As an owner of a company, Tanja Schröder (a sheet metal processor) believes that courage is essential, because "if you are afraid of making decisions, nothing changes". Her readiness to fearlessly look ahead has allowed her to direct her family company out of crisis.
Beer Metallbau has existed for around 50 years. For its owner, Tanja Schröder, the breaking point came in 2012; business was becoming increasingly worse, and she saw an acute need for action. Production was simply not fast or flexible enough to attract a sufficient amount of orders. She recognised that not making a bold investment now would mean that the company would cease to operate sooner or later – and she decided very spontaneously to invest in a pre-used laser cutting machine by TRUMPF. "I think I'm going to buy a laser," she decided in the run-up to a trade show visit – and put her intention directly into practice in the form of a TRUMPF pre-owned machine.
