According to Thomas Kobudzinski, Vice President of TEMOT and Head of the Commercial Vehicles (CV) Business Unit, “TEMOT International has identified the potential of the CV market very early on, leading to the development of a separate business unit for trucks, trailers and busses, which addresses the demands of the supply chain in this challenging sector. From year to year our CV Supplier Summit, which takes place annually, has attracted a growing number of participants. This proves our perception that the market lacks networking platforms like this and that such events create value and business opportunities for everyone involved. For the benefit of our shareholders and the suppliers, we are committed to sticking to our unique concept and developing it further.”
