Cable car and mountain railway promotional campaign

Following the successful use of simalube on the "Glacier Paradiese" mountain railway in Zermatt, simatec has started a promotional campaign to draw attention to its suitability for use on other mountain railways.
The following partners are officially involved in the cable and mountain railway campaign, which is currently up and running:
BEHAM (Austria), Agrinova (Italy), Grützner GmbH (Germany), YTM Industrial Oy (Finland), RIMAZ (Slovenia), Lindberg & Lund AS (Norway) GA Lindberg (Sweden), and Tech Con (Czech Republic). In Switzerland simatec ag is implementing the campaign itself

The three-stage campaign was launched with a personalised e-mail to all mountain railway companies. During the second stage, partners independently sent out a personalised postal mailing. During the third and final stage, the cable and mountain railways received follow-up telephone calls.

The promotional campaign was accompanied by press reports and advertisements in specialist journals and on the main Internet platforms. simatec's Italian partner also attended the Alpitec trade fair in Bolzano from 13 – 15 April.

The German specialist journal B&I also published a special three-page report which it sent directly to cable and mountain railway companies in the German speaking areas of Europe. Link to the reports:

Lubrication kit for escalators and moving walkways

The lubrication kit for escalators which we presented in the newsletter back in September 2009 has gone down a storm in the industry. Fifty of these applications are already being deployed in Switzerland. Experiences so far have been extremely positive. The product has been particularly well received in Northern Europe, with test installations already in place in Finland and the UK. Other sales partners and escalator manufacturers have also expressed an interest.

New simatec partner in Poland

Toruń-based firm MARGO is simatec’s new official partner in Poland. The company specialises in the sale and distribution of drive technology and has several offices in Poland.

On 2 and 3 February 2010, Product Manager Mateusz Glura and Service Engineer Marek Zasowski visited simatec to attend a two-day training course.

During the two days, Mateusz and Marek gained an important insight into simatec products. The course was rounded off by a visit to a cardboard factory where numerous simalubes are deployed.

“Our new partners' in-depth technical knowledge made the course very constructive and interesting for all involved,” says Sales Manager Jürg Moor, summing up the two days. Back in Poland, Mateusz and Marek will pass on what they have learnt to the MARGO sales team and assist them with any technical questions they may have.

“On behalf of the simatec team, I would like to thank Mateusz and Marek for their commitment and look forward to working with them,” said Mischa Wyssmann, CEO of simatec.
