From 1 September we are supporting our Dutch customers directly from the new site at Oud-Beijerland, to the south of Rotterdam. With the opening of the new sales office rff is expanding its activities in Europe.
The opening of the rff Nederland site was marked by a small ceremony. This saw both Managing Director Michael Allexi and Oliver Zlobinski, Head of Business Development International, travel from headquarters. The two officially handed over responsibility for supporting Dutch customers to the country managers Barry van Manen (left) and Jan de Peinder (3rd from the left).
“With the opening of this site we are looking forward to closer proximity to our customers in the Netherlands and expanding our sales activities outside of Germany. This ceremony is therefore a further, key milestone in the 45-year history of the company. This site makes it easier to expand contact to our existing customers as well as persuading potential customers of our extensive range of products and services,” says Michael Allexi. Company management and the two country managers are convinced that customers in the Dutch region will benefit greatly from the local presence.
Both Barry van Manen and Jan de Peinder are long-serving specialists regarding the rff product portfolio of pipe fittings and pipes in carbon steel and stainless steel. They are also well acquainted with the Netherlands as well as other countries and their markets. In addition, they are also familiar with the language and mentality of the people there. “We are very grateful for the trust that the management of rff has placed in us. For this reason, we will be tackling our tasks with great commitment and motivation,” the two concluded.
