From the Journal-Sentinel online:
Actuant…. its former name, Applied Power, is an assortment of industrial companies that are leaders in distinct markets.
I never heard of Actuant nor Applied Power….though at sales of $1.4B….Actuant is a good size company….located in Menomonee Falls, WI
The key point that I see in the J-S story is the positioning of the business for the future by identifying these four trends:
- Food and farm products
- Sustainables, renewables and natural resources.
Good business leaders/managers are always looking forward.
