Visit of our customers from Latin America in companies of ZKL Group

We were pleased to welcome our two Latin American Distributors who visited companies of the ZKL Group in October. Namely Mr. Ricardo Lagger and Mr. Rodrigo Lagger of Lagger y Pandolfi, from Rafaela, Santa Fe and Mr. Mariano Apecech, representing Mayfer from Uruguay. Together with the Directors of ZKL Rodamientos SA, they were accompanied by the Director of the Commercial Department for Latin America, Ing. Radovan Brila, from ZKL Bearings, who kindly organized a visit to the different plants of the Group. The delegation visited the Klášterec factory, where they were greeted by Mr. Bárta, Executive Director of ZKL Klášterec nad Ohří and Ing. Helebrandt, Chief of Logistics, who showed and explained the processes carried out in this factory.

In the same way, they visited the Brno factory, where the Executive Director, Mr. Roman Zouhar, offered them a tour through the different plants. Our customers had the opportunity to see the growth of the factory, as the result of the investments that the Group has made through the years, and leading in new developments, optimization of times, greater availability and better delivery times.

The visit in Brno concluded with a lunch together with the General Director of ZKL a.s., Ing. Jiří Prášil and Ing. Jiří Prášil jr., Executive Director of ZKL Bearings, who offered the guests an exquisite lunch in one of the most traditional restaurants in the city.

Finally, the group visited the offices of ZKL Bearings in Prague, where they had the opportunity to talk with Mr. Brila about the business situation in Latin America and the outlooks for next year.

We are very grateful to our customers from Lagger y Pandolfi and Mayfer for their visit and for sharing this experience with us.
