– a successful partnership
Axelent is a global market leader in machine safety. Soco System is a world leader in packaging products. A few years ago the two companies began a successful partnership within packaging solutions.
Michaela Ahlberg, Sales Manager for Denmark and Norway, Axelent AB:
“We are very satisfied with our collaboration with Soco System. It all began a few years back when, after a good deal of persuasion, I finally got them to test Axelent’s machine guards in connection with a project (they were using another supplier at the time). Not long after I invited them to the parent company in Hillerstorp where they spent two days visiting the production plant and meeting customer service and the management team. I don't know if it was the visit that convinced them of Axelent’s excellence (during the round tour, Calle the plant manager solved some of their customerrelated problems), but this was the start of a very good partnership for all concerned.
One prime example was our delivery of 90 metres of machine guards and ten doors (see drawing above) to a dairy in Egypt. We also sent some extra materials and 16 extra X-locks to supplement / replace existing locks.”
Claus Rasmussen, Project Manager, Soco System A/S:
“We’ve known about Axelent for some time but chose to use other solutions. The technical finesse and the quality of Axelent guards was the perfect match for a large order from a new customer in north Africa. In this case it wasn't the price that was the deciding factor. We switched to Axelent for the quality of a tried and tested product. Axelent partitions are also easy to assemble and install. Smart solutions like X-Key and Cutting Kit are a blessing for assemblers working far from home.”
