INA goes to EU

Vanessa Fortune and Jason Gray from INA were invited to see and take part in the inter workings of the IREKS headquarters in Kulmbach in July.

As is tradition in the IREKS onboarding and training program, new employees are invited to visit the Head Office in Kulmbach, Germany. The 4 day program allows staff to be trained in the methods of IREKS and use this experience to better the presence of IREKS at the global subsidiaries and better understand all that we as an organization have to offer the bakery industry.

Vanessa Fortune, Head of Research and Development, and Jason Gray, Director of Sales, from INA were invited to participate this past July 14 - 19th and see and take part in the inter workings of the magnificent facility and attend a variety of meetings and sessions that showcase the vast array of services and value adds we can offer the customer in the bakery industry.

Over the course of the 5 days spent in the Upper Franconia region of Bavaria, we were treated to some wonderful experiences outside the factory site of IREKS, including bakery tours, scenic flights, superb local cuisine, sightseeing, shopping, and, of course, one of Germany's greatest contributions to the world, the fabulous BEER!

The purpose of the trip was not only to better engage in the various departments relative to our roles at IREKS, but also to experience and understand what a "customer trip" to Kulmbach looks like through the eyes of a guest of IREKS. We were not disappointed by the unbelievable company tour that showcased our state of the art production facility that runs like a finely tuned BMW, to the warehouse and logistics team that can move nearly 10,000 pallets at any given time and, of course, to our core business the Sourdough and Malt production that is currently undergoing an amazing upgrade to make the customer experience even more outstanding. And, of course, the IREKS Technical Centre, where the heart of IREKS quality is developed and shared with customers and employees from around the globe.

The organization and schedule for the week was "first class" and I know that both myself and Vanessa will cherish the time we had in Germany. We look forward to 2020 and to bringing the Canadian contingent of customers to our fabulous Head Office, so they too can see what an advantage it is to be part of the IREKS family.

Thank you!

Jason & Vanessa
