Based on daily, practical experience




The essential 'Local Presence'

Most German buyers have in the past, experienced problems in dealing with British manufacturers and suppliers. These problems range from trivial to fundamental, but even the smallest problem can become a major negative influence on sales if not handled and resolved quickly and efficiently - and preferably in the German language. German buyers for reasons of legal responsibility as well as administrative convenience, prefer to deal with a permanent local presence; to have local telephone contact, someone within easy reach to answer questions and to react - quickly, and in their own language!
