The OpalTec business strategy is always to look beyond individual economic cycles and focus on capturing long-term growth trends, even during economic downturns as severe as that of the past two years. We are constantly looking to enliven old entrenched processes with new workable ideas. Naturally, we also have the ability to make short-term adjustments that minimise the impact of the recession and allow us to capitalise on any recovery as it takes hold. That is why in late 2007, as markets were coming off their peaks, we took the decision to begin making difficult but necessary cuts in overheads and staff levels. As a result of our forward thinking OpalTec has weathered this most recent market downturn better than most companies.
