Enjoy the ride
The automotive industry has seen some rough times over the past few years. Several carmakers shut down for good while others experienced extreme downsizing. With financial crises and consumers in a pinch for credit, the numbers of new cars being purchased also dropped dramatically. Though these challenges have not completely subsided, one name in Hungary is managing to come out on top. Porsche Inter Auto Hungaria Kft. has proven that growth is possible in spite of a challenging economic situation. Having taken root just after the fall of communism, the group of car dealerships has witnessed success throughout its lifetime.
A clean finish
When it comes to finishing the exterior of a building there are a number of choices available, ranging from modern wooden cladding to retro pebble dash. One of the most popular and versatile finishes used in France is render. It produces a smooth surface in a full range of different colours that is both attractive to look at and easy to maintain. Applying render is a skilled activity that should be carried out by a qualified tradesman. An expert in this area is French rendering specialist S.T.R.P. Societé Tavares Ravalement Projete SAS.
The Danube is the longest river in Hungary and flows through the entire country. With the opening of the Rhine-Main-Danube Canal in 1992, more and more ships from Germany and the Netherlands came to pass the Danube, and the Hungarian ocean and inland shipping companies have faced increasing competition ever since. Trafalger Kft., based in Budapest, has been operating in the competitive market since 1994 and found a way to win customers, convincing them with flexibility, reliability and the ability to adapt its services to the requirements of the market.
Bigger ships - bigger equipment
Container vessels are getting bigger and bigger. The largest can load more than 19,000 Twenty-foot Equivalent Units (TEU). The deck equipment, therefore, has to keep pace with this development. Towimor SA is following the trend towards bigger ships very closely. The Polish company is constantly adapting its products – deck cranes, cable lifters, mooring winches and many other high-tech devices – to growing demands and has thus developed into one of the leading global players in maritime and offshore solutions.
Not many people have the chance to make their lifetime dream come true. Of course, you need a good dose of luck, but even more important is never to lose sight of your dream and to work on its realization with dedication and enthusiasm. Elisabetta Gnudi did exactly this.

Her vineyards are recognized for top wines such as Brunello, Rosso di Montalcino, Chianti Classico and Chianti Classico Riserva.
Sign of the times
The urban landscape has a unique visual language that is expressed through street signs and functional street furniture. Each country has its own specific signing language in which fonts, colours and symbols provide a grammatical framework that everyone can recognise and understand. Within the constraints of this language there is still room for individual creativity and, like any language, signing is constantly evolving and changing. One of the leading interpreters of this language is HR Groep B.V. in the Netherlands.

The race for fiber-optic broadband
In the race to expand high-speed broadband coverage across Europe, the starting gun on another race has been fired: the race to dominate the market. As with all such races, those who get over the starting line ahead of the pack tend to do best. High-speed connectivity specialist CELESTE SAS in France is currently growing at an annual rate of 30%.

A prime example for such a corporation is Houghton International. The US-based Group is the world’s leading metalworking fluids supplier and has facilities on six continents. Its specialty chemicals, oils and lubricants help customers worldwide improve their manufacturing efficiency and reduce their operating costs.
Website creation and management
It’s hard to imagine a time when not everyone had their own website, just as it’s hard to imagine that there might be anyone now without one. The success of the Internet is such that it is the fi rst place to look for information about virtually everything. What is even more astonishing is how quickly this transformation has taken place. In little more than 20 years, everything about the way people and companies present themselves to the world has changed. The other amazing thing about the Internet is that it continues to evolve. One company that has the Internet to thank for its ongoing success is the Czech web and mobile application development expert Etnetera, a.s.
Moving people since 1930
The European Union, the European Court of Justice, the Secretariat of the European Parliament and the European Investment Bank all have their seats in the city of Luxembourg, and many politically and economically important people travel to the capital of the country with the same name. For this reason, the quality of transportation, especially in the taxi sector, has to be very high. Taxis Colux S.àr.l. has been conveying people in its taxicabs since 1930 and is the leading taxi company in Luxembourg. With good service, premium cars and constant reliability, Taxis Colux has become the partner of choice when it comes to the transportation of its customers in Luxembourg.
A follower in the best sense
Following the customer abroad is a well-tested strategy, especially in the manufacturing sector. A good example is provided by the white goods industry, which moved its production more and more to the east in the last decade. The Italian Europlastica Group, a major supplier of injection moulded parts to this industry, therefore decided to set up its own plant in Poland ten years ago: EPP Sp. z o. o. Since then, the company has developed into a leading Polish plastics processor with growing international ambitions.
