Bemis opens a new branch in Germany
Bemis continues to grow, with a new subsidiary in germany strengthening its european market presence.
Bemis Manufacturing Company, based in Wisconsin, US, has started 2020 well by founding a GmbH in Germany, underlining the company's clear growth strategy in the consumer goods sector for innovative bathroom products, in particular toilet seats. With this increased presence in the country, whose own warehousing structure is also planned for this year, Bemis wants to strengthen both personal customer care and service and sales processes on the ground. At the same time, the company wants to provide a local service not only to the market segments it has already penetrated but also and above all to professional wholesalers.
“Proximity to our customers is vital to us to be able to understand their constantly evolving needs and meet them effectively and in line with market requirements in the context of our solutions and innovations. For us, ‘glocal’ means the strategic use or targeted embedding of customer knowledge in our development processes, especially in a sector with an undifferentiated oversupply and moderate growth,” explains Philippe Bancken, Managing Director of Bemis EMEA.
As a result, Bemis will again be exhibiting at this year's SHK Essen, the meeting place for trade, installation, planning and consulting professionals. The company will showcase innovations in all aspects of toilet seats alongside its material competence and diversity as the only European manufacturer of all three main toilet seat materials – moulded wood, hard plastic and thermoplastic. Naturally, the subject of sustainability won't be overlooked, whether it be in the company’s use of environmentally friendly processes and colourants or, above all, its practice of recycling used products, as with its toilet seat made of 99.98% recycled thermoplastic. The company would also like to use this platform for active customer dialogue and invites industry professionals to go into “installation mode” on the stand and experience for themselves the Bemis patent Ultra-Fix™, a new and unique fastening technology for toilet seats.
The Bemis Manufacturing Company is a family business that is currently headed by the family’s fourth generation. Founded in 1901, the company produces not only toilet seats but also all kinds of moulded parts made of a variety of materials. The products range from small precision components to shopping trolleys and sealable containers for the health industry.
