EASA and other networks and organizations
As a globally renowned manufacturer of electric motors, MENZEL is part of various networks, organizations and associations such as EASA.
SMEs with an international focus – just like MENZEL – greatly appreciate the opportunities offered by large networks and organizations. Inter alia, MENZEL Elektromotoren GmbH is a member of the EASA (Electrical Apparatus Service Association), the AEMT (Association of Electrical and Mechanical Trades), the VME (Verband der Metall- und Elektroindustrie Berlin-Brandenburg – Association of the Berlin-Brandenburg Metalworking and Electrical Industries), the ZVEH (Zentralverband der Deutschen Elektro- und Informationstechnischen Handwerke – German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers' Association), and the VDI (Verein Deutscher Ingenieure – German Association of Engineers).
EASA - Electrical Apparatus Service Association
The EASA (Electrical Apparatus Service Association) was founded in the USA in 1933, and now has over 1900 members from 62 countries. MENZEL has been an active member of the EASA for several years. The organization is a leader in sales, maintenance and repairs of electrical and mechanical devices. It provides members worldwide with market information and training opportunities, and helps them to establish themselves as providers of complete solutions for mechanical and electrical equipment and systems.
One of the biggest advantages of being a member is access to EASA’s outstanding technical support team. My employees and I have already attended several EASA seminars, and booked onto webinars. We always learn something new, which indeed ultimately benefits our customers.
The EASA employs its own engineers, who can provide technical support to member companies when specific problems arise.They provide information on current industry standards, such as the production of electric sheets and wires, as well as testing machinery. The EASA relies on many years of experience for the maintenance and repair of electrical machinery, if no uniform standard exists.
EASA has at its disposal: comprehensive documentation and databases, records of winding data, operating data from machines and drives, information on bearing lubricants, manufacturer contacts, and type lists. In addition, the organization offers tutorials, training courses and webinars, e.g. about explosion protection.
We are very proud to announce that Oliver Semmler of MENZEL Elektromotoren has won the Karsten Hoholt Achievement Award in 2017.
MENZEL’s presidency of EASA Region 9
The EASA is divided up into ten regions worldwide. Region 9 (“European & World”) consists of Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Scandinavia. Mathis Menzel began his two-year presidency on 09.27.2014. Members of EASA Region 9 generate an average annual turnover of approx. €1.27 billion.
The importance of being organized as part of an international industrial network is steadily increasing in these times of internationalization for our markets and communicative structures. When it joined 30 years ago, MENZEL saw EASA membership at a logical step for communicating with other companies in the electric motor sector and moving with the times.
The services are very varied and unique in their own way – from resolving technical issues, to training programs, to knowledge sharing. They help us to save time and money. A competitive advantage, as we have the interests of our business partners at heart.
