A Message from Management: Q1 – Ready to Rise to the Challenge
A Business Update from Vice President & General Manager Michel Merkx
“As 2022 draws to a close and the warmth of Holidays is upon us, allow me to share a few reflections:
ABI and every other company in the world, worked incredibly hard dealing with the challenges of (raw) material inflation and availability impacting scheduling, inventory management and service to our customers.
Despite retraction in the automotive market, we saw continued sales growth in Graphics, B&C, Electrical and Shoe & Leather Goods, and we successfully developed new products, materials and components and improved our coating and converting assets to ensure consistent quality products to satisfy our customers.
2023 is rumored to be challenging still. I’d say, bring it on. We have focused plans, resolve, an incredible organization and awesome customers to make 2023 very successful indeed.
On behalf of the entire ABI Team, we wish you and yours Happy Holiday, a Merry Christmas, and a Healthy New Year!”
