EMC Industrial Group hosts Endress+Hauser leaders, strengthening 50-year bond

Matthias Altendorf reinforces strong global partnerships with New Zealand visit

The latest swing of Matthias Altendorf’s farewell tour as chief executive officer of Endress+Hauser brought his to New Zealand. Before transitioning to his new role as the chairman of the Endress+Hauser Supervisory Board in January, Altendorf has been taking the opportunity to visit with facilities and partners around the world.

While not many New Zealanders would recommend a visit during New Zealand’s four-seasons-in-one-day spring, EMC Industrial Group, the sole representative of Endress+Hauser in New Zealand, welcomed Altendorf and Rolf Leber, head of the Asia Pacific Support Centre, based out of Endress+Hauser Vietnam (Figure 1).

The visit was strengthened the already robust partnership between the two organizations, noted Chris Gailer, CEO of EMC. “It was a pleasure to host Herr Altendorf and Herr Leber,” said Gailer. “It once again reinforces the strong bond we have, not only between our two family-owned companies, but also for all our people. EMC has had a longstanding affinity with Endress+Hauser, as we not only stand by the exceptional quality and range of their instrumentation, but share core values and place mutual importance on growth and innovation.”

EMC has taken away many valuable insights from the visit, as well as a look into the future, he noted.

Highlights of the trip included site visits, with a trip to the Tip Top Ice Cream factory, strategy and planning sessions and an all-staff presentation (Figure 2).

“Down in New Zealand we can feel a bit isolated and removed from our suppliers, but visits like this, especially from industry leaders, help strengthen and confirm our place within the Endress+Hauser community,” said Gailer.

Endress+Hauser instruments account for 70% of EMC’s total sales. EMC and Endress+Hauser will celebrate their 50-year partnership in July.
