Endress+Hauser Pyrotemp’s 2nd annual Oktoberfest

With Pyrotemp’s roots originating from Product Centre (PC) Wetzer, the temperature product centre in Bavaria, Germany. Pyrotemp South Africa decided to host an annual Oktoberfest to let their customers celebrate in their Bavarian heritage. 

With Endress+Hauser having 2 companies based in South Africa, the original referred within the group as a Sales Centre (SC) and the Temperature Factory, Pyrotemp, as a Product Centre (PC). The SC is responsible for sales of all Endress+Hauser products & services whereas Pyrotemp serves as the local manufacturing facility to produce quality Temperature Sensors & Transmitters, timeously. Pyrotemp forms part of Endress+Hauser’s global temperature network of companies, reporting to their Head Office located in the heart of Bavaria.

The Endress+Hauser temperature network of companies pride themselves on their innovative products, manufacturing capabilities and accredited services. To share such attributes with the sub-equatorial African customers, Pyrotemp hosted an open day where visitors could experience the Virtual Temperature Display Unit as well as an optional factory tour, showcasing the precision of the automated Thermowell production centre, SANAS accredited laboratory, innovative RTD Pt100 technologies, laser technology to serialise products for lifelong traceability and exclusive high temperature sensors with platinum Sheaths.

Pyrotemp created this opportunity for their customers exposing them to this world class Product Centre based in Benoni, South Africa. They hosted over 140 clients on the day. It was truly an eventful day filled with a wide variety of Bavarian food delicacies, drinks and a live oompah band.

Rob Mackenzie, Managing Director of Endress+Hauser South Africa (SC) began the formalities by welcoming the guests and briefly explaining the company’s direction, focus and product launches for 2017. The feedback received from customers was very positive and the event was enjoyed by all. Like the traditional Oktoberfest, this Pyrotemp event will be repeated annually. “It’s our way of sharing the Endress+Hauser Pyrotemp heritage with our customers. We would like to thank all our clients for attending and we are looking forward to seeing you and many more at next year’s event.” said Ben White, General Manager, Pyrotemp.
