Global experience and expertise deployed on customer premises
Voith Industrial Services offers a wide range of services to the automotive industry.
We already have long-standing partnerships with many of our customers. We grow with them and with their international requirements. In a nutshell: you will find us wherever cars are being built, and we will go wherever new car plants are being established.
In this context, the comprehensive knowledge transfer between specialists worldwide is extremely important to maintain the necessary quality standards at all locations. This is what we call our “mentoring model”. A good example of this is the work undertaken by Jörn Brand.
In November 2010 Jörn Brand embarked on an adventure. For two years he would hold the reins as Voith helped a customer establish a new car factory in Eastern Europe. He didn’t speak that country’s language and had never worked abroad. And yet he took up the challenge.
The customer had engaged the local branch of Voith Industrial Services to perform extensive industrial services including maintaining conveyor systems, technical building services management and technical cleaning of machinery and equipment. To do the job properly, Voith needed to improve its know-how in that country. And so Voith specialists from other locations arrived to act as mentors and share their expertise with their colleagues at the new facility.
“Never before had there been so many different work areas and locations involved as in this particular case,” says Jörn Brand. The mentors came from four different countries.
