Its turnover reached $775 million euro last year.
Answering the question of our correspondent about his expectations regarding the Russian market, Klaus Fischer said that the market was interesting, but, unfortunately, entrepreneurs worked and negotiated faster than politicians did.

In particular, he drew attention to the company's participation in the construction of such important objects as Zenit Arena in St. Petersburg, Voronezh nuclear power plant etc. The same day, the journalists visited the factory, which produces plastic and metal fixing systems of general purpose.
