Snow reliability 1,000 times over
As is customary each year, TechnoAlpin in January updated its official reference list to include the names of new customers, which last year were especially numerous. When the new list was circulated internally, the TechnoAlpin team could scarcely hide their delight. The reason: In 2010 the number of customers exceeded 1000 for the first time. Today, a total of 1,065 customers in 42 countries around the globe rely on TechnoAlpin's expertise.
"The fact that so many customers worldwide place their trust in us is a great honor, and naturally makes us very proud," says Gummerer. "Each project is a unique and exciting experience. In the past 20 years we have gathered a great deal of expertise. But every mountain is different, and each system therefore has to be tailor-made", says Gummerer, explaining the challenge involved in constructing snow-making systems. Each project therefore, whether for a large, small, or new system, or a system extension, has to be planned from scratch.
In recent years, TechnoAlpin has also built snow-making systems in a number of exotic countries. The 'snow experts' now ensure snow reliability in countries such as Iran, China, Mongolia, Azerbaijan and Korea, to name just a few. This naturally represents a particular challenge for the logistics department, which organizes the transportation of the systems on difficult roads and through various customs. The fully-automatic system for Iran, for example, had to be transported 4,997 kilometers across nine countries.
Having reached the 1000 mark, TechnoAlpin is by no means planning to rest on its laurels. "The confidence customers place in us also means a great deal of responsibility. We must and want to live up to this responsibility at all times", emphasizes Gummerer.
TechnoAlpin AG would like to thank all its customers for placing their trust in the company and for the good working relationship it has with them.
