“We were very happy to receive an invitation from the Turkish Foundry Association to host a customer seminar on November 17”, says DISA VP of Global OEM Sales, Flemming Juel Jensen, who gave both the welcome speech and opening presentation at the recently held technological solutions seminar at the Istanbul Pendik Green Park Hotel in Turkey.
“We were just as happy to see that 100 attendees, representing close to 30 local foundries, took the time out of their busy schedules to participate very actively in our one-day seminar, focusing on the complete foundry and global services from DISA and Wheelabrator with valuable input from our local agent Meta-Mak”, he continues.
Great interest and active participation from all attendees
Apart from a number of DISA, Wheelabrator and Meta-Mak presentations on e.g. state-of-the-art moulding equipment, proven blast solutions, processes and core machinery, the customer event also included some very interesting insights into the foundry industry in Turkey from three local customers, before the full-day seminar was concluded with a most active Q&A session, cocktails and dinner.
Request for additional onsite seminars
The dinner speech was held by DISA’s President and COO Peter Holm Larsen who took the opportunity to thank for the vast interest shown and the many questions asked by all attending customers. He also noted that a very large number of the foundries participating had requested that additional customer seminars and symposiums should be held in Turkey in the future, so as to allow all attendees more profound insights into how DISA and Wheelabrator seek to shape the industry by way of innovative complete foundry projects that lower our customers’ costs per casting.
High marks on customer evaluation forms
“We very much value the feedback given by our customers and also highly appreciate our great relations with the Turkish Foundry Association. We look forward to both continuing and extending our strong partnerships in Turkey in the years to come, and we will work actively to be able to host similar customer events in the future”, says Peter Holm Larsen in the aftermath of an event that received an overall presentation score of 4.5 out of 5.0 upon review of the feedback forms filled in by the majority of the attendees.
