At the beginning of June an International Sales Meeting took place at SKS Germany, the well-known bicycle-accessories-manufacturer. During the interesting program the guests had the possibility to get to know the family owned company better and were able to have a first look at the exclusive new products.
On 10th and 11th of June nearly 30 guests from more than 10 countries visited SKS Germany in Sundern. The reason was an International Sales Meeting the medium-sized company had invited its distributors to. In addition to the colleagues from the SKS subsidiary in the USA also customers from Russia, Hungary, Finland, England and Poland came.
The meeting allowed the participants to have a look behind the scenes of the well-established company and they were able to experience the development, production and shipping of the premium products at first hand. “We are proud of our tradition and our roots in the Sauerland-Region. In addition to our experience, our passion for innovative design and high quality are the basis for successful relationships to our customers also in the future.” CEO Michael Beste emphasized at the beginning of the meeting. It started in the Orange World, which is a former production hall and was rebuilt to a center of communication, training and presentation in the heart of the plant. Besides to the many SKS-Products also the history of the company is presented there.
During a guided tour of the plant the international guests had the possibility to have a closer look at the “Made in Germany”-production. They got an insight in all production and development departments and through it able to get to know the products much more detailed. Another highlight was the presentation of the forthcoming numerous new products.
Nevertheless, the focus of the whole meeting was the communication and the get-together. “The personal contact to our customers is very important for us.” said SKS-sales manager Marcel Spork. “Moreover, we are always interested in the opinion on our products of our customers and are open for ideas and wishes, but also for criticism of course.”
In the end of the interesting and informative days the visitors were invited to become active and assemble the SKS-mini-pump INJEX T-ZOOM from pieces on their own. With the help of the SKS Germany-team everyone had a working pump and a nice souvenir after a half hour of puzzling.
