ELA Offshore welcomes new employees for international expansion: Business Development Managers for Northern Europe and the Middle East

Seif El Guindy recently joined the ELA Offshore Team as Business Development Manager Middle East

Already in January and May Hans Gatzemeier welcomed two new international sales employees: Fabian Brands and Niels Albers

ELA Container Offshore GmbH announced that three new employees have joined the company to expand its international activities. Since its founding in August 2014 the company now counts 15 employees. “Next to our Sales Representative in the Netherlands and Belgium we decided to expand our activities within Northern Europe and the Middle East”, Managing Director of ELA Container Offshore GmbH, Hans Gatzemeier, says.

Within the first six months the new employees will complete a training at the headquarters in Haren (Ems), Germany, to learn everything about the offshore 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 Northern Europe at ELA Container Offshore GmbH, Niels Albers, explains.

Also the Middle East region will now be served by a Business Development Manager. Seif El Guindy recently joined the team and is doing his traineeship in Germany right now. “For me this new job is a very exciting opportunity and challenge. I arrived from Egypt last week and already fell in love with Germany”, Seif El Guindy comments on his new job as Business Development Manager Middle East at ELA Container Offshore GmbH. The ELA group already has a subsidiary in Dubai, Seif El Guindy will join the local team to expand offshore business within that region.
