With the technology of laser cutting, he was immediately proven right. This modern form of metalworking became a great success.

Redesign and assembly were added to the company's activities. In addition, the company initiated Product Engineering activities, which allowed INNO to be both a manufacturer and an inventor.

INNO decided to move its assembly activities to a separate company - INNO-assembly B.V. was founded. The construction, assembly and testing of subassemblies became a fixed part of the company's business operations, which meant the company was one step closer to the production of complete, sophisticated units.
