The international Kannegiesser group met for its annual International Sales Conference at their headquarters in Germany during April. Over 200 Kannegiesser representatives from all over the world were introduced to the manufacturer’s latest innovations, which will be presented at various laundry exhibitions later this year, including Clean Show in New Orleans, USA in June and Texcare Asia in Shanghai, China, in September.
Kannegiesser’s international consultants and sales representatives gathered together for the two days to be trained on their newest product developments in a dedicated showroom. “With our innovations, we want to inspire laundry industries around the globe,” said sales directors Lars Blechschmidt and Otto Burger.
Kannegiesser attaches great importance to comprehensive and detailed staff training in order to provide high quality expertise to textile service providers in every corner of the world.
The company wants to solidify its role as a global pioneer of industrial laundry technology. Innovative concepts, such as Smart Laundry and automatic laundry feeding, are intended to benefit customers all over the world.
“Robotisation and the automation of processes are an inevitable development for the efficiency-driven textile services industry,” said Martin Kannegiesser, chairman, during his introductory keynote address (pictured).
For the manufacturer, laundry processes play a key role in the development of new products. “Of our production sites, three are now concentrated on conveyor technology, logistics and software development,” said director Uwe Priester. “Machine technology and logistics are inextricably linked to each other.”
