WERMA goes global - new branch office in the country of mountains and lakes

Follow the Customer - that is our motto. Our employees and signalling solutaions are to found in every location where our customers need us.

The foundation of our first subsidiaries and close cooperation with agencies all over the world guarantee this level of service. We value personal contact, respect each individual culture and are therefore able to flexibly adapt to the requirements of our international customers.

WERMA employees form staff for the new branch subsidiary
In 2005 WERMA inaugurated its first sales subsidiary in Switzerland. The sales within Switzerland will in future be directed from Neuhausen am Rheinfall. This is ideal as our German headquarters are only a few kilometres from the Swiss border. We therefore took the opportunity to transfer employees from our head office in Rietheim to form the staff of this new subsidiary. Michael Weidner who has worked for many years as the sales manager for Baden-Württemberg has been appointed to the position of subsidiary manager. He will be assisted by Simone Weggler, also a trusted WERMA employee from our export sales team.

The philosophy “WERMA goes global” is not a question of a “me too” reflex but the result of a thorough assessment of how we can offer our customers an even better level of service – maintaining the high standards WERMA customers are familiar with. With our new Swiss office we are there where our customers need us, enabling us to continue to react quickly and competently to our customers requests and needs.

Further branches under consideration
WERMA now services three of the most important international markets for machine building – USA, China, Switzerland – with its own staff on location. It is quite conceivable that further markets will follow especially those where we are not presently active but that already display a high degree of growth potential.

We will be extending our efforts in 2006 in order to meet our own high expectations and the expectations of our customers: with new products, with greater support for our agents, with the further improvement of our product quality and with additional staff training. This will enable us to continue to strengthen our global leadership position in the field of signal technology.
