From 9th to 11th October, NSK hosted in Dubrovnik (Croatia) the 2019 edition of the European Distributor Conference: three days where more than 100 delegates of NSK’s distributors from EMEA region shared their experiences. NSK shared information about its Global Aftermarket Strategy and “What’s New” about products, sectors, AIP and Marketing. Representatives from NSK’s Top Management were present to liaise with distributors and emphasizing their importance to the company’s success moving forwards.
“The Aftermarket Business is complex. But it’s a people business,” explained NSK’s Jean-Yves Chapelet, GAM Marketing Director & Director Western Europe Sales Division. “So, it is key for NSK to decide with whom we are approaching the markets. That is why we really appreciate the great attendance of our distribution partners, as they have been and will be our source for success in the Aftermarket business.”
During the conference NSK proudly celebrated distributors who successfully became Certified AIP Partners: APRB (Russia), Coroll (Czech Republic) and Lagerton (Serbia); and the first Certified AIP Service Branch: Rubix (Netherlands). The Certified AIP Partner Programme has proven to be very interesting for NSK distributor partners. It differentiates them from their direct competitors by increasing their skills in investigating and solving technical issues, offering specific application expertise, sector know-how and MRO project leadership. In addition, NSK continues to invest in its Authorised Distributor network with the Certified AIP Programme.
