Trelleborg appoints sales lead to oversee German expansion

As part of an ongoing strategy to enhance its presence across Europe, Trelleborg’s antivibration solutions operation has appointed Hendrik Heitjans to oversee new business development across the German market.

Based in Germany, Hendrik will be responsible for developing and building the supplier distribution network and growing the sales operation of the industrial vibration business in the country, with a focus on the special purpose vehicles (SPV) and industrial machinery markets. Working with the existing team, Hendrik will look to enhance Trelleborg’s position in German speaking countries, identifying channels to develop its sales operations and grow its customer base.

With over 11 years’ experience working across the antivibration sector, Hendrik joins Trelleborg Industrial Antivibration Solutions division with a strong sales and management background, previously holding roles as a key account manager for a series of leading organizations in Germany. As part of his role, Hendrik will be responsible for servicing the needs of new and existing clients, customer and market analysis and technical customer assistance, as well as representing Trelleborg at upcoming trade events.

Max Billinger, Business Unit President, explains: “We are excited to welcome Hendrik to Trelleborg’s industrial antivibration solutions operation where he will play an integral role in the development of the company. His experience, enthusiasm and understanding of the industry are real assets and we look forward to working with him developing this key area of the business throughout 2016 and beyond.”

Hendrik added: “I am delighted to be joining an organization which is recognized as a world leader in polymer engineering and so well-respected across the sector. While Trelleborg is already firmly established in the European market, the opportunity to develop its position and achieve its ambitions for growth in Germany is a fantastic opportunity. Meeting new customers and developing close relationships from the outset will help ensure we identify the most suitable components for their needs and enable us to offer an exceptional service. I look forward to working alongside the team and building positive relationships with new and existing customers.”
