New expertise for Russian carmakers
December 2012 – This was the second time that Dürr Assembly Products and Dürr Somac had held a Customer Days event on the subject of “Leading in Production Efficiency” in Hotel Milan in Moscow. Representatives of almost all the Russian-based carmakers attended the event on 26/27 September.
Automotive production in Russia is a market with growing potential for Dürr. The demand from Russian OEMs for high-quality production equipment is rising noticeably.
The two companies used the Customer Days event to present systems from the fields of end-of-line testing and assembly and filling technology. They also provided the attendees with know-how on operating such systems and answered individual questions. Specifically with this in mind, the organizers had extended the event by half a day. The overall picture of Dürr’s range of products and services was rounded off with a presentation of Schenck RoTec’s products and information on the varied activities of Dürr Russia.
The 40 attendees from eight OEMs rated the Customer Days event extremely positively and regard the know-how provided as very helpful, as evidenced by the feedback: “Very practical”, “highly applicable for planners”, “right length of 1.5 days” and “really well organized” were some of the examples of customers’ praise. The event will be repeated next year.
It had one further effect: specific queries relating to filling systems and the x-road multi-function roll / brake test stand were received at the venue.
