International sales head to Osterode

More than 35 of Piller’s international Sales team gathered recently at its headquarters in Osterode, Germany.

Professionals from 8 countries covering Europe and India attended this advanced 2-day programme focused on new product offerings.

Discussions included the Critical Power Module (CPM) and attendees were able to see the first of these new category UPS units on the production line.

Using a combination of theory and practical demonstration the group strengthened their knowledge of the new product which sits alongside the XT and CSHD products belonging to Piller’s Active Power division.

Andrew Dyke, Managing Director – Global Business: "A well-organized event by Sales, in co-operation with R&D and Service, made this two day programme highly informative and productive for all concerned. Interest in our CPM product has gone from strength to strength since its concept launch last year and combined with Active Power products makes a great portfolio for the smaller UPS system application.

The Piller team assemble at the Piller HQ, Osterode,Germany.
