SUPPORT FOR THE FIELD SERVICE
Since May 1st Wolfgang Rösner has been supporting the technical field service of Gerhardt with a special focus on expanding the new sales for the OCX-series. We are glad to have his assistance, which is truly needed in the course of the rollout of the OCX and the already huge demand. Together with the established sales team around Uwe Danner, Henri Schiborr, and Bernd Gerhardt, Wolfgang Rösner is the contact person of operators especially in the southern German market. Last he had worked for the producer Sielaff.
OCX – SUCCESSFUL ROLLOUT OF OUR SHOWPIECE
The production of the OCX series has finally started! After the initial delay, we are happy that we've been able to offer the smallest and finest of our Gerhardt machines for sale since the beginning of the year. And the first feedback of our regional, national and international customers has been consistently and extraordinarily positive. They are especially impressed by the innovative MMX technology. It has been acknowledged that the technology truly yields great product results, the milk foam is a dream, and as a completely closed system the cleaning expenses have been reduced to a minimum.
But we don’t want to rest on our laurels: From now on you get fitting accessories in high-class OCX design along with the OCX – cappuccino and espresso cups, a stylish latte macchiato glass and even sugar sticks and little chocolate bars in the same design! And the special equipment cup-warmer in fitting design and payment module will be deliverable starting July 2018. All in all an amazingly successful start of our smallest new one!
VENDITALIA – VISIT US, IT'S WORTH IT!
From Wednesday, June 6th, to Saturday, June 9th, 2018, we will present our range of models at the Venditalia in Milan. Can our OCX-series also pass as an office barista in the motherland of the espresso? We are convinced of that!
The Venditalia, which takes place every two years in turn with the Eu'Vend in Cologne, is the European leading fair of the vending industry. By now it is vital for us to show our presence at this event. And it pays off! Not just for us but also for the audience. We look forward to your visit!
GERHARDT OCX – THE NEW YEAR WILL JUST START WELL!
Our new OCX series will of course be the focus at the HoReCa fair HOST, which will take place in Milano from October 20th to 24th. We will present updated and completely functioning prototypes of our new series in Milano.
Unfortunately the delivery date of our OCX will be delayed to January 2018. The most important reasons for this delay are the complex implementation of the innovative MMX technology as well as the revision of the powder canisters: in order to increase their volumes and enable an easier filling, they will jut out upward in the finished series.
But it is for sure that we will really “rev up” with the production of OCX at the beginning of the new year in January!
HOST – THE INNOVATIONS-FAIR OF THE HORECA-WORLD IN MILAN
Host is the leading fair of the HoReCa-World und dedicates a huge part to the topic of coffee and vending machines. The international “Place To Be” to get to know the most important novelties of the industry. From the 20th to the 24th of October 2017, Milan is once again going to be “the capital of the professional hospitality industry” with over 2,000 exhibitors.
We are going to present our entire range of models including the new and the newest developments at this fair. For example, the Gerhardt OCX series – Mono and Duo – as well as the revolutionary MMX-technique and the innovative CTG-2018 vending machine.
The modern Fiera Milano exhibitions center has a direct connection to the subway and offers 6,000 parking spots for the over 150,000 expected visitors from 170 countries. We look forward to your visit!
AND THE WINNER IS ... GERHARDT MMX!
The Vending Star 2017 goes to Gerhardt Vending Manufactory’s latest innovation.
It became quite emotional for us again during the “Vending Star” award at the Eu’Vend: Arnaud van Amerongen, who, being the managing director of Swiss Aequator AG, is a real expert and cognoscente of the business, congratulated his “dear colleagues of the kind, professional family company Gerhardt” on the award in a cordially encomium. He emphasized how important it is to question especially a finished technology which all manufacturers have accepted as a condition and recognize in the process that time and again there are ways to newly think of and develop something which really brings progress to the vending machine business. With recent MMX mixing system innovation, the company had succeeded in this in an exemplary way.
We thank van Amerongen for his appositing words and the members of the jury for their award.
After we received the first Vending Star ever in 2007 for the first fully automatic lid dispenser withdisposing mechanism, it is now the second time that we are awarded with this prize. It will be that time again in ten years – at the latest!
EU’VEND 2017 – THE COUNTDOWN IS ON
Some more few days only, then the time has come – Eu’Vend opens its gates at April 27th. About 200 exhibitors will be present and the organizer expects far more than 5.000 skilled visitors! And probably each of them will drop by at our booth B80/C89 in hall 9.1 and examine our matured bestsellers as well as the Gerhardt novelties. Above all, our all new developed OCX series. We are convinced of the success of our smallest new family member for one hundred percent, of course. But a little nervousness will remain anyhow – how well will it go down with the skilled audience? We at Gerhardt Vending Manufacture will know more, just in a few days… and you will too.
Because we are looking forward to welcome you – yes exactly: You! – at the Eu’Vend 2017. See you then!
