The OHAUS Corporation, a leading manufacturer of balances and scales for industrial, laboratory, education and specialty markets worldwide, announces several new additions, including the appointment of Jean-Yves Chever as Vice President of Sales & Marketing for the company’s North American operations, and the initiation of the OhausEZ Distributor Program.
Chever has extensive international sales, marketing and OHAUS experience, first joining OHAUS in 2001 as Manager of OHAUS France and Benelux, based in Paris, France. In 2005, Chever was appointed General Manager of OHAUS Europe and OHAUS Online, based in Zurich, Switzerland.
“OHAUS’ international growth was boosted by Jean-Yves because he recognized the importance of meeting customers’ needs. That philosophy will continue to guide us in North America,” said Ted Xia, President of OHAUS Corporation. “Jean-Yves’ expertise, knowledge and experience with the OHAUS brand will prove beneficial for both our valued customers and dealers.”
OHAUSEZ Distributor Program Launched
Also new for 2009 is the OHAUSEZ Distributor Program, which combines a broad range of new weighing products with an “EZ” to use dealer-direct Web site that offers online ordering and support, and access to the most complete line of weighing products in the industry.
When using the new OHAUSEZ program, OHAUS dealers will have access to a number of benefits including complete support from quote to installation, field sales support by an OHAUS Regional Sales Manager and dedicated Customer Service Representative, industry tradeshow participation, print and Web-based trade advertising, and more.
“The OHAUSEZ Distributor Program is a great extension to the strong support we offer our dealers,” said Chever. “This new program will not only help us to maintain strong relationships with our current dealers, but also to build new partnerships. I expect the OHAUSEZ Distributor program to be a great success for OHAUS and for our dealers. OHAUS has always been known for its value and dealer support, and we are dedicated to standing by our partners and strengthening our commitment to them throughout the current economic situation,” said Chever.”
The OHAUSEZ Distributor Program (ohausEZ.com) will incorporate a number of key components, all aimed toward providing greater ease and access for OHAUS dealers. Once online, program users will gain access to account information, real-time inventory updates for quoting and fast turnaround, ”round the clock” hours of operation for ordering anytime, “EZ” order tracking, and other ideal solutions.
