“The growth targets we want to achieve by 2022 are ambitious. The expansion of our automation and engineering activities will play a major role in this. That is why we will focus on these two global service lines in the new Global Automation & Engineering Business Unit. We expect great opportunities for growth worldwide in these areas, both organically and through acquisitions,” Markus Glaser-Gallion, CEO of the Leadec Group, explains.
