Accelerating customers performance 

Claus Barsøe, Business Area President, describes how Trelleborg offer customers better function, better business and better sustainability. 

Claus Barsoe Trelleborg Sealing SolutionsHow do you ensure you offer your customers the best solutions?

With marketing teams in all relevant countries, local applications engineers work with customers to match materials and products to various requirements, including temperature range, media compatibility and standard compliance. In food processing, for instance, our seals are vital, since chemicals and the extreme temperatures of cleaning regimes expose machinery, equipment and production to extreme stresses.

In what ways do you make it easier for customers to do business with you?

The digital age means that the way our customers do business has changed. In response, we focus on how to harmonize sales processes with our customers’ needs. In addition, to make it easier for engineers to specify seals and perform their daily design work more efficiently, we continuously develop online programs and mobile apps. These are ideal for technicians who spend less time at their desks and more on the move, at production facilities or oil platforms, for example.

What elements of your processes or solutions contribute to sustainability?

Low friction sealing contributes to energy savings and as a leading seal supplier for hydraulic applications, in machine tools or off-highway vehicles, we focus on enhancing friction characteristics. One example is the recently introduced Turcon Roto L seal that contributes to lowering fuel consumption. Material development has also been a contributory factor in making alternative fuelling possible, with innovative compounds to withstand aggressive biofuels.
