To further expand market presence in North America, 3W-International is expanding its own direct sales structure in this important target market. With Constantin Diehl, a representative has been acquired who will actively represent the German engine manufacturer in the USA, Canada, and Mexico.
“We look forward to having Constantin Diehl, an excellent connoisseur of the North American UAS scene, on board”, remarks Karsten Schudt, managing director of 3W-International GmbH. Diehl has been president of Clusters UAS Colorado since 2013, and is thus engaged in various areas of unmanned air travel. He was previously active in sales for German automotive suppliers in the USA and Germany. “Many of our customer projects require strong sales-orientated project management, which Constantin brings with him via his professional experience”, according to Schudt.
This is especially important for the German engine manufacturer, because the company places value on great customer orientation and customer loyalty. “3W-International is the last remaining German 2-stroke combustion-engine manufacturer in the UAS industry. All of the others are meanwhile in Chinese hands. That means Made in Germany quality is exactly what our customers demand from us. But we can only do this if we communicate closely with the customer and know what current and future requirements he imposes on our products”, continues Schudt.
Diehl will support both sales project management and marketing for North America. “I look forward to collaborate with 3W-International. The company has a good reputation, and is known for its engine quality and innovation”, according to Diehl. Beginning in April, Diehl will support customers in the USA, Canada, and Mexico from Denver as a direct contact person.
With more than 35 years of experience in designing, manufacturing and testing 2-stroke engines, 3W-International GmbH has developed and patented the newest generation of Heavy Fuel (HF) engines for the Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) industry.
The quality of 3W engines stems from several factors. Technical expertise, long-term experience, tradition, and state-of-the-art production are the reasons for one of the highest qualities in the industry. 3W is opposed to manufacturing abroad, so customers can be sure every engine is of German quality.
From R&D, prototyping, purchasing, manufacturing, and calibration to in-time delivery, 3W guarantees constant and permanent quality control. Every manufacturing step is traceable. Employees are personally responsible for the fulfillment of 3W quality standards. Component suppliers and partners share these standards and guarantee these quality requirements.
