On 06.11.2019 the official inauguration of the new business premises of our Chinese customer JASBLU SHANGHAI CO. LTD. took place. We were also invited to the inauguration ceremony. Dr Schulz, Mr Yaprak from the management and Mr Schwarz as sales manager travelled to Shanghai and seized the chance to get in touch with all our contact persons personally. We were very pleased to have such a great opportunity to get to know our business partner JASBLU at this extraordinary event and to set the course for a common long-term and successful business relationship.
Cleaning tablets on the way to Shanghai
23. August, 2019
At the beginning of August 2019, our first container with cleaning tablets for coffee machines went on its sea voyage to Shanghai.
The prehistory: After several preliminary talks, the management of Schulz und Sohn met with a Chinese company active in the gastronomy sector at the end of March 2018 at HOTELEX – an international trade fair for the hospitality industry – in Shanghai. Here they had the opportunity to get to know each other personally and to talk about establishing a joint business relationship.
The negotiations finally were successful, so that we can now proudly report that the first 40-foot container with cleaning tablets for commercial coffee machines is on its way to Rotterdam and will be shipped from there to Shanghai. At the beginning of September 2019, our customer can receive the goods there.
We are very confident that this will develop into a stable German-Chinese business relationship.
Schulz & Sohn is passionate about the Henley Royal Regatta
22. July, 2019
The Regatta this year took place from the 3rd until the 7th of July. The event – the Wimbledon of rowing – has been held annually for 180 years over a distance of one mile and 550 yards (2,112 km). It is an eagerly awaited event in rowing-crazy England. The whole of Henley-on-Thames is in high mood during the 5 days – not least because it has been a fixed date on the Royal Family’s agenda since 1851.
As the regatta course on the Thames is not wide, the participating teams compete in 23 events in a knock-out system with two boats until the winner of the competition is determined. The regatta culminates in the finals, which all take place on the last Sunday. This year 660 international teams in all boat categories from single skulls to the king’s class, the rowing eight, competed with each other in thrilling races. They were appropriately supported and honoured by stylishly dressed onlookers on the banks of the Thames. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZP3TGL3TnQ=GZP3TGL3TnQ
What takes Schulz & Sohn to Henley-on-Thames?
Schulz & Sohn also had reason to be excited this year because we supported a team from our region, the Rhineland. The eights crew of the Bonner Ruder-Gesellschaft entered the “Thames Cup” to compete against 31 opponents. Their boat was branded with the Schulz & Sohn company logo and claim, as well as the motto: “United we stand”. We watched the races of “our” boat with great excitement and were not without pride when the team made it to the semi-finals.
We congratulate the team from Bonn for their outstanding performance and of course the winners of the competition, the team of the Roeivereeniging students Vreie Universiteit Okeanos from the Netherlands. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Un-Jt2VCkNM
Why are we involved in this sport?
It fits: Competitive rowing is in line with our values and has long been practiced by us. We experience in this activity – as in our company – fairness, team spirit and sporting competition. And, last but not least, it is a sign of our solidarity with our English customers and business partners. We are proud of our message, “United we stand”. Brexit or not.
