Record number of participants at the Agent Meeting
The worldwide L.B. Bohle sales team meets every three years in spring for a two-day workshop in Ennigerloh. The process engineers from the Service Center and Technology Center as well as the area sales managers informed the more than 60 participants about the latest innovations and technical advancements.
"We have introduced many new products and features, especially in the last three years. Starting with the QbCon® continuous technology, through to the BCG twin screw granulator to the new HS 1000 SL lifting column and the b.sure® monitoring app," managing director Tim Remmert lists the innovations. "For this reason, it is essential that our agents are brought up to date with the latest knowledge about our technologies," says Remmert, explaining the importance of the agent meeting.
Tight programme in theory and practice
The two-day meeting focused on demonstrations and lectures on the extensive product range for batch and continuous processes. "We have high-tech products that need explaining. Our agents need to understand the technology so they can communicate its USP," continues Tim Remmert. "It is also extremely important for the agents to be able to talk to each other and share experiences."
Sales growth thanks to larger network
L.B. Bohle's global network of agents also grew as part of globalisation and the worldwide interdependence of business and production processes. Customers can now find professional contacts on all continents who provide information about the product portfolio and support them during the project phase.
"I can still remember the first few years when we welcomed ten agents here. Now it's over 60!", says Lorenz Bohle, Chairman of the Advisory Board, proudly looking at the company's development. "This is a clear sign that we have developed from a niche manufacturer of special machinery to a globally recognised brand as a supplier to the largest corporations in the pharmaceutical industry."
