On 25.09. Ersa General Sales Manager Rainer Krauss welcomed more than 80 participants to the three-day International Sales Meeting 2018. For the first time participants from all five continents came to Wertheim – proof of the worldwide importance. For the Ersa business partners, this was more than a must-attend event to obtain the latest first-hand information and exchange ideas with other representatives – here at the ISM, the Ersa family met and agreed on common goals for future business success.


The motto of the event was “Common Corporate Growth”, which means: to continue growing together! Over the past eight years, the company has grown by 100 million euros – by no means an end point, but rather the starting point for further, even more dynamic development over the next five years. To this end, enormous investments had been made, for example in the new Kurtz Ersa Central Warehouse and the new production site being built directly opposite the Ersa headquarters.

Roadmap for future Ersa business

The roadmap for the Ersa business in the Soldering Tools, Rework & Inspection and Soldering Machines & Systems divisions was presented during three days of packed meetings. Ersa Managing Director Ralph Knecht: “We will achieve the desired growth with our subsidiaries in Mexico, the USA and Asia, among others, and with you as our business partners. With our worldwide network we are able to install and support systems anywhere in the world.”


Despite plenty of input in the form of lectures, there was time to celebrate – on the first evening, everyone had dinner together at Wertheim Castle. The icing on the cake followed on the second evening: a rich barbecue with salad buffet and a subsequent rock concert with the classic rock band Mallet at the historic Eisenhammer in Hasloch. After a hands-on tools workshop on the third day, the ISM participants travelled home highly satisfied and well prepared to take the Ersa business to the next level!
