LÖBICHAU, GERMANY - Newsaktuell - 17 June 2021 - After a top management meeting, Saxon eTruck builder and retrofitter Framo reaffirms its role as a specialized industry shaper: "We will increase investment volume by 5 million euros before the end of the current fiscal year, with another 10 million euros to follow as early as 2022," says Majed Al-Askar, principal shareholder and investor in Framo GmbH. "We will continue to play a key role in shaping the market for emission-free heavy-duty transport."
New perspectives after change in management
"In the past and with the previous management, unfortunately, not everything went consistently smooth," says Al-Askar. "But with new management, we have put Framo GmbH back on track. Above all, this is a team effort: we have replaced crucial positions in the management and gained an important employee in CMO and CBDO Serhat Yilmaz."
Framo accepts responsibility, good news for customers and partners
The large-scale investments are to be used in the areas of research, development and production. "We will position ourselves more broadly overall," reveals Serhat Yilmaz. "Delivery times will now be further shortened, the expansion and conversion of electric vehicles in the heavy-duty sector will be accelerated, and their range will be improved. New priorities are being set, particularly in the area of battery research and fuel cell technology."
