Janus Perspective: Böllhoff 09 February 2024

Welcome to the 2024 Janus Perspective, a unique feature that includes a wide cross section of global fastener business leaders. Named after the Roman God 'Janus' – who had the ability to look to the future and to the past, and was often depicted with having two faces – this feature brings together thought leaders from every facet of the industry, from around the world, to give us their retrospective on 2023, as well as prospects and challenges for 2024.

Wilhelm A. Böllhoff, co-CEO

Back to reality? There have been many years of too many exceptional situations – Covid-19, war in Europe, broken supply chains, rising focus on patriotism and too high inflation. At the end of these new realities, every company had to analyse its experiences and SWOT to determine the future.

We at Böllhoff Group managed to ride these waves of challenges relatively well. However, what about tomorrow and the future? We believe that every situation has its opportunities. 

This is why we will focus in 2024 on our mission to offer our customers the ’Böllhoff 360 degree product and service experience’ –
which is available across five continents thanks to the group’s 35 regional subsidiaries and 3,400 passionate and competent employees. By doing this, hopefully supported by a not too bad market environment, we shall reach our customers’ expectations and our individual goals as a business.
