Dear Friend,
This year has turned out to be another challenging one for businesses all over the world. Several surprises have hit the already weakened global economy: Higher-than-expected inflation, especially in the US and major European economies, tightened financial conditions, and rising interest rates. Russia is experiencing a considerable downturn due to the now 7-month war in Ukraine while China is starting to see a serious decline, largely due to its "Zero COVID" policy. All while supply chains around the globe are more volatile than ever before. 

Despite those challenges, businesses can remain surprisingly strong and profitable with the right adjustments and investments. Now is the time to evaluate the competitiveness of your company, and to strategically invest in the future with focus on continuous improvement, process optimization and operation excellence in all areas.

2022 has been a year of unprecedented investments for ALTIX as well. We established new offices in Italy and Germany, and we recently celebrated the grand opening of our ALTIX International Headquarters, home to two additional recent investments: the ALTIX Academy and ALTIX IMHub. These investments not only mark milestones for ALTIX, but they are a testament to our continued commitment to provide best-in-class support to middle market Industry Champions worldwide.
As you can see, this has been a quite a year for ALTIX, and an action-packed summer!
And with that, I wish you all the very best for a strong Q4/2022 and fantastic year-end run!

Yannick Schilly
President & CEO
ALTIX International Headquarters
Grand Opening
On September 27th 2022, we celebrated a major milestone in the history of ALTIX: The official Grand Opening of our International Headquarters in Mason, OH.

We shared this special day with the ALTIX team, community representatives, and many industry leaders we are honored to call our clients, our partners, and our friends. The festivities included a ribbon-cutting ceremony, followed by a champagne toast, a special book signing by our partner and published author Liam Cassidy, and a tour of the 10,000 SF building which houses the ALTIX headquarters, the ALTIX IMHub, and the ALTIX Academy

A great big THANK YOU to all who joined us in our celebration and a special thank you to the City of Mason, Mayor Barbara Spaeth and her leadership team for joining us and for their support from the very beginning of ALTIX. Click here for photos of the event.

IMTS Chicago, September 17-20, 2022
ALTIX Partners Eugenio Venturato and Anne Cappel visited the IMTS 2022 (International Manufacturing Technology Show) in Chicago in September, which featured more than 129,000 participants this year.

They met close to 50 Italian companies - most of them small and middle market technology firms who are seeking to grow their business and client base in North America.

ALTIX supports numerous Italian companies to expand their presence and operations in the USA, with native Italian experts located in Italy and in the USA.
Altix 2022 Europe Tour
This summer, ALTIX founders Anne Cappel and Yannick Schilly were finally able to resume their long-overdue travel to Europe. Anne participated in a business delegation trip to Italy, organized by the European American Chamber of Commerce, where she joined 12 business leaders from Greater Cincinnati to promote the region to Italian companies seeking to enter the US market and to lay the groundwork to launch an EACC chapter in Milan. The week-long mission combined a robust business program meeting with Italian organizations and business partners in Milan, Modena, and Florence, as well as site visits in Venice and Sienna.

Yannick joined Anne and ALTIX Italy partner Paolo Arosio for another full week in Italy where they visited ALTIX customers in Turin, Milan, Verona, and Vicenza. They then spent a week in Germany, visiting Nuremberg, Stuttgart and the Lake Constance Region, and from there continued to Paris, France and Barcelona, Spain.

ALTIX serves middle-market industry champions seamlessly across continents and time zones with multi-culture and multi-language in-country experts. To help support our customers seamlessly across borders, ALTIX added two new European subsidiaries to its existing ALTIX SA in France: ALTIX AG in Germany and ALTIX S.p.A. in Italy. Stay tuned for further developments in Europe.
