GEA UK shows unified face
UK: GEA UK took advantage of last week’s Foodex show at the NEC to present its new unified face to the market.
GEA recently embarked on a worldwide group alignment to ensure GEA can offer the most advanced, efficient solutions and services in the market out of one point of contact – the new GEA country organisations.
With the new country organisation in the UK established there is just one face for all UK customers which provides all GEA offerings. GEA says this makes a vast difference especially when it comes to cross sector projects, although the product and service portfolio remains unchanged.
At the Foodex show, GEA showcased a wide-ranging portfolio for the food industry, including the GEA Grasso M refrigeration compressor.
The new UK management team comprises Ilija Aprocovic (managing director), John Suchar (head of service), Martin Jackson (head of solutions) and Paul Gerrard (head of equipment).
