Under the motto of 'People, Products, Partnership', NSK recently hosted the latest
edition of its prestigious European Distributor Convention at the stunning coastal
resort of Giardini Naxos in Sicily. Taking place across 18-21 October 2023, the event
attracted most of NSK's distribution partners from 22 countries across Europe, all
keen to learn about new company and product developments.
Due to the pandemic, this year's event was the first since 2019, when the Croation city of
Dubrovnik played host. The principal purpose of the 2023 gathering was to inform NSK's
Authorised Distributors about the company's latest innovations and organisational changes.
Of course, the convention also provided excellent networking opportunities. In addition,
attendees had the opportunity to join an excursion to Mount Etna, one of the tallest active
volcanos in Europe. A total of 30 jeeps took delegates up the volcano, where they were
regaled with interesting facts about this world-famous geological landmark.
A number of senior NSK executives at the company's European Industrial Business Unit
delivered presentations across the three-day convention. Among them was Paul Cranston,
European Aftermarket Director, who commented,“Having such an opportunity to engage
with our key customers was extremely valuable and helps us maintain focus on the things
that really matter to our partners, hence the event's theme: People, Products, Partnership.
We are proud that the feedback from our partners was very open and positive.”
Among those partners was Des Fox, owner of Ireland-based NSK Europe Authorised
Distributor E. Fox Engineers. Mr Fox commented,“It was a very informative NSK European
Distributor Convention. Well done to all who organised both the day itself and the other
events, which were spectacular. NSK always speaks very honestly and openly, which is
refreshing for such a large manufacturer. The location was perfect at a good time of year,
with NSK delivering brilliant attention to detail for the whole event.”
NSK only works with authorised distributors and dealers who have the market knowledge
and experience needed to meet its expected standards. With this strategy, NSK can ensure
end users receive quality-assured products, quick and reliable order processing, and
comprehensive engineering support.
NSK Europe will host its next European Distributor Convention in 2025. Information
regarding the location and date will follow in due course.
