OBS System Certification informs


Dear Readers, 

First of all, I would like to wish you all a happy and healthy new year 2019. A lot has happened in the last few months. We have acquired some high-profile new customers, developed new services and pushed international integration further. And the first figures for the expired year 2018 also look good: Our turnover rose from 108.2 million Euros in 2017 to 114.4 million Euros in 2018. At almost 11 percent, our profit margin is one percent better than planned and almost two percent better than in the previous year. I would like to thank you all for your contribution to this. Because only together can we continue to grow our OBS. I look forward to a successful new year with you!

Wolfgang Wielpütz
