Kew was invited by Gewiss UK to visit the manufacturing facilities, research laboratories and logistics centres where it designs, builds and distributes its leading industrial electrical and lighting solutions for the international market, including the UK.
Kew learnt more about Gewiss’s origins as an innovator in plastics technology, that led to the company’s focus on developing low voltage electrical solutions such as industrial plugs and sockets, and enclosures. They also had the opportunity to test brand new products such as Gewiss’ industrial LED lighting, and provide their valuable feedback to the manufacturer.
It was not all work, as the visitors were also treated to a spot of sightseeing in the ancient town of Bergamo and a trip to the stunning Lake Garda.
Managing director of Kew, Geoff Kerly said of his experience, ‘We thoroughly enjoyed our trip behind the scenes of Gewiss’ international operations. We were impressed with the investment in the company’s research and development, and the company’s busy, efficient logistics hub. There are some great, new high-quality products coming down the line.’
Gino Stocchetti, Gewiss UK’s new general manager, said, ‘It was great to have a group of guests who really appreciated what Gewiss produces and how it is run. It was also useful to spend valuable time getting to know Kew better and finding out what is important to them.’
