WEMO has been designing, building, selling and maintaining fast and flexible production lines for the processing of sheet metal in the Russian market for more than 18 years now. This is done from their office and production facility in the Netherlands. Since July 2014, demand from the Russian market has been decreasing. One of the reasons for this is the sanctions that have been imposed on Russia by the EU. The sanctions are still in force, but WEMO has recognised that the demand for typical WEMO solutions is increasing. Solutions that can deliver processing of sheet material with a high output and more flexibility within a product family. In order to identify opportunities at an early stage and speed up the current growth, WEMO is striving for an independent and proactive market approach. This means that the current agency relationship that WEMO has with Alexander Smirnov at OMT for Russia has been terminated.
