Our short review of the year 2009

The entire last year was dominated by high uncertainty regarding the further economic development. We are sure that there isn`t anybody who knew how it is going on. Is it still getting worse or could one say that we only had to pay for it with a drop in sales which is still acceptable?

Our motto in this hard time was to see the crisis as a real chance to pursue and to reach our goals more than ever. We particularly focused on enlarging our range of products, on optimizing our customer service and on making R+M / Suttner better known on the world market. We promise that we did not even think of burying our heads in the sand once.

We succeeded in finishing the year 2009 with only a slight decline in sales in comparison with the previous year. In the course of the last months we noticed that the situation slowly eases and stabilizes. This fact makes us happy so that we are expecting the further development with high optimism.

You never had to promise to stick by us through thick and thin - the more pleasing is the fact for us that you have chosen R+M / Suttner as your partner also in economically uncertain times. We would like to thank you very much for having every confidence in us at any time.

Rely on R+M / Suttner - your strong and safe partner for your future!

Our trainees are the experienced skilled worker of tomorrow

02 ST-29 Cool & Compact - stainless steel lances in ergonomic wave design!

The Cool & Compact lances offered to you in our range have so far been made out of zinc plated steel. Due to the fact that there is a strong demand regarding the ergonomic wave design of the ST-28 we decided to offer you an additional version made out of stainless steel. For sure, you will be very satisfied with the result - it is called the ST-29! The stainless steel lances made out of AISI 304 / 1.4301 equipped with a rolled 1/4" male thread are available from today. You are invited to learn more…

The insulated grip is made out of expanded polypropylene (PP). The expansion improves the grade of insulation and reduces the weight. We guarantee you that you enjoy having the ergonomically moulded grip in your hands as cleaning is also definitely less strenuous. Our recommendation is to simply test this new product as it is an experience which is really worthwhile.

The advantages are obvious: As above-mentioned the ST-29 has optimal thermal insulation values. That is to say that extreme heat is not passed on to the user. By means of this the possibility of burns is ruled out. Due to the fact that the surface of the insulated grip is closed the lance is very rugged. It is not susceptible to breakage at all even if it is once dumped down accidently. Moreover, the lance is insensitive to dirt.

The ST-29 Cool & Compact lances are available in the following lengths: 500, 600, 700, 900 and 1200 mm. They are designed for max. 400 bar and max. 150 °C.

05 Have you already known?

...that the spray gun assembly at Suttner has been restructured and optimized.

The spray gun assembly at Suttner has been executed in an automated way since July 2009. We can tell you that this costly investment had to be well-planned. Afterwards, we are proud of having decided to take this step as we do not want to forego all advantages both for you as our customer and for us today.

The production capacity of the automated spray gun assembly is now max. 2,500 spray guns per day and everything from small lot sizes to mass-production can be realized. We are able to respond more flexibly to your requirements and to adapt processes faster to align to market changes. Furthermore, we succeeded in increasing enormously our process safety and in eliminating several sources of error. The reject rates are lower than one percent.

Today we know that the restructuring of our spray gun assembly was a very important step into the right direction. By means of this the production location Leopoldshöhe / Germany could be saved for R+M / Suttner. We are glad about this fact as it really shows that it was the right decision. Moreover, we achieved to create ergonomic workplaces and increased significantly the safety at work in our company. We also benefit from an enormous reduction of absence.

You really see that we make every effort to be in the best possible position all the time in order to guarantee that we are a strong and safe partner of yours. Please keep in mind that you should always be the first who profit from our way of doing business.

We are looking forward to going with you into the future.
