New sales organization – introducing directors and managers

With the new year a change in the organization of sales in ARMATURY Group. In the spring of 2021, the management of the Vexve Armatury Group, of which ARMATURY Group is a part, accepted a new strategy for 2021-2024.

The main points of the strategy include a precise definition of the areas in which the group will develop further in the future. These are the five industrial segments: Gas & Hydrogen, Power, Iron & Steel, District Energy and Petrochemical.

In connection with this strategy, Vexve Czechia has made a change in the organization of sales since 1 January 2022, which is now divided according to these segments. Preparation for this change began in the autumn of 2021 with the gradual redistribution of the sales team into three main groups – gas, power and metallurgy, including customer segmentation, preparation of sales plans, business cost plans and distribution of employees into offices.

Toward big goals

Vexve Czechia wants to be the market leader in Central and Eastern Europe, wants to actively develop in Western Europe and beyond Europe, and continue to strengthen its position in the Gulf markets. The main goal of these steps is to provide customers with a better business service, better share and use experience in the production and operation of valves, and overall be successful in each segment. Customer satisfaction remains number one priority.
