The EJOT magazine
the planning for the topics of this magazine is medium to long-term. We consider which information from our group could be of interest to our stakeholders. For this issue we came up with the mega topic “digitalization”. Digitalization concerns each and every one of us, employees, customers, suppliers and our whole environment. We wanted to use a few examples to show how the topic affects us. We describe the path we have taken and begin with an introduction by Karl-Heinz Land, who accompanied us with his digital and strategy consulting service “neuland”. Further interesting topics are featured, which we expect will have a positive impact on our performance and our business.
Digitalization is often associated with the adjective “disruptive”. That is certainly appropriate, but comparatively less direct and fast, as we are currently experiencing in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. An integral part of this edition is the report on the past business year, in this case 2019. In our management report we have mentioned the new virus and how we are uncertain about its further course and the economic consequences. The current situation and the assessment of the consequences change from one day to the next. The automotive industry, one of our largest customer groups, is now at a standstill in Europe and America, and is restarting again in China. That describes a mega-disruption of our industrial societies. We don’t know yet, exactly what to expect. But it is foreseeable that many things will be different once this crisis is over. The EJOT Group stands on two legs, is solidly financed and offers products and services that bring benefits to our customers.
That is what counts now.
