In this respect, it is particularly important to me that we are conscious of our long-lasting tradition of over 70 years. Based on this stable foundation and success factor, we will in future continue to work with passion, experience, quality and innovative strength on solutions that our customers can rely on in order to achieve the best possible patient outcomes. We are open to, and prepared for, the dynamics of markets and will continue to adapt our business strategy where necessary in order to meet new market demands”, said Karl-Christian Storz.
