igus keeps moving

igus Inc., East Providence, R.I., a leading manufacturer of Energy Chains and polymer plain bearings, is continuing to grow. Despite difficult market conditions in 2012, igus managed to increase sales by 5 percent. Within the context of a long-term investment program, significant capital will be directed at new product divisions, the expansion of existing product lines as well as global logistics and production, according to the company.

In 2012, igus supplied products to more than 175,000 customers all over the world and was able to ship more than 4,200 shipments in average per day from its 13 global dispatch centers. The ReadyChain division – pre-harnessed Energy Chains and igus continuous-flex Chainflex cables – shipped 341,000 pre-harnessed cable systems. igus is expecting additional growth from new product groups including semi-finished goods, ball bearings, spindle drives, electric actuators, and on-site assembly programs. Each product is now developed and marketed in separate business divisions with additional staff, space and production facilities. The number of employees increased last year to a total of 2,175, a 7 percent increase.
