Dear readers,

Corona is still the top topic in all business meetings as the full impact of the crisis on the economy comes more and more clear. Machine exports from Germany for example were hit hard by the corona pandemic in the second quarter. Between April and June 2020, they fell by 22.9 percent year-on-year to 35.2 billion euros. In the first quarter, exports were still 5 percent below the previous year's figure; for the first six months there was a cumulative export decline of 14.1 percent. Read more about it here.

Also in the News: Visiconsult initiates generational change: Lennart Schulenburg joined the management board of the X-ray system manufacturer, alongside his father Hajo Schulenburg. The promotion of Lennart Schulenburg is part of a long-term strategy to ensure the continued existence of the company. Find out more here.

This month, the spotlight is on products from GOM and AutovimationThey are definitely worth a look.

Best Regards,

Florian Niethammer
