Logistics solutions provider’s Vice President of Aftermarket Operations recognized for expertise in the supply chain and warehouse automation industries

York, PA— Feb. 23, 2018 — Westfalia Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of logistics solutions for plants, warehouses and distribution centers since 1992, announces that Vice President of Aftermarket Operations, Wolfram von Schoen, has been recognized as a 2018 Provider Pro to Know by Supply & Demand Chain Executive for his expertise in the supply chain and warehouse automation industries.

The Pros to Know Awards recognize supply chain executives, and manufacturing and non-manufacturing enterprises, that are leading initiatives to help prepare their companies’ supply chains for the significant challenges of today’s business climate. This year’s list includes more than 200 individuals from software firms and service providers, consultancies or academia, who helped their supply chain clients or the supply chain community at large prepare to meet these challenges—and more than 30 Practitioner Pros, who do the same within their own companies.

As the vice president of aftermarket operations, von Schoen spearheads Westfalia’s after sales organization in North and South America. Additionally, von Schoen and his team work with customers to provide proactive system support. Proactive service eliminates most reactive maintenance events for Westfalia customers and ensures the longevity of their automated equipment — keeping businesses running and protecting the customer’s long-term investment.

Wolfram von Schoen, Westfalia Technologies’ vice president of aftermarket operations, said, “One of the biggest challenges within the supply chain-side of business is the coordination and understanding of the interconnections between all departments within an organization. Companies need to build a team where employees at all levels are flexible enough to welcome change, but are also consistent in implementing and meeting defined standards. This will create a team that is willing to go above and beyond, if needed, to add value to other areas of the organization and to ensure the success of any new process implementation.”
