A quick headstart

De Soet Consulting offers Business Center with everything a company could possibly need

The concept of a Business Center has become very popular and common the past few years – for a good reason. Whether as a short term or a long term solution, the offices are completely equipped with a perfect office infrastructure and high qualified employees.

This opportunity can give young entrepreneurs a quick headstart in the industry, especially compared to competitors who rather build up their own office first. Entrepreneurs who decide to rent office space at a Business Center have a lot of possiblities. They can choose from a broad range of high-quality equipment, different office sizes and help from experienced staff on demand without hiring anybody. The obvious benefits are the big savings and it helps the entrepreneur to focus on the actual business rather than on which desk to buy.

This is a perfect solution if you want to expand your business to a different region, for example Switzerland. It is simple, uncomplicated and cheap. You don’t have any launching costs, no investments and a flexible term of lease. Rieta de Soet, the CEO of De Soet Consulting in Switzerland says, the availability of offices in a Business Center is a great benefit for companies coming from abroad also, because they get all the help they need from the employees who speak the local language and know the country, culture and costums.

Furthermore De Soet Consulting offers an individual telephone service, backoffice, marketing service, translating services, conference rooms and helps building up your marketing organization.

No matter what your needs are, De Soet Consulting offers a personal and professional service to absolutely amazing prices, says Dr. Fabian de Soet.

Connecting people

Business Center help to build up strong contacts

Connecting people

One building, many offices and opportunities

In a time of globalization it has become very vital to build up a strong network of contacts. The right contacts are often the key to a successful business. At first it is not as important to find people from the same branch as it may seem. Sometimes a person, who does not seem to be very helpful is the key factor to get a foot in the door. Often it takes years until you make use of your contacts, which is why you have to stay in touch, because you never know where the future will lead you. Some of your contacts might change the branch, start working for a different company, gets promoted or starts his or her own company.

Rieta de Soet, CEO of Global Management Consultants AG, helps her clients to get in touch with people from different branches. Ms. de Soet says that she likes connecting people and companies, escpecially because she knows a lot of people and she is always happy to bring different companies together. Fabian de Soet continues, that this is one of the many benefits of working at a Business Center.

Finding Business contacts is often called „networking“. The last couple of years special events for networking have developed. „Easy networking“ is designed for people and companies in certain branches, so that they connect with the right people, which is a win/win-situation for both sides.

Rieta de Soet speaks from experience. She has successfully managed GMC Business Centers for more than 25 years and met a lot of people and companies along the way. A lot of companies started at GMC AG and kept growing from there, but the contacts still remained after they expanded their company outside of the Business Center.

Queen“s Speech promises acting tackling „unfair practises“ in energy market

Queen"s Speech promises acting tackling "unfair practises" in energy market

Queens Speech (Source: Scottish Energy Services)

Queen“s Speech promises acting tackling „unfair practises“ in energy market

Glasgow“s leading Commercial EPC provider has welcomed the announcement of new energy measures in the Queen“s Speech.
A number of new bills affecting the energy industry were announced in last week“s unveiling of the UK government“s legislative programme for the next two years -despite the government appearing to drop an election pledge to cap domestic energy costs.

In her speech to Parliament, the Queen said: „My government will ensure fairer markets for consumers, this will include bringing forward measures to help tackle unfair practices in the energy market to help reduce energy bills.“Supporting documents suggest the government intends to extend price protections currently available to vulnerable energy consumers to people on poor value tariffs, although it is not clear whether this will be done through new legislation or the industry regulator Ofgem.
Other measures announced in the Queen“s Speech include:

A promise to implement the Paris Climate Change treaty despite plans from President Trump to withdraw America from the agreement – with the government pledging its commitment to „taking a lead in the global response to climate change“.

A Smart Meter Bill establishing a Special Administration Regime to ensure the continuing operation of the national smart meter service if a provider becomes insolvent.

A Nuclear Safeguards Bill creating an Office for Nuclear Regulation to take over from Euratom following Brexit.

An Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill stating an ambition to make „almost energy car and van“ zero-emission by 2050 and including the installation of charging points by large fuel retailers.

Scottish Energy Expert Raj Chall of Scottish Energy Services responded to the Speech.
He said: „Although the devil will of course be in the detail of these bills, the precarious position the General Election has left the government in and the energy that will inevitably be expended on the Brexit process means any commitment to new energy efficiency legislations from the UK government are to be welcomed.

„From a Scottish perspective, these announcements should not be seen as a definitive list of forthcoming energy legislation, with much responsibility in that area devolved to the Scottish Parliament.

„The Scottish government has always been more forward-thinking when it comes to energy efficiency measures and I expect to see that continue.
„Certainly the majority of the most important energy efficiency measures of recent years – things like the Section 63 legislation and regulations affecting Commercial EPC Glasgow and Commercial EPC Edinburgh – have come from Holyrood rather than Westminster“

Scottish Energy Services (SES) have been helping Scottish businesses meet their Commercial EPC needs for nearly a decade. We“ve built a team of experts in every aspect of EPC for commercial property, from meeting commercial EPC regulations and producing an EPC certificate for commercial properties, to EPC Commercial Register compliance.

3 July 1967: Krugerrand – Birth of a Gold Icon

3 July 1967: Krugerrand - Birth of a Gold Icon

Krugerrand 2017 1oz gold (Source: Rand Refinery)

Johannesburg, South Africa, 30 June 2017: 50 years ago, on 3 July 1967, the first Krugerrand, the famous South African investment coin, was manufactured jointly by the South African Mint and Rand Refinery, thus beginning a unique and very special global success story. The basic premise of the investment coin was to provide private investors with access to gold as an investment product, thus making the precious metal mined in South Africa accessible to everyone.

As a result, the Kruggerand ranks as the world’s most traded gold bullion coin and has come to be one of the world’s favourite investment coins. It is legal tender in South Africa and is valued solely according to the current price of gold. To make it more marketable, the South African coin with its distinctive springbok-motive on its reverse has a 1/12 copper content, making it particularly resistant to scratches or other forms of damage. The Krugerrand contains the exact amount of gold stated on its face value, and the copper is added to the gold.

Richard Collocott, Executive Head Marketing at Rand Refinery, states: „At the beginning, the Krugerrand was only issued in the weight value of one ounce. This soon changed following a sharp increase in demand. Today, these investment coins are also available in fine gold weight values of 1/2 ounce, 1/4 ounce and 1/10 ounce, thus we are offering investors a greater variety of investment opportunities. The huge interest in this coin continues to this day. Since it was first introduced 50 years ago, more than 52 million ounces of the Krugerrand have been sold around the world. In 2016, the Krugerrand was the world“s most popular gold bullion coin.“

Tumi Tsehlo, Managing Director of South African Mint, adds: „50 years ago, no one could ever have envisaged that the Krugerrand would be such a huge worldwide success. To continue this success, we consider it is very important to uphold tradition by retaining the original design and thus its high degree of recognition. However, this does not mean that we turn a blind eye to current developments. These developments include, for example, an increasing relevance of precious metals other than gold in the investment sector.“

That is why, on the 50th anniversary of the Krugerrand, the South African Mint also issued limited edition, collectible versions of the coin in silver and platinum, for the first time. „The limited edition platinum Krugerrand is available in a weight of one ounce, and will be issued in 2017 only,“ Tsehlo explains. On the occasion of such a significant birthday, the range of limited edition gold Krugerrands also features limited editions of 5 ounce, 1/20 ounce, 1/50 ounce coins and an impressive 50 ounce coin as the highlight of the range.

Rand Refinery and the South African Mint produce the bullion Krugerrand in South Africa. Rand Refinery has refined nearly 50,000 tons of gold, around one third of the gold ever produced worldwide. The Rand Refinery was founded in 1920 by the Chamber of Mines in Germiston, South Africa to process raw gold mined around Johannesburg, marketing it around the world. The firm now processes approximately all gold mined in South Africa and a substantial share of gold mined in the rest of Africa. In addition to the world-famous Krugerrand gold coin, the company sells gold ingots ranging from one gramme to one kilogramme in weight. In Europe, the best-known ingots are the „elephant ingots“, bars of fine gold with an elephant motif on the back. The Rand Refinery has been admitted to the London Bullion Market Association, and is also listed for good delivery on the New York Commodities Exchange (COMEX), the Tokyo Commodities Exchange (TOCOM) and the Dubai Good Delivery Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC), amongst others.

Franchising for Business Centers

Franchising for Business Centers

De Soet Consulting Business Center headquarter

Franchising has had a bad reputation in the past when it first started, but it has come a long way and is highly recognized now, considering that a lot of companies became successful because they were part of a big franchise system. When people think about franchising they usually think about restaurants or clothing brands, but there are more possibilities.

GMC AG, for example, offers their franchise system. It is a popular system which is based on a great business concept. Rieta de Soet says, franchising opens up a lot of opportunities.

Business Center offer completeley equipped offices and conference rooms, that can be rented for a few days, weeks or even months and years. Business Center are perfect for franchising, because there is a great demand in renting shortterm-offices, rather than committing to one permanent office.

There are a lot of benefits coming from franchising. Franchising is perfect for people who want to pursuit their dream of having their own company. However franchising can minimize the risk of financial bankruptcy, because the new owner gets to work with a proven system, claims Rieta de Soet, CEO of Global Management Consultants AG.

ARTS wins Airbus Tool Management Project at Paris Air Show

ARTS wins Airbus Tool Management Project at Paris Air Show

Last week ARTS presented at the Paris Air Show and was able to announce a multi-year contract with the Airbus Group in France. From July the company will be responsible for Tool Shop Management for the German part of Airbus for the A350 and A380 FAL in Toulouse as well as in St. Nazaire.

For several years ARTS has been proving its expertise in the fields of Production & Industrial Support Services as well as Logistics & Supply Chain. Thus ARTS in Toulouse is responsible for, among other things, the Tool Shop Management of Airbus Bremen within the scope of final assembly (FAL) for the Airbus A350. At this year“s Paris Air Show ARTS could also announce the contract for the workshare of Airbus Hamburg.

From July, ARTS is thus responsible for, among other things, the tool handling, ordering, tracking and issuing of hazardous materials, the tool inspection, tool maintenance, as well as locations-wide logistics for the Tool Management in the sites of St. Martin, Lagardere, Gramont and St. Nazaire. Alongside the A350 FAL, the project for the Hamburg workshare comprises also the A380 FAL. It is initially contracted until 2020 and will be conducted by an international project-team on site.

„We are delighted that the Airbus Group recognises the quality of our previous work within the scope of Production Support for Airbus Bremen. With the commissioning of the Airbus Hamburg workshare, we can intensify our collaborative work and further build on our expertise in this field“, commented Christian Rost, Project Manager for ARTS.

Just this year ARTS strengthened its presence on site with its own French daughter-company. The daughter-company focuses on service and work contracts and offers its French clients turnkey solutions in the fields of Manufacturing & Engineering, Production & Industrial Support, Logistics & Supply Chain as well as Quality Management. It is therefore a direct equivalent to ARTS Solutions, which offers this expertise on the German market.

perma FLEX – The All-in-one Lubrication System in Two Compact Sizes

perma FLEX - The All-in-one Lubrication System in Two Compact Sizes

perma FLEX on a fan

Euerdorf, Germany – The basic requirement for a long bearing / chain service life is optimum lubrication. Incorrect lubrication results in damages and equipment breakdown. The new all-in-one lubrication system perma FLEX from perma-tec provides reliable 24 hour, year round lubrication for all types of industries and applications.

Immediately ready to use

perma FLEX requires no assembly or special tools. Just unpack, turn the rotary switch to the desired discharge period and screw the system into your lubrication point. The discharge period (in monthly steps of 1 to 12 months) can be changed anytime after activation and the two sizes are perfect for small or tight spaces (size 125 cm³ = 117 mm high / size 60 cm³ = 85 mm high). During longer machine downtimes, perma FLEX can be completely turned off. This flexibility makes perma FLEX ideal for different lubrication point requirements.
perma FLEX makes preventive maintenance practices easier and safer. Longer maintenance intervals and remote mounting significantly reduce the interface between maintenance staff and dangerous operating equipment. This increases workplace safety and is more cost effective.

Tried, tested, and proven

The system was successfully tested in the market. The practical experience shows that perma FLEX can be used on all applications that require reliable and optimum relubrication, e.g. on bearings, chains, sliding guides, open gears, gear racks, shaft seals and more. The system is extremely flexible and can even be mounted up-side-down. It performs reliably in extremely moist and dirty areas (protection class IP 68) and in hot and cold environments (-20 °C to +60 °C).

Service included

To ensure that perma FLEX matches all requirements of your lubrication point, perma-tec offers the largest range of lubricants and accessories in the market of automatic lubrication systems. If you have any questions, our team of application engineers will be glad to help. If requested, our perma SERVICE team will come to your premises.
