From 1st of August Thorsten Sander (ex-Sales Representative of Raiffeisen Gartenbau, Germany) is the new Sales Manager for the Dutch young plant producing company, Schneider youngplants and will be responsible for customers in Germany. He has been specialising in the distribution and assortment of young plants for over 20 years.
“Thorsten is a specialist in the youngplants market, whom we have known and collaborated with for many years. Of up-most importance for Schneider is the trusting relationship and shared values both personally and professionally. Thorsten as sales leader in Germany (and German-speaking areas), will breathe new life into the area and provide Schneider with a new chapter for its sales and customer relationships. Whilst Schneider is building a 3.6 ha new glasshouse in Woudrichem – Holland, measures are in place in Germany so that Thorsten will be able to provide the grower with an even better service.” - Jacob Schneider
The decision was also welcomed by our German partners; Udo Böhmer and his team feel very positive and supportive of the decision. “Thorsten Sander has worked for SteBe, later Raiffeisen Gartenbau, for many years and has grown very closely with Schneider youngplants. He is technically astute and is a really patient colleague with very good social skills. We see this as a very effective collaboration. In the future, together we will create product ranges that are relevant to the specific German Market reflecting changing trends and customise the lists to reflect our customers needs. We are very pleased that Thorsten is now our direct contact.” - Udo Böhmer
