Together they serve several important international markets and continuously work to expand their technological advantage."

"... By joining EoL, we will be part of a strong international group to reinforce our technological leadership. I see EoL as the right organization to successfully ensure the future of Standard-Knapp in the long-term. At the same time, it will help us to deliver more value to our customers.”
