We wish you a healthy Christmas

Peace, relaxation and strength at a distance

This year will undoubtedly go down in history. A virus has affected almost every aspect of social, economic and personal life. Many experts believe that this will leave far-reaching after-effects even after the use of a vaccine.
One thing is certain, we have a year with completely different customer contacts behind us. No live shows, presentation dates or trade fairs. That already hurts a lot. At the same time, we hope that we have taken care of you all in the right way - often digitally, by telephone, by e-mail and our customer service team is also tirelessly on site.

At this point we would like to thank you for your loyalty, your customers in turn for the strong bond to you and ASTRO and our teams, who have done a great job on the road or in the office, for your tireless and dedicated efforts.

We - from the entire ASTRO team - wish you and your families healthy and relaxing holidays and a good start for 2021.

Just like the Christ Child, we also take a short break after Christmas, in order to be freshly available for you again in the New Year. Therefore our factory will be closed from 24.12.2020 to 03.01.2021.
