Expansion in the European market
Consiglio International started cooperation with foreign companies in 1991 from a small contract for a well known Scandinavian company AJ PRODUKTER AB. “Throughout 25 years since that moment we have gained step by step notable customers not only in the Scandinavian market – Finland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway but all over Europe – in France, the UK, Switzerland, Germany, the Netherlands and also in the USA.”
The company capitalize on well educated staff. “We have well trained operators of CNC machines, experienced welders but also highly qualified engineers – graduates from our Poznan University of Technology. They often support our clients how to produce products in a better and more effective way. Our technical and engineering staff often supports our clients with technical know-how and expertise in development of new serias of products.” Consiglio sees its biggest growth in the IT industry – production of enclosures and components to IT stations, to data centers, servers, to consumer electronic equipment and also rapidly growing sector of vending machines.
Consiglio business and the web
“In our opinion Internet nowdays is the excellent way of B2B communication. Companies looking for subcontractors can find in an easy way new suppliers and vice versa Consiglio can find new clients by marketing in the web, searching in portals like Europages”. “Our campaign on Europages helped us to reach customers in France and the UK. We have received some interesting inquiries through Europages.”
“Consiglio intends to further expand in the European market – says Mr Odzimek – as we want to share our knowledge gained in metal processing over 26 years of our activity with our customers and offer them first class products and components”.
