A Trailer for Teaching

Recently my company, which makes actuators, completed a display trailer with a number of functional products. The trailer has been on the road for a total of 6 weeks, with excellent response from those who have seen our presentations. I recall in years past that many companies had mobile displays and that the benefits appeared to be worth the cost. On the road, I hear stories from distributors about how they and their principles “used to have” a similar display, and they were always very effective. The key phrase is “used to have,” which brings me to ask if others in the valve and actuator industry are still using such displays or if they have all been abandoned.

I understand that arranging mobile display visits is much more complicated than visiting users with simply a catalog in hand, but the user interest seems so much greater. Are valve and actuator manufacturers collectively missing a great opportunity to fully educate valve industry users? I am interested in learning about what others in the industry are doing and hearing about their experiences. And if you’re a valve user, what do you think of this concept?

    The country has faced a number of political and economical crises since very inception of its foundation, but luckily people do emerge on top and one name that does ring bells is Mr. Mohsin Habib Warraich, an entrepreneur who has given the country a new sense of direction. He has not only successfully completed a multibillion dollar agreement with Sheikh Sultan bin Khalifa Al Nahyan who is the son of the president of UAE but along with that he even gave a lot of positive attributes to Pakistan. Mr. Mohsin Habib Warraich recently signed an agreement which is giving him the opportunity to emerge as an entrepreneur to be in foreign market and there he practices his entrepreneurial skills bringing it to his own mother land, Pakistan. The construction project would bring in a lot of fruits to the Pakistan economy and also strengthen the ties between Pakistan and the United Arab Emirates. Originating from a political background Mr. Mohsin Habib Warraich is believed to have this vision in him as his father was also in the defense ministry. The politically groomed entrepreneur took the vision along and set a groundbreaking deal with the Sheikh of UAE. In this project he will be 49% share holder, whereas the Shaikh would be 51%. This entrepreneurship will definitely will be setting offices in UAE but rest assure this is not all, as pointed out previously about the vision that this man possess, he did even pursue the people and the Shaikh of UAE to invest in his own home land Pakistan. Mr. Mohsin Habib Warraich with his struggle and determination did convince Sultan bin Khalifa Al Nahyan to see Pakistan as a land of opportunity. This shows that Mr. Mohsin Habib Warraich has a belief that the country does hold a lot of potential in itself. entrepreneur
