December arrives and it is time to take stock of the year and we want to assess the work and the objectives achieved by the 2015. A year that has witnessed the growth of the company, both nationally and internationally. We have reinforced our presence in Europe. We have a commercial agent in Germany and France, who is doing to grow the company in a key market. Total Planning has strengthened relations with international companies, allowing it to continue that development and consolidate the brand abroad.
In the same way, in this month of November. Total Planning has been accepted in the international promotion program ICEX NEXT, with which we hope to continue growing in export.
Proof of this are the different actions in which the company has been immersed in this 2015. Last April took place the visit to California to visit the factory of Haas Automation in Oxnard. In may, the company also participated in Subcontracting, the International Fair and equipment in Bilbao, a meeting with national and international buyers. Likewise, last November we attended the first International Meeting of buyers in Madrid, that served as a meeting point for companies and purchase managers to promote that exterior projection.
In addition, Total Planning remains a reference in terms of the reliability and security of their processes, and therefore this last September were renovated quality certificates for the UNE-EN ISO 9001:2008 and the Norm Aeronautics EN 9100:2009.
In this 2015, the company has been involved in new and important projects as the agreement signed with the School of Industrial Engineering of Barcelona (ETSEIB) for the development of a racing car which was presented last July. In addition, Total Planning has joined from this year the Club of Young Entrepreneurs (JEC) to exchange knowledge and experiences in the business world.
2015 has been a year of growth in all directions. Therefore, the staff has expanded and the machinery park as well, with the launch of a new 5 axis machine, Haas model UMC 750. Currently, we have 4 CN lathes and 8 CNC machining centers (3 of them with 5 axis). The entry of a new machine of 3 axis for the year 2016 is planned.
On the other hand, remember that this month of December we close only bank holidays, in order to fulfil delivery dates agreed with our customers.
