Ersa ISM 2020

International Sales Meeting 2020

Nothing can replace a physical being together. Nevertheless, the Ersa Sales Team has managed to bring together its worldwide network of agents as it does every year. Whether representatives from Poland, Italy, Chile, Thailand or the USA – over 150 people took part in the International Sales Meeting 2020, which this year took place virtually. The welcoming address by General Sales Manager Rainer Krauss and Hansjürgen Bolg, Head of Soldering Tools, Rework & Inspection, was followed by various technical presentations covering the entire Ersa portfolio.


Presentation + interaction via livestream

From Wertheim, where the sales team met, the presentations were transmitted via livestream. This enabled the partners not only to follow the event live, but also to interact, ask questions and actively participate in the discussion. A highlight was the virtual tour of the new buildings and production facilities in Shenzhen and Wertheim. Rainer Krauss and Hansjürgen Bolg also put the sales team in the mood for the upcoming 100th anniversary of Ersa GmbH next year, for which preparations are already in full swing. The entire team hopes to meet again in person soon – but the feedback on the virtual event was positive throughout.

“As always a pleasure to see and hear from all the Ersa family. I hope that for the next ISM it will be in Germany. The ISM was OK, but I miss touching the machines and seeing the new things there are.”
