A fire broke out on July 22 in the factory of Erich Rohde in the German town of Schwalmstadt, which handles product development, but only the building was damaged. No one was injured. Estimating the damages at around €20,000, Harald Neisser, the recently appointed chief executive of Rohde, assured us that the accident will not cause any bottlenecks in the supply chain. The new management of the company has made it a priority to ensure more timely deliveries to customers, adjusting the whole product development and manufacturing cycle accordingly.
