With Christian Fuchs and David Taylor, two experienced experts have taken over responsibility for sales activities at WENZEL as of October 1, 2019. Christian Fuchs is the new Sales Director of the WENZEL Group and is responsible for all sales activities worldwide. David Taylor, as European Sales Director is responsible for the activities of our subsidiaries in Europe.
“We at WENZEL build innovative and sustainable solutions for our customers as a quality leader in metrology. For this we need managers who represent our values as a family business. Passion for metrology and leadership responsibility in the field of technically sophisticated products – these two newcomers are a great benefit for the whole group”, explains Prof. Dr. Heiko Wenzel-Schinzer, Managing Director and CDO at WENZEL. “We are now investing in the efficiency of our worldwide sales network in order to establish our new products for production and measuring rooms even more successfully on the market,” continues Managing Director Dr. Heike Wenzel.
In recent years WENZEL has developed from a medium-sized company to a globally operating group with more than 600 employees. In addition to its headquarters in Germany, WENZEL has its own subsidiaries in Europe (Switzerland, England, Italy and France), Asia (Singapore, India and China) and the USA. In many other countries WENZEL is represented by partners. The expansion of these branches as well as the intensification of the relations with the partners and the customers is the essential goal of WENZEL for the coming years.
Christian Fuchs also sees it this way and emphasizes: “Since 1968 the WENZEL Group has developed from a start-up company to a globally successful group of companies. The genes for success are founded in the sustainable company management and the teamwork of the employees”.
“In just one week I have already seen the huge potential in the WENZEL Product range. The superb quality and relative ease of use for such accurate metrology only gives me more confidence of the impact I can make. The teams across Europe are professional, knowledgeable and keen to support customers to give robust solutions and a clear return on investment. My aim is to harness this potential and to lead WENZEL Europe into new markets now and in the future.”
