US Partners Visit Kiel and the DESIGNA Partner Workshop in Amsterdam


Four of Designa’s US Partners recently visited the DESIGNA headquarters in Kiel, Germany, to gain an overview of production activities and work processes at DESIGNA Verkehrsleittechnik GmbH.  Stefan Koch, DESIGNA CSO, informed them about the latest developments, innovation and trends in the industry, before accompanying them to the 7th DESIGNA Partner Workshop, held April 2nd through 4th in Amsterdam.


Tim Breuning, president of Light & Breuning Inc., a Designa U.S. Business Partner headquartered in Indiana, was one of the attending Partners.  “The Designa Partner Conference in Amsterdam was an excellent opportunity to affirm our confidence in the technological leadership evident in the product line,” explained Breuning. “We shared our knowledge with system integrators from six continents evidencing global resources going forward.”

This event, which directly preceded the Intertraffic trade show, was attended by more than 50 delegates from 20 different countries. The highlights of the workshop comprised DESIGNA’s new ABACUS- X18 feature and the “qinkk” parking app, as well as many other new products from the world of parking. There were also several accompanying activities, such as enjoying a tour of the Sünner brewery in Cologne, and a special Sunday dinner with DESIGNA on board a traditional Amsterdam houseboat.

Stefan Koch summed up his thoughts on the event.  “Many thanks to our partners. Only with their support and work can DESIGNA consolidate its market position and continue to grow successfully during 2016.”
