Arobotech Systems is proud to announce we have expanded the relationship with our existing European service partner GSN in Stödtlen, Germany, to serve as our exclusive sales representative in the European market. Effective June 3, 2019, Philipp Rief, GSN CEO, will serve as our direct sales contact for Europe.

This relationship will provide Arobotech with access to significant industry knowledge and expertise as we continue to provide our customers with the best steady rest solutions in the world. Common core values of precision, quality and world class customer service make this expanded relationship a natural fit.

Ulrich Lenz, Arobotech’s European sales agent for the last 18 years, will assist Philipp and the entire GSN team with the transition of Arobotech Europe sales responsibilities through September 2019. Both Arobotech and GSN wish Uli well as he embarks on a new journey outside of the grinding industry to close out the final chapter of his professional career.
