The courage to change
It’s obvious immediately. A brand-new 5-axis Zimmermann FZ33 CNC gantry milling machine has been set up in the Formbar AG machinery building, 30 kilometers northeast of Zürich. Any company deciding to purchase a machine like this has to have a great deal of courage and clear goals. Like Kaspar Hürlimann, for instance. The managing director of Formbar AG is a judicious man who knows exactly what he's doing.
This company in Kirchdorf, Switzerland, was founded in 1911 and has been operated as a family business for three generations. During this time, it has developed from a manually intensive sawmill to a modern model and mold manufacturer based entirely on computer-supported systems. And yet: Four years ago, the future of this traditional company, which was then known as Keller Modell- und Formenbau AG, was very uncertain. Revenues were not developing as expected. Fortunately, the investors recognized that the company had far more potential. With its highly trained employees and exceptional equipment, it actually had the perfect basis for a successful future.
So the investors started searching for a new managing director. The ideal candidate was a partner with an entrepreneurial spirit who also exactly understood the practical side of model and mold manufacturing.
