Internationalization as an opportunity - gain a foothold as a supplier abroad
Regardless of whether you want to build up and expand relationships abroad or set up a new location, good preparation is essential in order not to be shipwrecked.
The seminar offers basic knowledge and experience from the automotive and technology perspective from the speaker Christoph Schul, who worked for 20 years in different countries and led OEM projects in development and sales.
The increasing cost pressure on the part of OEMs is one of the main motives for suppliers to relocate or build production facilities abroad. In the future, companies with low-cost locations and thus able to withstand the competition will come into play in the automotive value chain.
On the other hand, many countries impede the movement of goods, services, capital, labor, technology and information through import tariffs and export restrictions.
The current corona crisis does the rest and slows down the globalization trend. Countries are decoupling and taking steps to protect domestic businesses, goods and workers.
All of this reduces the profitability of many local companies. In order to increase sales and have a global presence, many companies have no choice but to provide their goods and services locally.
It is precisely this internationalization of business activities that poses great practical challenges for many small and medium-sized companies.
