At Fabriano, VDE Global Services Italy offers a wide range of technical service solutions for household appliances and commercial devices as well as automatic electrical controls for domestic use. “We support manufacturers of household appliances and commercial devices as well as automatic electrical controls in Italy who not only want to launch their products in the local market but in the international one as well – the website of VDE Global Services Italy explains -. Furthermore, we offer testing and certification according to international procedures and advise clients on standards and guidelines. During the entire testing and certification process, our competent employees assist clients both technically and administratively. In collaboration with local partner laboratories and the resulting opportunity to conduct tests directly in Italy, we not only reduce the test cycle times and thus, the test duration as a whole, but costs as well. Furthermore, VDE Global Services conducts a detailed and personalized evaluation of each customer, including and primarily from an economic standpoint”. The presence of VDE Global Services at Fabriano demonstrates VDE’s interest in investing in Italy and the Fabriano branch is the only one in Europe in addition to the parent company in Germany. Now VDE Global Services Italy looks ahead and, as reported by Radio Gold, among the projects for the future expressed by Marcello Manfredi, Managing Director VDE Global Services Italy, there is also the idea of creating a synergy with the VDE branches in China, Japan and Korea by organizing a meeting at Fabriano.
