Weinig boosting activities in USA and Russia

07.12.2018 − 

Weinig group is stepping up its activities on the markets in the USA and Russia. The US companies Michael Weinig and Holz-Her are opening an additional facility in Anaheim, California, in December. The facility has a utilisable area of almost 600 m² in which a fully-equipped expo-centre is being set up. The new centre is to be used for in-house trade shows, exhibitions, meetings, and training courses as well. The premises also accommodate offices, a service centre, and spare-parts warehouse. According to Jason Howell, president of the two Weinig subsidiaries in the USA, the purpose of the new facility is to provide sales support and to further optimise the standard of service in the west of the country.

During the course of this year, sales and distribution tasks have been added to the activities of the Weinig RUS, previously geared mainly to the provision of services. Since Maxim Prituzhalov joined the company on 15 May, local sales operations are being developed and new personnel recruited alongside the service functions. The first member of the sales staff had already been in action at the Lesdrevmash trade fair held in Moscow from 22 to 25 October. Here, the sales coordination is performed in consultation with the CIS sales manager, Knud Dethloff, who also remains responsible for the Russian market in a superordinate capacity.
