Wherever they are in the world, our customers expect our products and solutions in the commercial vehicle sector to be at the same level of quality and the same standard. I think that is totally understandable. After all, as a customer buying a branded product, I also place my trust in the assurance that comes with a ‘big’ name.
IAA for Commercial Vehicles – Challenge of globalisation
Delivering high quality products worldwide was also our focus during the IAA for Commercial Vehicles in Hanover this year.
In my opinion, what is needed to ensure lasting success and to live up to these expectations is an efficient network. A guaranteed international standard can only be achieved through continuous exchange and this is the only way we can meet the challenges of globalisation in the future. As well as becoming more varied, these challenges are constantly changing – at the same speed at which cultural and political changes are occurring around the world.
Communication over the globe
In order to ensure a level of quality that is uniform on a global level, our aim is to continuously communicate with experts and colleagues all over the globe, especially when it comes to developing product strategies. Regular conference calls for the international truck team are just one part of this. In addition, staff members from across the world come together once a year at MANN+HUMMEL’s headquarters in Ludwigsburg to discuss current and future challenges with their colleagues on site.
Of course, our international truck team also made use of this year’s IAA to exchange ideas and information, whilst also being available on site as contacts for our international customers and visitors. I am extremely proud of this dedicated international team and hope that visitors to the IAA for Commercial Vehicles in Hanover also had the chance to experience our international expertise and commitment for themselves.
