For Industry 4.0
As an external sales team, we win large and medium-sized industrial customers for innovative Industry 4.0 solutions.
Work with us if you are a manufacturer of engineered components, systems, and software applications and would like to win European and German manufacturers as customers.
Our assignments are typically long term. In 1994 PBS was asked by a US manufacturer to develop the German market for its line of technical components. The customized approach for each of the market levels – OEM, system suppliers, aftermarket and key accounts – has since been successfully adapted into other European regions. In 2013 PBS expanded its role and now serves as the sales team for all European business from the US and European plants.
For another US principal, PBS Sales acts as a virtual subsidiary. The PBS sales team developed a European distribution network in 24 countries and handles all customer service and order processing functions. This includes monitoring a warehouse operated by a third party, and taking care of billing, shipping, accounts receivable and returns. Essentially, PBS Sales is giving the US company a complete European operation.
For a NAFTA/China- based manufacturer of complex plastic injection molded hybrid components PBS Sales serves as the European sales & engineering support office. PBS Sales is accessing the development and application engineering teams of leading German automotive, railroad, appliances and general industry OEMs. Ultimate sourcing decisions are done by German/European head offices, while the molded components are then shipped to the various local assembly plants – in particular China and Mexico. The PBS technical sales staff pro-actively coordinates this truly global business and thus makes the US/Chinese company an easy-to-work with, successful global-local manufacturing partner.
An Indian specialist for precision stamped stator/rotor packages tasked PBS Sales with business development with German manufacturers of electric motors and drives. The PBS Sales team used its extensive network of small and medium-sized German companies, the German “Mittelstand”, to quickly generate leads and sales for the Indian manufacturer. The expertise of the PBS Sales staff in working with various global business cultures has been a key factor to found a solid relationship.
