SVP supports international companies as they enter the German, Austrian and Swiss markets. We have tremendous sector-specific expertise when it comes to market or location analyses, as well as identifying clients or business partners in the DACH region. Mechanical and systems engineering has traditionally been heavily export orientated in Germany. As such, long-term strategic planning can quickly be overtaken by geopolitical and economic developments. Issues like energy, industry 4.0 or automated or flexible manufacturing processes are just some of the important topics in the industry. Like in nearly every other industrial product sectors, mechanical and systems engineering is in a state of upheaval.
The movement towards application-specific solutions will continue within the sector, which is why advancing and innovating products and systems solutions will be critical to a company’s success, as well as other aspects like finding the right business and service models especially in the face of increasing digitisation throughout the industry.

Is diversifying my product range worthwhile, and what new target customers could my product appeal to? Should we look to enter the German, Austrian or Swiss market? These are just some of the questions SVP can help you answer.

And because a company’s individual goals are always different, customer-specific analyses are needed. SVP can offer years of experience and expertise in preparing these analyses, be it for a particular region or for the entire world. The analyses can cover common approaches or creative strategies that are anything but run of the mill.
