European Sales Conference 2013
The Mosel recently played host to the Gantry Railing 2013 Sales Conference, with a 2 day event at Erden, a beautiful municipality situated on Mosel’s right bank.
Bringing together distributors and partners from across Europe, the conference was a superb platform to launch new technical developments and ensure the continued sharing of best practice and sales support.
Speaking of the event Malcolm Trigg, Managing Director said “It was a super conference and I would like to extend my thanks to all who came along and took part. I would especially like to thank Rebecca Lloyd of Union Railtrack who travelled from Australia to meet with the European representatives. Whilst we have systems in place to maintain constant dialogue with our partners across the globe, nothing beats face to face interaction and the value that this delivers.
It was also my pleasure to introduce Jon Sojo Arana of Auxema Stemmann to the conference as our new partner in cable trench cover systems. Jon gave an outstanding presentation which everyone felt to be invaluable.”
