In order to continue developing our market position in Europe, we have invested in a subsidiary in France.
Experienced sales manager Jean-Emmanuel Lechene heads up the French office. He moved to us from the company Alpha and has many years’ experience in the field of stencil technology besides in-depth knowledge of the French electronics industry market. Alongside him, the company was able to bring on board Ludovic Harrault to manage CAD order processing.
Customer proximity is an important factor in meeting the increasing demands of the local market for tailor-made solutions. Our customers also benefit from the optimized processes that are already standardized at Christian Koenen. Orders are processed in the local language at each site.
All members of staff at Christian Koenen attend an induction at the headquarters in Munich prior to starting work at their respective sites. Extensive training is provided and employees are fully integrated into the CK team. Quality and service also form part of the company vision at the site. The France subsidiary is closely connected to the headquarters in Munich, thus ensuring a constant flow of information between the two sites in terms of processes and technology.
Since June 2016, all orders made in France are handled directly by the French subsidiary.
