Logistics BusinessGrowth Drives Sales Team Shake-Up at Cimcorp

A full schedule of customer orders, growing order sizes and a promising outlook have led Cimcorp to separate its sales departments for the tyre-manufacturing and warehousing & distribution sectors, says the Finland-based maker of robotic order fulfilment solutions.

Kai Tuomisaari, Vice President, Sales, said, “We are making these changes in order to ensure that all customer expectations continue to be met. The needs of our clients in the tyre industry differ somewhat from those of our customers in the warehouse & distribution sector, and we believe that this organisational change will enable us to provide even more efficient and personal service during project negotiations than previously.”

The new structure of system sales at Cimcorp’s headquarters, which is effective from the beginning of June, will support the company’s growth and form the basis for the continuing development of its international organisation, it says.

Three new Directors appointed
Former Sales Manager Veli-Matti Hakala has been appointed as Director, Tyre Industry Sales.

Kari Miikkulainen, formerly Sales Manager, has been appointed to the role of Director, W&D Industry Sales.

The third former Sales Manager to be promoted is Jarno Honkanen, who has been appointed to the role of Director, Solution Management in a brand-new department. The Solution Management department has been established with the specific aim of enhancing and maintaining the competitiveness of Cimcorp’s automation solutions. Mr. Honkanen explained, “My most important task will be to ensure that our solutions meet – competitively – the evolving needs of customers in both of Cimcorp’s core business areas. This means that the Solution Management department will not only need to work closely with both sales divisions, our R&D departments and our parent group, Murata Machinery, Ltd., but also with customers in both the tyre and warehousing & distribution sectors.”
