Ford (NYSE:F) just reported its best third quarter ever, reflecting a major turn around in the auto industry. Can you tell us what you are seeing at your level of the auto industry in terms of the recovery?
A: CEO, Chuck
With both our headquarters and manufacturing facility located here in Michigan at ground zero, we have, what we believe a very intimate insight into the recovery. While the past few years have been extremely difficult for many suppliers servicing the automotive industry, those who were able to dynamically adjust to the changing market conditions and refocus their market strategy, are still around. While many of them still are still in recovery mode, hey are seeing business improve, more rapidly over the last half year. MWW's cability to shift our customer concentration from basically one large client to several new ones, even in different industry sectors, is the main reason MWW is experiencing now successes with its turnaround and is witnessing first hand improved business and new and solid growth opportunity for the future.
In my opinion this has also been driven by the resurgence of domestic brands. While Hyundai, Kia , Toyota and other imported brands remain very strong, you will see that Ford and Chevrolet have done a tremendous job of reintroducing themselves to the US and world markets with choices like the F-150, Fusion and Malibu to name a few. Sales numbers and cars encountered daily on the road don ' t lie.
Where do you see your biggest future growth opportunities?
A: CEO, Chuck Pinkerton
One word Diversification. While the Automotive is not only our Core Competency but also our life line to growth and success we, are aggressively pursuing the Industrial, Agricultural and Energy Marketplaces to accelerate our growth. In addition we will consider select additional suitable acquisition in our markets to accelerate our growth even further.
As the industry becomes more global, do you see a shift in consumer demand for customization?
A: CEO, Chuck Pinkerton
I see customization demands increasing. We are currently servicing not only North America but also Europe and Asia. The global headquarters of ournsingle largest cleintnat this time is located in Austria and services the European and the US market . The automotive industry has become a very small world.
In closing, what are some key points in your Company investors should take note of moving forward?
A: Rainer Poertner, Business Development
MWW has overcome several significant set-backs and subsequent drop in revenue and share price by completely restructuring its management team, streamlining production and aggressively securing new customers; not only in the automotive, but also in the commercial and agricultural industries. Our new CEO, Chuck Pinkerton has been very successful in securing new business and putting the company back on the path of increasing revenue and returning to profits. So why should you invest into MWW now.
