Time for weighing and desire for new projects
The end of 2019 is coming and, as always, we try to make a balance, waiting for the final data. Also this year we met obstacles and unexpected events that have necessarily led to review timing in achiving our objectives: some of them have been reached, other postponed. The question arises: are we on the right track? I am sure the answer is yes, and results confirm it.
In Italy, we see a steady growth (in the last six years more than 30%); abroad the results have an alternating trend with great successes on one hand and some disappointed expectations on the other. This can be read considering the crisis in some markets (for example Germany, which however remains our first export country), but also some forecast mistakes on our part. Certainly we have to go on, convinced and convincing, our path of affirmation and conquest of national and world markets.
I would like to announce, in this regard, the opening of the new company Aquatechnik North America in Canada, precisely in Oakville, Ontario, near Toronto, which will distribute our products throughout North America, with the ambition to become one of the strategic markets for our group in the coming years.
Therefore, with evidence of a positive balance, we can only thank the customers who have helped us to the path, the employees who have committed themselves achieving the objectives, and the technicians and professionals believing in the quality of our products.
To all of you, my dearest, the Petenà family and I wish a Merry Christmas and a happy 2020… hoping to reach your families and beloved ones.
CEO, Marco Petenà
