We act as business accelerator, from concept to delivery 

Claus Barsoe, Business Area President, describes what his business area’s role as business accelerator involve. 

Claus BarsøeName a strength that is critical to your business area.

Finding the optimal solution for our customers’ sealing challenges forms the basis for how we act as a business accelerator, from concept to delivery. Customer integration is the root of everything we do. It drives our strategy, and how we make it easy for customers to do business with us.

What does your role as a business accelerator involve?

Our expertise, presence and innovation influence the entire supply chain, making product development, production and delivery faster and more efficient. A tangible example of this is the new Turcon® Roto L rotary seal, which, in a unique manner, only seals when needed, produces lower friction and significantly reduces vehicle fuel consumption. These benefits were used by the seal’s original customer to accelerate its business in terms of sales. Delivering seals in complete, ready-to-use assembly rather than individually also increases customer productivity.

In what areas is customer integration driving activities that make it easier to do business with you?

A key focus for us is advanced delivery solutions, such as Vendor-Managed Inventory (VMI) and C-class items management. A high degree of customer integration helps us to understand the customer’s unique needs and develop customized delivery programs for streamlining procurement, inventory and stock replenishment processes. We are also at the forefront of new engineering apps and on-line tools that can make life easier for our customers and help them choose an optimal sealing solution at any time of the day, whether at their desk or on the move.
