Dear reader,

No business can exist without customers. Knowing this, we offer our deepest appreciation to our customers as Habasit­ celebrates its 50th year of operation in the United States. We have reached this meaningful milestone because you choose to depend on Habasit solutions. Your loyalty drives our longevity.

Since 1967, our mission has remained unchanged—helping customers improve their systems through problem-solving belting solutions. Over time, industries evolve, regulations change, and equipment improves, requiring an on-going demand for innovative products. These evolutions are why we continue to innovate: to solve new problems for our customers. To fulfill our mission in the future, we must continuously create new value and build stronger relationships with those who helped Habasit earn this achievement.

We are excited about the great things to come. As always, we strive to enhance our technologies, expand our capabilities, and develop the wonderful people who drive our organization. Pride in who we are and what we do inspires us each day to realize new potential for satisfying and delighting our customers. Our pride, in so many ways, is shaped by our relationships with our customers.

Improving continuously in serving our customer will be the only road to another 50 years of mutual success.

Thank you for your partnership.
