New Head of European Sales at PFERD
Stefan Heimes is the new Head of European Sales at PFERD. Heimes has been working for August Rüggeberg GmbH & Co. KG PFERD Werkzeuge for more than 25 years and has held various positions, most recently as Head of Department in the European sales division. His tasks have included setting up and coordinating subsidiaries and joint ventures, including some outside Europe, introducing SAP to the export sales department, reorganising international customs procedures and setting up a central Europe-wide logistics system for PFERD.
In future, Stefan Heimes will be responsible for the whole of Europe as far as Russia but excluding Germany. Heimes sees his main task as intensifying sales work in the individual markets, particularly with in-house sales staff, "in order to be even nearer to customers". Because this is "still the basic pre-requisite for optimum local customer support."
PFERD has been a leading international manufacturer of tools for surface finishing and material cutting for more than 100 years. The combination of individual support and innovative high-performance tools with the skills of users on-site always guarantees an optimum result whatever the task.
