In recent years, Kugellager-Express has taken some groundbreaking steps that have had a positive impact on sales growth. The increase in storage capacity in 2014 ensured even faster availability of our items. The online shop, which was redesigned in 2015, is constantly being further developed in order to offer our customers the best possible shopping experience at all times. The following year, we were represented for the first time at a major trade fair with our special logistics solutions. There we also presented our newly added precision bearing products. Another milestone was the introduction of a new ERP system and a complete relaunch of the online shop in 2017. In the same year, the company's own test laboratory with a Babtec CAQ System was introduced and put into operation. Thus we are capable to run independent tests and test methods to verify the high quality standards that we have set for our products. With the apuriement of an optical coordinate measuring system in 2020, another cutting edge measuring method is available to ensure product dimensions.
Since the expansion of our product descriptions in 2018, our customers are provided with more extensive information on the products in our rolling bearing range. In 2019 we expanded our testing laboratory by purchasing a lifetime test bench and systems for mearuring moise and vibration development.
We thank you for the trust you have placed in us. The award encourages us in our intention to take effective measures in the future, with which we can guarantee the satisfaction of our customers.
