The system supplier Rema Tip Top is significantly expanding its conveyor belt business. That’s why the company has brought aboard a sales professional with many years of international experience in the conveyor belt business. With Bertrand Heckel as the new Director Global Belting Sales, the system provider is restructuring its international sales organization in the field of conveyor belts and pushing ahead with expanding its market position.
As Director Global Belting Sales, Bertrand Heckel is now in charge of managing international sales of conveyor belts at Rema Tip Top. The industry insider has over 30 years of experience held in leading international sales positions as well as in the management of global corporations. Bertrand Heckel shall report directly to the Management Board of Rema Tip Top AG in his new position. In addition to heading up the global conveyor belt sales team, he shall also be responsible for actively managing the conveyor belt brands and the corporation’s product portfolio as well as overseeing the relevant sales and marketing channels.
Bertrand Heckel is familiar with the core markets of the international conveyor belt business and has actively influenced market development for many years. “With a total annual sales volume of more than 5 billion € and good growth perspectives, the global conveyor belt market offers us huge potential,” says Bertrand Heckel. „In the future, we hope to further expand our market position, increase market penetration with higher sales and significantly increase our profitability. We make it possible for our customers to increase their competitiveness by cooperating in partnerships for the operation of conveyor technology systems and facilities and wear protection.”
In addition to Europe and North America’s established markets, he sees strong growth potential in newly emerging regions, such as India, China, Southeast Asia, and Latin America. “Due to the increasing consumption of energy, economic growth in Asian countries will lead to a growing demand for coal,” says Heckel. There’s also accelerated demand for steel and cement in the booming construction industry. In South America, however, the mining industry is the key driver of growth. “Here, we will invest our combined strength and know-how to offer our customers customized, comprehensive solutions with Rema Tip Top’s combined portfolio of efficient and sustainable products and services.”
