At the end of another fiscal year for POLARIXPARTNER GmbH, the company can once again look back at twelve months of sustained success. With an increased permanent staff now numbering 25 and a wide network of specialist partners, this young business consultancy is working with clients both inside and outside Germany. At 70% of turnover, Automotive is the most important market, and figures for both revenue and profit exceeded the ambitious targets set for the past fiscal year.
At this year’s POLARIXPARTNER family get-together, Managing Director Engelbert Wimmer took the opportunity to thank staff for their efforts in the fiscal year which ended on 30th September 2013: “The dedicated work of our highly-qualified teams on over 60 completed projects made it possible for us to markedly increase our turnover and anchored us firmly in our position on the consultancy horizon,” said Wimmer, adding that the company remained “on a clear and successful course thanks to the growth strategy agreed on in 2011/2012.”
By increasing its permanent staff with five new appointees, POLARIXPARTNER has expanded its position as an ambitious, up-and-coming consultancy: “This measure strengthens the breadth, professionalism, and quality of what we offer as a holistic full-service consultancy in a lasting way. It gives us the flexibility we will need to keep developing in the future,” explains POLARIXPARTNER Managing Director Markus Wiederstein.
The company was able to meet exacting demands in terms both of visible conceptual innovation for the manufacturing industry and of continued development of the POLARIXPARTNER brand by increasing its presence in new media; work on studies and publications will be continued intensively in the new fiscal year.
Product costs optimisation was high on the list of projects clients commissioned in the last year, as was support in steering and auditing high-complexity development programmes. POLARIXPARTNER was successful in acquiring clients in Germany’s European neighbours and further afield on a global level, with a significant proportion of revenue coming out of Japan, among others.
The POLARIXPARTNER GmbH team has no shortage of plans for 2013/2014, as Markus Wildenstein explains: “Despite the difficult market conditions, we expect that we will be able to book another increase in revenue and to further grow our staff.”
