Boomer Business Development: Café do Brasil

The founders of Boomer Business Development, Ricardo and Eduardo Guttmann, visited Electro Terminal recently to strengthen the new business partnership. Over a cup of marvelous coffee, which they had brought from Brazil as a present, they told us about the philosophy behind their company:

"We assist international companies in developing business in Brazil. Boomer is a fairly new company based on the continuously growing global markets. Acting as a kind of bridge, our company creates the opportunity to connect people and ideas. And, what's more, we are committed to generate answers and results. International corporations often struggle with barriers such as languages, distances, as well as sociocultural and local economic aspects. In line with our company's vision, we help organizations like Electro Terminal to surpass these barriers without having to use big teams, lots of time and complex structures."

A little anecdote of their stay at Electro Terminal in Innsbruck: After an active exchange of information on sales and marketing issues, Eduardo and Ricardo gave us an engraved award as a special "Thank you" for our hospitality. What a lovely gesture!

We're looking forward to continuing our excellent cooperation with these enthusiastic business partners.

Eleman rocks the Amper 2019

This year's Amper trade fair in Brno was dedicated to the fields of electrical installation, automation, building technology, communication and radio technology. The show was a big success for our Czech sales partner Eleman. More than 43,000 visitors took the chance to learn more about the latest technological innovations. Products from Electro Terminal were displayed on two boards, attracting customers as well as new prospects. The MICROCON SMD connectors were among the most popular components. Eleman knew how to show the application of these products in a very clear way.

Electro Group di F. Fazio: Customer focus, family & Formula 1

Electro-Group has been distributing Electro Terminal components in Italy for almost a quarter of a century with great passion.

"I feel part of the big international Electro Terminal family", says Felice Fazio, proprietor of Electro-Group. His connection to Electro Terminal has become very strong throughout the years.

Interview with Beltrade's Sales Manager Tomasz Owczarczyk

Tomasz, how would you describe the relationship between Beltrade and Electro Terminal?
Our cooperation with Electro Terminal started in 2011. Since the very beginning, we have been highly successful on the market and quickly integrated Electro Terminal products into our customers' production in the household appliance sector. After the first year, we discovered that there is also potential in the lighting sector. This was actually a new market for us, which we entered thanks to Electro Terminal. Recently, Gerhard Rieser has become our contact person and interface at Electro Terminal. In Poland, we would say that this man can build rockets to travel to outer space. That is a way of saying that you can trust him. He is very professional and reliable.

You have already visited our company. What comes to your mind when you remember that visit?
Key Account Manager Aleksander Rodkin, Managing Director Jurij Pastuszyk and myself were very impressed by the fully automated and very clean production. What's more, we really appreciated the friendly atmosphere and the personal contact with the staff and management.

Could you imagine living and working in Innsbruck?
Yes, I could imagine a life in Innsbruck. The people are very friendly and relaxed. And I love the mountains – mountain biking in summer and skiing in winter. But it would not be possible for me to work at Electro Terminal. I would be too distracted looking out the office window with this beautiful view of the mountains.

Which goals does Beltrade have for the LED Expo Ukraine?
We will be promoting our company and services as well as the Electro Terminal products. We want to prove that our relatively "high-cost" top-level products and services are ultimately not as expensive because of their high quality, smart logistics and excellent customer service.

We present: Magnetic Systems Technology (MST)

In March 2018, Electro Terminal entered a cooperation agreement with MST. MST was founded in April 2011 in a management buyout agreement with the Philips Lighting electromagnetic ballasts factory in Kętrzyn, Poland. The Management team purchased the factory as well as the MST brand from Philips.

MST operates in the electronics industry and produces components for the lighting industry. Like Electro Terminal, MST is a member of the Zhaga Consortium, a global lighting industry organization that aims to standardize components of LED luminaires.

The cooperation with Electro Terminal started only a few months ago. “We are a companies with a similar DNA, organization culture and a customer centric approach. Electro Terminal's products allow MST to offer a broader portfolio to the lighting market", says Jarosław Sachryń, CEO and President of the Board (see top left photo).

Gerhard Rieser from Exceedation Sales is highly confident that "the partnership between Electro Terminal and Magnetic System Technology will increase Electro Terminal's presence on the Polish market and that MST's technical expertise will improve the service level substantially."

Nersan – 20 years of partnership

"Actually, I grew up with Electro Terminal – I wrote my first business e-mail when I was a 15-year-old girl" says Pelin Tunoglu from Nersan, Electro Terminal's sales partner in Istanbul. Pelin looks back at a 20 year relationship with the Austria-based manufacturer of connection technology.

It all started in 1996 when the owner of Nersan, Yasar Recep, visited the trade fair in Hannover and contacted Electro Terminal. Due to language problems, a whole year passed before the cooperation actually started in May 1997.

Today, Nersan distributes connection components for the lighting industry and electrical installations, such as:

  • SLK – screwless luminaire connectors
  • MICROCON SMD – PCB connectors
  • EKL – connector strips
  • SDKF – universal wire connectors

The contract was printed on thermal paper, so the letters are hardly readable anymore. But the content of this contract is still the basis for a successful business relationship.

Tridonic Distribution

For the very first time, Tridonic Distribution will represent Electro Terminal's brand and products at the LuxLive fair in London from November 15 - 16, 2017. "Tridonic Distribution works closely with the UK lighting industry, the Electro Terminal product range being an important part of the product portfolio", says Luke Arter, the Sales Director. Heidi De Lucchi, Sales Manager at Tridonic Distribution, is originally from South Africa. She has introduced a number customers to some very exotic African delicacies at last year's LuxLive Fair in London, including crocodile, zebra and ostrich. We'll see what she has to offer at LuxLive 2017.
