Tech Day, USA - Customers experience our technology center

Cazenovia, 19th October 2011 – In October, our facility in Cazenovia, USA introduced itself to its new and current customers as a center of technology. At this first “Tech Day” in the USA, over 40 customers from all business areas were treated to an exposition of our global qualities. There were numerous representatives from our notable customers; Chrysler, General Motors (GM) and Stanley Black & Decker, for example. In addition to the products that we specifically develop and produce in Rochester Hills, Michigan and Cazenovia, New York, Marquardt presented its entire product portfolio. Of all the products, the newest technologies from the automobile and home appliance industries were most prominent. The customers were also able to catch a glimpse into the supply chain, as well as the IT, quality, tooling, plastic molding and component production departments. They were able to exclusively concentrate on Marquardt and our products. More intensive breakout sessions with individual departments took place, and in addition to an informative tour of the facility, there was enough time for a free exchange of experience and know-how. Of particular interest was the announcement of the construction of our new factory in Mexico, which we consider an extension of our production location in Cazenovia.

Numerous colleagues from Marquardt Switches proudly presented their areas of expertise and impressed the guests with our “global footprint”. The feedback after the event was positive and many customers have already promised to attend the next Tech Day in Cazenovia, bringing more colleagues with them. Since then, there have been discussions on future cooperation with Marquardt. One visitor’s impressions after the visit: “I didn’t know that Marquardt can supply all my needs!”
