generation products that has carved out a niche for itself in the market. I am pleased that it is being produced and delivered in large numbers. I am even more pleased that a large multinational has decided to use our APS for its new generation of elevators.
