Air Power Attends 2019 Gema Symposium

Air Power Manufacturing Solutions was invited to attend Gema’s 2019 Symposium held in a small town nestled in the mountains of Pontresina in Graubünden, Switzerland. Two of Air Power’s application specialists, Travis Stirewalt and Bob Cosey, traveled to Switzerland to represent Air Power at the Symposium. Gema invited distributors from 64 countries around the world to participate in this 4-day experience in the Swiss Alps.

GEMA: HEADQUARTERS

The event kicked off with a visit to the worldwide headquarters of Gema in St. Gallen, Switzerland. The group spent the day having the Gema “Lab Experience” which involved touring the lab facilities and interacting with the many systems they have on display. Gema has everything from small, handheld manual applications to large complex fully automated and robotic systems available in their lab. All the systems are fully operational and show the versatility of the line of equipment that Gema has to offer.

Over the three days, the group spent time in an Educational Forum focused on new Gema products to be released to distributors to launch in April/May 2019. Gema presented groundbreaking projects on automation, gave insights into new sales strategies, and demonstrated important standards on service excellence.

THURSDAY: SNOW GAMES

Gema transported the entire group to a ski lodge located nearby, where they had some special events planned for the day. They spent the morning participating in tubing, snow shoe races and other team building games in the snow while enjoying the beautiful view of the Swiss Alps. Gema used this opportunity to unveil the first manufactured OptiFlex Pro units featuring their new design. The group spent Friday learning all about the features of Gema’s new design and the changes they’ve made to enhance the users experience and improve the OptiFlex system.

We would like to thank Gema for inviting our team out to participate in the 2019 Gema Symposium!
