VPF are looking back on successful 2009

In opposition to a common trend of the adhesives industry being affected by the finance crisis, German VPF GmbH from Sprockhoevel reports constant sales in 2009, ranging marginally below the 2008 annual turnover. 

According to the company's management the performance is based on the fact that especially in hard business times customers do rely on proven quality instead of making any experiments. By specializing in innovative self-adhesive solutions and small minimum quantities, VPF is less affected by the crisis than bigger players, who are rather suffering from drops in orders due to falls of consumer's demands. Additionally, VPF made a just-in-time investment in a new hotmelts coating system, opening up new ways of services and projects for customers from this sector. 

Moreover, the German company keeps relying on solvent-based adhesives, while several competitors have already decided to erase those from their portfolios. That is why VPF will be able to keep offering these highly specialized self adhesives, which are demanded in times of crisis as well. www.vpf.de
