INNOWWIDE intended to bring European highly innovative SMEs to the forefront of international markets by allowing them to conduct Viability Assessment Projects (VAPs) in cooperation with local stakeholders. It was implemented with a total budget of 7,2M€, allowing to fund 120 VAPs (60k€/VAP). CSF-Electric Kft. applied with a unique user-friendly, easy to install, versatile PLC control, which can use BAR codes for product tracking and updating warehouse inventory also.

Thankfully, we were chosen to make this new system. Thus, in the designing, implementation and testing phases we kept very close contact with our partner in Canada, the Canadian Down and Feather Company. Thanks to our good relationship and constant meetings we were able to reach every single goal we set in the beginning. These are the following steps we have made regarding strategic, technical, commercial objectives and product-market development at national and international scale. CSF has uploaded videos on YouTube – on the comment section questions can be asked about the system and we have marked our contact information also on the video description. We have uploaded pictures about the design and implementation of the system on the official CSF-Electric Kft. Facebook, google+, Instagram and Twitter.

We made an agreement with CDFC (Canadain Down and Feather Company) that they will invite and welcome potential companies – mainly from Canada and USA -. We made a list of textile industry companies – mainly focusing on feather and down processing and filling companies – These companies are being contacted continuously and thankfully we have made deal with a few already. We are members of the IDFB (International Down and Feather Bureau) and EDFA (European Down and Feather Association) – where the biggest feather industry companies can be found. CSF has been visiting Heimtextil trade fair for years and for the very first time we were finally exhibitors in 2020 – this is the biggest annual trade fair show in the world. Mr. Hermann Pfrommer (former LORCH CEO, LORCH used to be the biggest feather and down processing and filling machine manufacturer in the world) is advertising us non-stop to his partners and we have had more than 60 projects together. Naturally, we keep looking for new ideas, possibilities and partners.
