Palas® is excited to be a part of this year's European Aerosol Conference (EAC).
The conference takes place from August 25 - 30, 2019, at the Swedish Exhibition & Conference Centre in Gotheburg, Sweden.
Palas® can be found at booth no. F01:25 and is looking forward to your visit: Exchange ideas with Dr. Daniel Auer (CSO), Dr.-Ing. Stefan Hogekamp (Division Manager Environmental Technology) and Dipl.-Ing (FH) Sven Schütz (Sales Engineer) on the latest developments in the industry and our products!
The particle measurement technology specialist Palas® from Karlsruhe has founded an advisory board in July 2019 to support the management of the company as a strategic sparring partner in the long-term further development. Members of the advisory board are Dr. Christian Debus and Andreas Rapp.
Dr. Debus was Executive Vice President and Member Group Management at Camfil for several years and is an expert in the fields of clean air technology and air filter production. After a position at BMW, Mr. Rapp worked in consulting for more than 13 years before joining Sulzer AG in 2015. He has been Chief Transformation Officer at Volkswagen AG since 2018. Together, they will support the Palas® management in matters relating to strategic orientation, corporate development, and the development of new markets. In addition to the technical expertise of the advisory board, Palas® will also benefit from the large network of advisory boards. "The Advisory Board is a very effective body for the management of Palas®, which enables us to reflect our strategies and to sustainably implement our growth course", says Dr. Daniel Auer, Managing Director of Palas GmbH. Brockhaus Capital Management AG (BCM), which has been the majority owner of Palas® since December 2018, played a decisive role in the foundation of the advisory board. "With Dr. Christian Debus and Andreas Rapp we could win a powerful and industry experienced advisory board for Palas®, whose experience will support the management in consolidating and expanding the technology leadership globally", says Marco Brockhaus, CEO of BCM.
The meetings, which will also be attended by the Palas® management and representatives of BCM, will take place quarterly.
With 36 participants of 23 of our worldwide active 31 Palas® Sales Partners, who distribute our products in more than 50 countries, the Sales Partner Meeting from July 10 - 12, 2019, was very well attended again.
In 2018, we were able to increase sales by around 26% thanks to the strong commitment of our sales partners. The export share of Palas® is just under 70 %. At the Sales Partner Meeting new products are presented and our sales partners are trained in sales strategies, service and applications of the devices. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our sales partners for their excellent cooperation and congratulate AirMonitors Ltd. on winning the "Best Sales 2018" award.
At this year's Palas® Sales Partner Meeting the annual Best Sales Award was presented again. This year it went to AirMonitors, the Palas® Sales Partner from UK.
Air Monitors achieved considerable growth in 2018, investing heavily in its online presence and positively influencing the perception of particulate matter measurement across Europe. “I want to thank all people at Palas®, particularly Mara and her team for the support in the last few years. And also everybody behind; the order processing department, shipping and the whole team. Palas® is the most efficient responsive manufacturer that listens to all we need”, says Jim Mills, CEO of Air Monitors Ltd.
We would like to thank everyone at AirMonitors for their active support and are more than happy to have them as partners at our side. Thank you very much for your commitment and support in 2018, we are looking forward to the future together!
