3 06 Masa Management Integration of Customer Experience We have worked hard to transform Masa from a small business machinery company to a premier global provider. There is pride in that achievement. But we also know that this success was only possible because we stayed loyal to the principles of our company: Reliable technology engineered in, First class quality, and a Business partnership with our customers. Personal experience has shown me the importance of the customer viewpoint and that we must put customer requirements first to allow success for our own company. This begins with the initial small steps which must then continue throughout all of our company s operations. More than anything else, Masa s worldwide success is dependent on delivering individualized customized installation concepts to our customers. One could say that this customer centric focus is now the core of our product philosophy. This is what defines true service. An experienced team, a powerful organisation and a good proportion of perfectionism are required to develop the solutions expected by our customers. Maybe the most important factor is our ability to listen to customers. Wolfgang Abreß Chairman of the Supervisory Board Masa GmbH Michael Dolon Head of Process Technology
4 Michael Dolon: State of the art production plants are created by high levels of automation, resulting in high productivity. Creative and robust design concepts incorporating customers individual requirements result in mutual success. Our aim is to always incorporate the experience of our customers into the design concept. The resulting layout of the plant is therefore customer friendly whilst fulfilling their needs and including, wherever possible, standardised equipment. To meet the individual requirements of our customers and the speed at which technology is advancing, Masa has achieved solutions with the utmost flexibility using their own unique concept of visualisation, enabling simple operation of the equipment and incorporating different levels of password access and security. Safety is of paramount importance, whilst incorporating ease of operation and economical production. For each plant a safety concept is designed and agreed with the customer.
5 08 Partnership The secret of our success is the success of our customers. Plants or machinery: The experience of our customers is part of the design. Masa is the world s leading supplier and manufacturer of plants, machinery and components for the building materials industry. Our customers are companies on all continents who specialise in the production of building materials. Our name is synonymous with creative and robust design concepts, advanced technology and utmost safety. These principles are fundamental to Engineered in. As well as the quality of our products a close and cooperative exchange of ideas and experiences with our customers is decisive for our success. By means of this open dialogue we are precisely informed about the specific requirements and trends in the local markets. Based on this we are in the position to create tailor made plant configurations which match exactly the local demands. The experience confirms that such individual solutions clearly strengthen the market position of our customer clearly. From one reliable partner, we offer effective solutions starting with the initial design concept, incorporating inhouse manufacturing, on-site training and product support, including service and spare parts. Depending on customer requirements, we can supply turn-key plants, complete production lines or single plant components. Our product range is supplemented by a round the clock, worldwide service and spare parts facility with the shortest possible response times. Masa is able to look back on more than 100 years of company history. Our experience, the quality of our products and the constant dialogue with our partners have contributed to the success of our customers worldwide.

6 10 Company 11 Experience is our strength. Flexibility takes us forward. On the world market: Masa is the leading German manufacturer and supplier. 01 Masa is a family owned company with its roots in which specialises in the design and production of plants and machinery for the building materials industry. Under the Masa trade mark, production facilities in are supported by our sales companies all over the world. Our head office, with departments for development and production, is situated in Andernach, between Frankfurt/M and Cologne. A second location as well as large departments for development and production are situated in Porta Westfalica. A centre for engineering for sand lime brick plants is based in Dorsten. Furthermore subsidiaries for sales and services are established worldwide: in USA, China, Russia, India and Italy as well as Dubai, responsible for the Middle East. Throughout our long company history, we have significantly influenced many developments in the building materials industry. The experiences gained over the years in both technical and functional capacities now benefit both the customer and ourselves. As a result of globalisation on the world economy the rules have been changed. Different markets require sophisticated individual specifications. "Engineered in " is for us always an obligation for quality and solidity. But to be successful in a constantly changing world market, flexibility is needed to realise the wishes and proposals of our customers. Masa s typical combination of experience and flexibility is also relevant to the design and assembly of our plants and machinery. In the end, there are no two products alike; every single solution is based and optimised on the individual wishes of the customer Know-how in R&D: Masa combines design and production of plants and machinery from one supplier. 02. Quality management: Passion for sturdy and reliable solutions. 03. A customer oriented design concept: The experience of our customer is Masa's basis.
7 12 Product Development 13 Engineered in. This is our commitment. Quality, economic operation, operational safety. These are the fundamentals of our design concept. In practice, Masa s design principles benefit the customer with uniform quality, minimum down times and high levels of production: m³ AAC blocks / day pieces sand lime bricks / day m2 pavers / 8 hrs Masa has all the necessary experience for the production of high quality blocks, made of light or heavy weight concrete, slabs as well as sand lime bricks and aerated autoclaved blocks in high capacities. A distinct advantage for our customers is, that large turn-key plants or single components are from one supplier Masa, your partner, from design through manufacturing, assembly, commissioning, training and support during the start of your production. Our initial planning principles apply in all fields of design and manufacturing. The quality of the known technology and the exact solution give a high-quality finished product. Moreover, these most economical solutions ultimately create substantial energy savings resulting in lower longterm costs to the customer. Masa s know-how and production philosophy enable a fast and reasonable realisation of individual solutions for complete plants and production lines. Depending on the demand they are assembled by standardised components, which are combined or modified. This results in short delivery times even for the most complex new plants. The most important aspects, which are foremost in our minds when designing plants are simple handling solutions and continuity of production, whilst taking into consideration every aspect of health and safety. Construction of machines at Masa: Quality is the sum of experience and the pursuit of perfection.
