Excited feedback from our customer seminar 2017

We are constantly developing and want to become even better and more efficient. In order to continue to be a partner to our customers over the long term, we want to share all the knowledge we have gained from various projects and our own development: Christian Pfeiffer invites its customers each year to a four-day seminar in Beckum on this topic. In 2017, there were 20 participants from 14 countries.

Specific & applicable: Whether plant managers, technical, production or maintenance managers – the seminar used technical presentations and interactive workshops to provide practical answers on lowering energy costs, increasing production quality, current product and market developments as well as analysis and optimization opportunities.

Collaborative & personal: The right supporting program was an important building block here. We not only wanted our customers to feel comfortable and get to know our region and our roots, we especially wanted to create an environment that supported lively and free communication.

The consistently positive feedback is a reward for the intense preparation and execution across all departments. We are looking forward to next year!
