Three questions to...

...Dr. Detlef Gaiser

Dr. Detlef Gaiser about Heraeus Chemicals

Dr. Gaiser, what does your job at Heraeus entail?

As a Technical Sales Manager, I talk to our customers to identify their technical requirements for our products. Then I can compare the customer's wishes with our portfolio and potentially work with our development department to prepare an individual sample for the customer.

When I do this, I find that it's important to understand the customer's processes. The more information the customer shares with us, the more precisely we can develop a catalyst or chemical product to offer as a sample—and the faster and better the outcome will be for the customer. I find it very exciting to figure out what the customer needs and find the missing piece for their puzzle.

In your opinion, what is Heraeus’ greatest strength?

Heraeus has fantastic access to precious metals. Not many companies in the world can say the same. At the drop of a hat, we can come up with all eight precious metals as well as various salts and compounds of each precious metal. As a result, we can explore a wide range of possibilities and offer solutions that are not available to others.

What are your expectations for your visit to the Chemspec in Cologne?

I am looking forward to many interesting discussions at the Chemspec - the more technical, the better. People can exchange information more easily in a personal conversation, and sometimes dig deeper into technical aspects as well. Of course, I would be especially pleased to generate new business. But I would also like to meet our existing customers at the trade fair and talk with them about current developments.”

...Karola Schönhals

Karola Schönhals

Ms. Schönhals, what is particularly important to you when interacting with customers?

As the Head of Sales for Chemical Catalysts for the EMEA and APAC regions at Heraeus, I particularly emphasize trust-based collaboration with customers. Our customers’ information are used only for their benefit. That is especially relevant for customers in this increasingly competitive environment. This is a key difference between Heraeus and other companies—we are not competing with our own customers.

I am also always happy when our products and services create added value for our customers.

And how do you create this added value?

We work every day to improve our products and increase efficiency for our customers. We focus on innovative capacity. We have our own test facilities so that we can reproduce our customers’ processes and offer an optimized catalyst. That saves the customers a good deal on testing.

At Heraeus, we have a broad knowledge of precious metals. We follow market developments, discuss and advise our clients to ensure that they have what they need at the right time.

What are your expectations for the Chemspec trade fair in Cologne?

I am particularly looking forward to meeting new customers who use carrier catalysts for hydrogenation and oxidation reactions at Chemspec. Trade shows are always a good opportunity to increase our brand recognition and cultivate contacts. I’m looking forward to interesting conversations and opportunities for new partnerships.
