Case studies – Technical reconditioning

Excellence in restoring value

When Sumida AG in Obernzell, Germany, suffered damage to their production plant after severe local flooding, they contacted Polygon’s technical reconditioning centre in Olpe. Polygon was well equipped to help them resume their operations in as little as five weeks.

Sumida develops and manufactures components and complete systems for industrial and consumer electronics. When water wrecked havoc on their facilities, Polygon sent a task force of 170 technicians plus a number of sub-suppliers to begin the job of restoring both the machinery and the building to pre-incident condition. Tools, electronic components, presses and an oven were restored on site to avoid time-consuming transport. Polygon’s rapid response and restoration time meant that the impact on Sumida’s business was minimal under the circumstances.
