Right from the start
We are proud of what we have achieved. A success story made in Osnabrück. How did we achieve this? See for yourself.
What sets us apart from others? Quite a lot:
- Where others pitch their machines, we listen first, because that is valuable
- Where others sell standardised solutions, we develop solutions tailored to your customer benefits and needs
- Where others objectify technological progress, we combine progress with emotions (FIRE & ICE) and entertainment (spinning machine blog)
- Where others only optimise the performance features of the spinning machine, we also think about the fingertip feeling of the machine operator (Force Feedback)
- Where others leave the customer alone with the machine, we act holistically and thus ensure maximum customer benefit and satisfaction (software and training offers for optimum machine utilisation)
The good feeling from day one
Why we are the best partner for you:
We start by listening to you. Sounds banal, but it's not. Then we create the right solution for you. That's how we make you and ourselves happy. With the right plan, which our design department then fills with life, we work purposefully and efficiently in machine production. We are your partner throughout the entire process. With Abacus, you have the feeling that you have made the right decision every day from the moment you place your order.
Efficiency that makes the difference
Why can you rely on us?
Quality has its price. It is your trust and your money that you place in our hands. We handle it with care. You have a request - our response time will delight you. You expect effective progress - our cross-team approach will delight you. Your expectations are not off the shelf - our flexibility is a real game changer. You want to get the best out of the machine - our software and training make it possible. You can trust us. We know what we're doing.
What our customers saying:
"We were looking for a partner that combines engineering craftsmanship with its smart software. We found both with Abacus."
Jan Schneider, Managing Director of HELMUT HEBISCH, Sheet Metal & Metalworking
"Reliability is the most important thing for us when working with other companies. We had a good feeling about Abacus right from the start - and we weren't disappointed."
Andrea Courth, Managing Director of Schnabel Metalldrücktechnik
"We had an idea of what machine we needed, but nothing more. Thanks to Abacus, the idea became reality. And just as we had imagined."
Tharsen Rajaratnam, Head of work scheduling, Heggli & Gubler AG
