Kalzip invited “Premium Partner”
60 participants joined the event “Kalzip 4.0”
Koblenz, September 2019
“We would like to thank you for your loyalty and show you the power and energy with which Kalzip is there for you again”, these were the opening words of Christoph Schmidt, Sales Director of Kalzip, at the first Premium Partner Event after the purchase of Kalzip GmbH by Donges SteelTec GmbH in autumn last year.
Kalzip has repositioned itself and is once again the strong partner for aluminium roof and façade solutions. The motto of the event “Kalzip 4.0” is intended to express this development – analogous to “Industry 4.0”. So Kalzip presented a product development directly: Equipped with a resistant coating, the Kalzip profiled sheet does not have to be foild for production, transport or assembly. That saves an effortable work step on the construction site and is also good for the environment because no plastic has to be disposed of. The new Vario LB renovation system also makes it possible to renovate flat roofs that previously could only be solved with lightweight steel construction.
Johannes Laumann, Managing Director of Kalzip and CEO of the Donges Group, also cherished the positive development. “The past twelve months have been a hard way. We are very proud of what we achieved and above all we appreciate the close and long term relationships to you, our customers.
Representatives of the 17 companies who joint the event took the opportunity to introduce their companies and projects. Most of them family-run companies that have been operating for several generations, often specialised in metal roofs and facades and processing Kalzip since many years.
At the end of the official part, Peter Brechtelsbauer, CEO of the Donges Group, presented the Premium Partners with a certificate made of aluminium. Within the framework of the revised bonus system, different medals are awarded each year, depending on the intensity of the cooperation. These medals are affixed to the board and document the close cooperation between Premium Partners and Kalzip.
Afterwards the 60 participants then went on a segway tour. It was a lot of fun, but it also needed some balance and sensitivity. After the outdoor experience, there was, as part of the evening programme, plenty of time for exchange and networking. “A very successful event. I´m sure we could convince our premium partners of our new strength,” summarized Johannes Laumann at the end of the eventful day.
