Every year, the (business) world gets a little bit faster – and so a little bit smaller. In sales, too, modern communication channels and high-performance infrastructure have been making a fixed time or place less important. We experience this ourselves every time that a face-to-face meeting is replaced with a video conference call or online chat.
Alongside these cutting-edge tools for communication, WEBER Schraubautomaten GmbH continues to appreciate the value of regular get-togethers with its international sales partners at its head office in Wolfratshausen. Once a year, invitations are therefore sent out to the respective partner companies. In 2019, the three-day event was attended by colleagues from partner companies in China, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, and the UK.
Apart from time for valuable discussion and knowledge sharing, this year’s event also focused on analyzing the results of the 2018/2019 financial year – which once again proved highly satisfactory for WEBER and the international sales teams in particular. And these forecast-beating figures were due in no small part to progress in the internationalization of business plus technological innovations like the new SEV-C HRC spindle – which marks the further expansion of WEBER’s leading position as a global developer and manufacturer of screwdriving systems. WEBER is also setting the standards to follow in key future technologies like human-robot collaboration.
Dirk Winter, Head of Sales at WEBER: “We’ve maintained close relationships with our sales colleagues all over the world for many years now. Our get-togethers are motivational while also bringing together a wealth of experience and expertise. In this sense, we get the best-possible starting point for planning and realizing upcoming development work and new projects. In terms of global business, innovation and technological know-how are at least as important to us at WEBER as personal contact and continuous, proactive communication.”
