Robin Ohle, Managing Director at EFB-Elektronik
In 2000, EFB-Elektronik responded to his job application and offered him a position in financial management. The father of two originally came from a commercial background with a focus on IT, but had already spent a large part of his career in finance and accounting at that time - so the area of responsibility offered was a good fit for him. Since the Herford native also found the company extremely appealing, he was happy to accept the challenge.
He continuously developed the finance area and, among other things, also accompanied the sale of the company to the TKH Group. After nine years with the company, he finally expanded his field of activity as the new commercial manager to include areas such as human resources, IT and management systems, until he was ultimately given the opportunity to take over the position as managing director in 2015.
Success factors at EFB-Elektronik
However, our high availability of goods, which is often decisive for our customers' purchases, is also very important. Our warehouses are always well stocked so that we can supply our customers reliably and on time even in the event of supply bottlenecks. And this is "despite" our very broad portfolio, which in itself represents another important success factor and sets us apart from competitors.
Our own production facilities also create flexibility in terms of special requests.
Last but not least, our diverse and solid partnerships also contribute to our success: First and foremost, the strong backing of the TKH Group. But also our suppliers and logistics partners, with whom we have been working in a trusting relationship, in some cases for many years. Our financial strength also contributes to the reliability of our company vis-à-vis them - and is thus certainly another important success factor.
Focus on solutions for the industry
Not least because of our long-standing partnerships, our sales team always knows exactly where the goods come from. This also plays an essential role under quality assurance points; our quality controls are sharp.
In addition, our own manufacturing facilities and logistics set us significantly apart from other competitors.
That's EFB-Elektronik from my point of view.
Sustainability and energy efficiency are top priorities for us.
Take a breath - find solutions
Solution orientation inspires me just as much as destructiveness does the opposite. When I see that my colleagues are enthusiastic and passionate about their work, I also gain strength for my own role.
Of course, a major contribution to recharging my batteries also comes from my private life. I like to travel: from family vacations by the sea to individual trips in Asia, I do it all. My big goal:
Mount Everest. In general, I spend a lot of time in the fresh air and like to hike - as a dog lover, preferably in four-legged company.
All these activities help me to take a step back and create a balance. Even if one or two weekends have certainly been "wasted" on work. Ultimately, however, the balance between work and free time has to be right for me in order to stay productive in the long term.
