Xcelgo plots German expansion as it opens new office
After several years of positive experiences in Germany, Xcelgo now further expands its German operations with a new sales office. A crucial step in strengthening the company’s position on a very important market, the CEO of Xcelgo says.
Wherever you’re from, you’ve properly heard about German Efficiency. Germans get things done. To get things done the first time around when working with automation systems, you need to test your control software thoroughly before integration.
In that light, Experior is an obvious tool for the German manufacturing and logistics industries and to increase the use of Experior in the country, Xcelgo has opened a new German office.
The new office will support Xcelgo’s activities in Germany and provide initial sales and liaison with new customers operating in the German industrial sectors. The manager of the new office in Heinsberg, Western Germany, is the experienced Wilfried Thoennissen:
“I am enthusiastic about joining Xcelgo, and I look forward to leading our German operations and expanding the use of our innovative technology in the German industry,” says Wilfried Thoennissen.
Germany is already an important market for Xcelgo who has had a project engineer operating out Germany since 2016, and long-term relationships with significant clients such as BEUMER Group. The German based manufacturer of intralogistics uses Experior when developing and integrating new material handling or baggage handling systems – ensuring a higher software quality and a more efficient and smoother start-up.
Germany is a manufacturing and engineering powerhouse in Europe, so we are very happy about this important step in strengthening our position and presence in the German market
By opening a new office, Xcelgo hopes to establish Experior as the preferred software tool for 3D modelling of automation systems in the German market – a market that Xcelgo’s CEO finds very important:
“Germany is a manufacturing and engineering powerhouse in Europe, so we are very happy about this important step in strengthening our position and presence in the German market,” says Bent Aksel Jørgensen, the CEO of Xcelgo. He is pleased that Wilfried Thoennissen will be the one leading Xcelgo’s German expansion:
“Wilfried Thoennissen has a solid background in the industry and brings with him important knowledge and contacts,” he says.
Germany isn’t the only market where Xcelgo has high ambitions. In both Spain and Italy for instance, Xcelgo has collaboration agreements with experienced resellers who aims to spread the knowledge and use of Xcelgo’s innovative 3D modelling solutions.
