PARIS, France (4th February, 2015) – Over the last several years, Tokheim have invested, enhanced and transformed their operations in Germany. Several Service Company acquisitions have required to be unified over this period to adopt common systems, processes, and to bring these all together under one management team. This objective has progressed to plan, whilst in parallel, the Tokheim equipment business has continued to increase its market leadership position in dispensers and has also increased its market share in systems.
Effective 1st February 2015, to further optimize the wider business opportunities we have identified in Germany, Tokheim are delighted to announce the appointment of Jochen Schraff as the Sales and Service General Manager for Germany. This will allow us, over time, to combine the complete Products and Services solutions we offer under one umbrella as we currently do across all other European markets where Tokheim have Sales and Service Divisions.
The intention is to mirror this established and successful model by developing a dedicated Sales and Service Division (SSD) in Germany, further increasing sales and establishing Tokheim as the leader in the four businesses in which it operates: Dispensers, Systems, Construction/Project Management and Service. Concentration will be given to these 4 business segments, selling the differentiating and added value of Tokheim’s wide scope of products and delivering synergies between these and associated complimentary services. All of the above we feel will provide our people with an even better work environment and deliver to our customers an even better product and service experience.
Jochen Schraff is a graduate in Mathematics and Economics from the University of Augsburg, and was previously with Washtec, the respected leader of the European car wash industry. Over the last 18 years, he has held numerous positions at Washtec in Engineering, Sales, and more recently as Director of Sales and Service for Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
