In his second blog article our international "high mobility pool" member, José Samuel Ramirez Torres from Mexico, talks about his current and past tasks and challenges in the voestalpine Group.
For my second project I was established in Krems/Austria working on different projects for voestalpine Krems. voestalpine Krems is a market leader in the production of tubes and sections. With 550 employees, the company is part of the Metal Forming Division and is supported by a well-established worldwide network providing the company with flexibility and the ability to respond to customers in the global market. The main focus of the company is the mobility, energy and building industry. The product applications are for example: agricultural and construction machinery, forklifts, door frames, floor and roof frames, car bumpers, window rails, solar installations, vineyard posts, among others.
The main activities I was working on, were in the areas of Marketing and Sales as well as in the area of Communication and Brand Management. In the area of Marketing and Sales I was project manager for the implementation of a CRM System within Stamptec group, which is the Automotive Body Parts unit in Germany. In the area of Communication and Brand Management I was assisting the Brand and Communication Manager in the generation of reports within the Metal Forming Division.
"Having activities from different areas allowed me to have a broad impression of the activities and the core business of the company and how challenges are addressed by the colleagues."
New voestalpine corporate design
The voestalpine Group is marking the consistent implementation of its strategy and its changing self-image by updating its visual identity: its transformation from a European steel company to a global technology and capital goods group is now also being mirrored in its corporate design. The new visual identity combines tradition with future expectations, and increasingly symbolizes dynamism and a focus on the future.
