Network Cabling Specialist Award

Representatives from cabling distribution companies across Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) gathered in Prague recently to attend Siemon's second annual network cabling specialist meeting.

John Siemon, vice president of global operations of Siemon - a global leader in the network cabling industry, welcomed the representatives from 14 countries to the conference. The event provided an opportunity for Siemon's network of distributors to meet, establish relationships and share ideas and knowledge, as well as learning more about new products and services. Siemon has specifically identified high performing sales representatives from their distribution channel to become network cabling specialists for the company.

A highlight of the conference was the awards presentation to reward the efforts and success of the best performing network cabling specialist. The winner of the award was Pedro Brandao, cabling account manager from Aviquipo/Comstore in Portugal. "We are delighted to win this award and feel that it reflects the excellent working relationship that we have with Siemon. Everyone has worked very hard and the cooperation between our two companies has been outstanding. Siemon has listened to what we need in Portugal and helped us to achieve success in the market. Together we are providing our customers with state-of-the-art technologies and tools to maintain their future. For me personally, I am proud to be the network cabling specialist and look forward to continued success with Siemon"

Keith Astin, Managing Director of Siemon EMEA said: "Maintaining a strong network of distributors is a key part of our business strategy and we aim to achieve effective long term partnerships across the EMEA region. By working together we can add real value to the business and our Network Cabling Specialist Award highlights the commitment everyone has to achieving success."

He continued: "The conference is an excellent opportunity for our distributors to share ideas and experiences and for us to update them on our successes, strategies and solutions. As Siemon continues to increase its presence in the EMEA region our distributor partnerships will remain at the heart of our business."

The conference also marked the opening of Siemon's new logistics and manufacturing site in the Czech Republic. The facility, located at Brno, is 2.5 hours southeast from Prague and has been chosen for its central European location and its skilled labour force. The new Brno facility will serve as Siemon's "pan-EMEA" logistics hub - housing stock and acting as the key distribution centre for the company's markets across Europe, Middle East and Africa. Additionally, manufacturing operations at Brno will be assembling some of the company's copper structured cabling product lines. The new site was formally opened by John Siemon at this event for Siemon's distributors and the press.
