Swiss merger BMF Group takes over Gangloff Cabins

The Bartholet Group has expanded its range of offers by integrating the Gangloff Cabin segment. This makes it a full-scale provider in the areas of cable railway construction, amusement park facilities, cabin construction, road train systems and special constructions. This next development step of the corporate group in Flums is based on the maxim “Swiss Quality – From a single source for all customers worldwide”. 

Gangloff Cabins AG is a family enterprise that was founded in Bern in the year 1928 with its specialisation in the construction and manufacture of wagons and cabins for funicular railways and aerial cableways, gondolas for gondola cableways as well as custom products. Much like the BMF Group AG which works in the areas of cable railways, amusement park facilities and mechanical engineering, Gangloff Cabins AG is an enterprise that is also very strongly anchored in Switzerland with ever widening international activities. Given the immense know-how of the two Swiss companies and their competent staff members, all manufacturing and assembly works – from development, engineering and construction through production up to the end-product – can now be performed by a single source. Gangloff Cabins will further remain an independent company in the market for all customers. In addition to newly-made products, customer service and spare parts supply for all Gangloff products will also be further expanded. A new production locality is being planned for Gangloff Cabins in the medium term to ensure continued upgrade and lean production. 

Thomas Spiegelberg will take over the executive management of Gangloff Cabins. The present management of Gangloff Cabins, led by Marc and Regina Pfister, will continue to work at Gangloff Cabins and further develop the company within the BMF Group. Staff members will be offered additional perspectives in terms of market and product expansion. Gangloff Cabins will be able to produce its high-class products anew in an enterprise within the BMF Group. 

Against this background, we jointly look forward to a successful future and are grateful to our customers for the trust they continue to place in us.

Great Success with the Public at Alpitec China/ISPO Beijing 2014

The double tradeshow Alpitec China, the Tradeshow for Mountain and Winter Technologies, and ISPO Beijing, the Tradeshow for Brands in Sports, Fashion, and Lifestyle in Asia, was held from February 19 to 22 in Beijing.  With thirty thousand visitors, representing an increase of eight percent in comparison to the previous year, all participants were very pleased.

The Italian ambassador in Beijing, Dr. Alberto Bradanini, paid a visit to the various Italian exhibitors and expressed his appreciation to them for their entrepreneurial commitment that that have shown in Asia.  At a discussion in the Alpitec China pavilion with the general managers of the Munich International Trade Fairs, Klaus Dittrich, and the Bolzano/Bozen Exhibition Center, Reinhold Marsoner, the topic of (Italian) apple exports to China was also discussed, as was a possible collaboration within the framework of Interpoma, the International Tradeshow for the Cultivation, Storage, and Marketing of Apples, organized by the Bolzano/Bozen Exhibition Center. 

    The fifty exhibitors from eleven countries of the Asian branch of the Tradeshow for Mountain and Winter Technologies, Alpitec China, were thoroughly satisfied with the event and convinced by the renewed upswing in Asia.  That was also emphasized by Dieter Miller, sales manager with Reichmann: “The tradeshow went very well.  The most important visitors from the sector were there, with the corresponding quality.  We’re expecting a positive post-tradeshow business.  We met with both new and existing customers.” 

    Also joining in this view was the senior management consultant from Pola Solution, Richard Wyne: “We are enthusiastic about this tradeshow.  We had good contacts with a variety of visitors in the field.  We will also exhibit here in coming years in any case and will continue to take advantage of this tradeshow in order to gain a foothold in the Chinese market.” 

    Thomas Bergmann, key account manager of export sales with Fatzer, explained, “The target group is exactly right.  We were able to greet many decision makers at our stand.  The exhibition area of Alpitec China is still relatively small, but it has great potential for development.” 

    Cesare Locatelli, area sales manager for Prinoth, was convinced: “The development of the tradeshow is positive, as the entire ski market in China is on the upswing.  Tradeshows are always good opportunities to meet with existing contacts and to make new ones.”

    Since 2009, the product show has been accompanied by the international Asia Pacific Snow Conference, which in 2014 once again took place on the second day of the tradeshow, Thursday, February 20.  This year, around a hundred visitors took part, primarily from China itself.  At the forefront were topics such as safety technology in China and service orientation as criteria for success with summer and winter tourism.  In fitting with the Winter Olympics in Sochi that likewise came to an end on that weekend, the French association Cluster Montagne emphasized the great possibilities that result for a location which hosts the Olympic Games.  Using examples (Chamonix-Mont-Blanc in 1924, Grenoble in 1968, and Albertville in 1992), the great changes in economy and technology, both for the inhabitants and for tourism, were illuminated.

    Safety on the mountain was the central theme in the exhibition area of Alpitec China 2014.  The rescue shows that were put on up to four times a day were the most visited highlight of the exhibition.  The simulation of the evacuation of a Poma cable car cabin was organized together with SALEWA China and TIS innovation park South Tyrol and was carried out by the Beijing Mountain Rescue Team.

    The next edition of Alpitec China and ISPO Beijing will take place from January 26 to 29, 2015 in Beijing.
