Rob Price has just returned from a visit to GIS AG in Switzerland, located about an hour outside Zurich in Schötz, where he completed his GIS Sales Training Course.

The training course covered the NEW GP range, NEW trolley range, GIS KB Crane systems and special products such as ATEX and Food grade hoists.  Rob who previously worked at LTM in 2014, returned to LTM at the start of 2019 as Technical Industrial Sales.


Rob commented about the visit "It was a great refresher course to back up my existing knowledge of GIS products, especially with my return to LTM coinciding with the launch of the new GP Hoists".


Rob enjoyed a tour of the GIS offices where he met the GIS export sales team and technical department, who Rob liaises with on a daily basis.  Rob says "Meeting the GIS team will enhance the great working relationship".


Rob was then given a tour of the warehouse and production facilities, where he was shown the machining area where several apprentices were working alongside fully qualified technicians machining gears and components. 


He was then shown the production process of both GP and GCH electric chain hoist models which are assembled at the production site in Schotz.


Rob commented "It was great to see the whole process of the hoist assembly.  The process runs smoothly, and efficient, typical of premium Swiss production lines.  GIS really supports the local community; of the 110 employees it employs approximately 20 apprentices.
