Year in review mood image

2020 in motion –

highlights of a year that moved us all

2020 has been quite a ride – join us as we review the journey

No matter what the future brings, we are always looking forward, planning for the road ahead, anticipating game-changing trends and leading the way with groundbreaking technologies. This year was different. It forced us all to stand still and to focus on the present. Every journey has its ups and downs and 2020 reminded us that we should always expect the unexpected. However, it also showed that science, research, technological advancements and international collaboration can help us tackle even an unforeseen crisis. The same values that have driven our work for almost 150 years have also helped us weather the storm, turn challenges into opportunities and emerge from a difficult year even more determined to keep the future in motion.

This year, it motivated us to respond to the immediate needs of our customers, but also to the requirements of our society and the global community in a worldwide crisis.
