Managing Director Hans Gatzemeier welcomes the new employees for North America: Daniel Melcher and Steve O Stewart

ELA Container Offshore GmbH announced that two new employees have joined the company to expand its activities in North America. From the founding in August 2014 the company now counts nine employees.

“Next to our Sales Representative in the Netherlands we decided to establish a presence in North America, mainly Houston, TX, to be able to expand our activities within the Oil and Gas industry”, Managing Director of ELA Container Offshore GmbH, Hans Gatzemeier, said.

Within the first six months the new employees will complete a training at the headquarter in Haren (Ems), Germany, to learn everything about the container business: from production and transportation up to assembly and customer service. According to Hans Gatzemeier these basics are essential for explaining and highlighting the different types of ELA Offshore Containers and its benefits to potential clients. “Working in a ‘Blue-collar’ in the production line helps to get familiar with the container and its structure by heart. This training gives me great insights that I will need for my future tasks”, new Business Development Manager at ELA Container Offshore GmbH, Daniel Melcher, said.

“Beginning of May we will visit the OTC in Houston and a participation in the next year is also in planning. This offers the opportunity for our new Business Development Managers to make and maintain contacts on site”, Marketing Manager at ELA Container Offshore GmbH, Katharina Pleus, said. During the OTC 2015, first meetings with clients and potential customers have been arranged already. As of mid June –after completing the training- the two Business Development Managers will start their activities in Houston, TX, introduce the ELA Container Offshore GmbH and highlight the various advantages of the different Offshore Container types.
