Uster plans to further develop its business and expand into new markets. “We will pay even closer attention to our customers’ needs and focus on customer-oriented services and innovative technologies,” said Geoffrey Scott, CEO.

The company is looking towards Asia, which represents 60 percent of its export market, to expand with new product lines to provide quality solutions for the textile industry. Adjacent market areas also will be targeted.
