“I did my research and was impressed at the level of quality and service from Elring Gaskets. They truly get what it takes to be a global leader in sealing science. I am looking forward to building long-term partnerships between Elring Gaskets and the best-in-class heavy-duty distribution,” says Jeff Guenther, new sales manager Heavy-Duty. “The on and off highway HD vehicle is an asset on a balance sheet, they are very well maintained and rebuilt when required. Driving this business through our distribution channels will be the challenge. There is a substantial opportunity that we can grow together with our key distribution customers.”

Service and order fill are paramount to Elring, with plans to double its logistic capacity to support the growth of our customers,” says Harald Reinhardt, Euro sales manager and Aftermarket Distribution manager.

“The development of our capacity and ability to scale up, has been in full swing as the market responds to Elring as a premium gasket supplier. We will continue to offer our customers in the US and CN a unique combination of first-class OEM products combined with first-class service,” explains William Atkinson, U.S.-based national sales manager. “Our growth has been strong with our focus on customer service, EDI and improved logistics. We are planning to announce our second U.S. distribution center location very soon. Elring will continue to pour in resources, to support effective sales efforts of our distribution partners.”
