AMSTERDAM, NOORD HOLAND, NEDERLAND, July 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Konijnenburg Wheels acquires large Slovenian wheel manufacturer and strengthens position in the European market

Konijnenburg Wheels becomes the fifth largest transport wheel manufacturer in Europe

Konijnenburg Wheels has acquired a 50% interest in the Slovenian castor factory LIV Kolesa. The plant, located 45 kilometres east of Triest, is Europe's fifth castor wheel factory.

LIV Kolesa currently employs 170 people and last year generated a turnover of €14 million, with capacity for a potential turnover of €26 million. The acquisition makes Konijnenburg Wheels the fifth largest wheel manufacturer in Europe in terms of turnover.

The acquisition will considerably strengthen the market position of Konijnenburg Wheels. Thanks to its automated presses and attractive wage cost for production in Slovenia, LIV Kolesa is considered the most competitive wheel manufacturer in Europe. As a result of the takeover, customers of Konijnenburg will have the opportunity to have large volumes of custom castors delivered within a few weeks. At the moment, the minimum delivery time for such volumes from Asia is ten weeks.

After the takeover, the management of LIV Kolesa will be in the hands of Floris van Konijnenburg, managing director of Konijnenburg Wielen, and Franc Gregorcic, founder and managing director of G4 Group. The new management wants to quickly optimise the factory and strengthen LIV Kolesa’s brand internationally.

‘LIV Kolesa needs to be transformed,' says Franc Gregorcic. ‘The company currently does not have enough profitable operations and we will help it enter new markets and develop and introduce new products. Redundancies are unlikely, says Gregorcic. ‘Our G4 Group has seven factories with a total of 950 employees. Wherever we have appeared, we have achieved growth.’

LIV Kolesa was founded in 1954 as a metal factory and woodworking company. The Slovenian company has since developed into a high-tech producer of castors, wheelbarrows, plastic injection moulded parts and sheet metal stamped components, serving customers all over the world. Unique to the Slovenian factory is the optimised internal logistic process, which enables short delivery times. LIV Kolesa is the only castor factory in Europe to have its own galvanising plant, two towering fully automatic 400-tonne transfer presses and its own slitting lines. The factory has a progressive sustainability program; part of its energy supply is supplied by 4000m2 of solar panels.

According to the latest information, LIV Kolesa's products are sold in 27 countries, with the EU being its most important market. Germany and Poland are the largest markets. In the first quarter of this year, LIV Kolesa's sales grew to €3.8 million, an increase of 18% compared to the same period last year.

Konijnenburg Wielen is acquiring LIV Kolesa together with G4 Group, a conglomerate owned by the Gregorcic family, a well-known and successful entrepreneurial family in Slovenia. The company started in 1995 when Franc Gregorcic decided to produce caravans on the site of the defunct IMV Adria caravan factory. Today, G4 Group is a major European producer of thermoforming, a technique for processing plastic sheets. In addition, the group focuses on buying and restructuring other companies.

Floris van Konijnenburg knows LIV Kolesa well. Konijnenburg Wielen has been representing the Slovenian company in the Benelux for the past 25 years. Over the decades, the two companies have jointly developed several new systems for transportation and swivel casters for the Western European market. ‘This is a logical step for us’, says Van Konijnenburg. ‘The advantage to our customers lies in custom work at a good price, with a short delivery time. With this acquisition, we can deliver European quality at a competitive price, a two-day drive from our Amsterdam head office', says Floris van Konijnenburg.

About Konijnenburg Wheels
Konijnenburg Wheels and Vlukon are part of Konindustries BV (group turnover 2017: € 13 million; 70 employees). With the acquisition of LIV Kolesa d.o.o. Konindustries is investing in a leading market position in technical wheels and industrial components for use in the automotive industry, waste processing, retail logistics, parcel delivery and horticulture.

TRAVOD Recognised Among Largest Translation Companies in the World

Travod - Translation Agency

Travod – Translation Agency

Market research firm CSA recognises TRAVOD as a leader in the $46.52 billion global translation, localisation, and interpreting services industry.

We are thrilled to be recognised in the CSA Research. And, as the localisation landscape continues to evolve rapidly, we are here to explore new ways of contributing to the translation industry.”

— Elena Grigoras, CEO of TRAVOD International

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, July 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — TRAVOD International announced today that it officially ranks as one of the largest language service providers (LSPs) in the global translation and interpreting industry. Published in June 2018 by independent market research firm Common Sense Advisory (CSA Research), “The Language Services Market: 2018” ranked TRAVOD translation agency as a top-grossing LSP in the US$46.52 billion global market for outsourced language services and technology. TRAVOD International was named as the 93rd largest LSP in the world and the 22nd largest in Northern Europe.

With 70% annual growth last year, TRAVOD outperformed more than 18,000 other translation companies to achieve this honour. The company’s success is attributed to its expansion into new Scandinavian, Asian and Eastern European markets. A big role in TRAVOD’s growth was played by the diversification of the service portfolio offered to end clients, incorporating services such as Website Localisation, Software Localisation, Desktop Publishing and translation solutions. The customer-focused workforce at TRAVOD helped it get ahead of the other players in the industry.

As part of the primary quantitative study, CSA Research surveyed providers from around the world to collect actual reported revenue for 2016 and 2017, and expected revenue for 2018. The firm details the findings in the 14th annual global industry report, “The Language Services Market: 2018,” the only comprehensive global survey of private and publicly-traded language services and technology companies. The firm found that the demand for language services and supporting technologies is continuing and is growing at an annual rate of 7.99%, representing an increase of 6.97% on last year’s rate.

“We are thrilled to be recognised in the CSA Research. And, as the localisation landscape continues to evolve rapidly, we are here to explore new ways of contributing to the translation industry by focusing on digital solutions and localisation automation, which can and will transform the global economy.
For us, this is an honorable position and a significant boost in our global ranking, yet all we can feel is gratitude toward those who helped make this happen – all our partners. Thanks to their patronage and their firm belief in our capabilities, we managed to raise the quality of service offered to all our clients. Their loyalty helped us step up to the mark, perform better and keep pace with their needs," said Elena Grigoras, CEO of TRAVOD International.

Sixty-four percent of the language services providers (LSPs) surveyed said revenue was up over the previous year. Factors driving this demand include content digitisation, personalised customer service, and business globalisation. As organisations both large and small make their products and services available in more languages, the firm predicts that the language services industry will continue to grow and that the value of the market will rise to US$56.18 billion by 2021.

“As businesses optimise their customer experience in home markets through digitisation, companies are under pressure to globalise their entire operations. Our research has long and conclusively demonstrated that people are much more likely to purchase products in their own language. In addition, that same content and product localisation reduces customer care costs and increases brand loyalty,” explains Dr. Donald A. DePalma, CSA Research’s founder and Chief Strategy Officer.

TRAVOD, a full-service translation agency, has evolved and adapted so as to offer cutting-edge translation & localisation solutions to global companies and outsourcing solutions for LSPs. https://www.travod.com/

Car rental fraud victim exposes crucial photographic proof to show humanity the shocking subsequent vehicle damage used as part of highly-refined theft scam

The most important advice I can offer to any car rental customer is to take substantial photographs of the vehicle condition at the origination and the conclusion of the rental”

— David Howe, National Car Rental 'ding and dent' scam victim

FORT MYERS, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, July 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — SubscriberWise, the nation’s largest issuing CRA for the communications industry and the leading protector of children victimized by identity fraud, announced today the photographic proof of rental condition during the moment-in-time when the vehicle was returned to the crime scene at SW Florida Fort Myers International airport National Car Rental check-in location, as well as the subsequent photographic evidence revealing the shocking vehicle damage that occurred in the care of tortfeasor Enterprise Holdings.

The subsequent damage was conspicuously made in a close and convenient proximity to the ‘wear and tear’ that was part of an overall complex 'ding and dent' scam intended to financially implicate the crime victim through the origination of a one-way rental secured with a business credit card. This damage was a ploy designed to create an illusion of a legitimate claim to support a substantial money demand that included aggressive tactics to gain access to the victim's credit card and insurance company for undisputed and prompt cash settlement.

The damage was later photographed and then inserted onto a PDF by the Enterprise ‘Damage Recovery Unit’ with repeated financial demands directed at victim David Howe for payment of $502.80, an amount which Florida law may declare as felony grand theft under current statute. And in the most brazen effort to hasten the fraudulent payment repeatedly demanded by tortfeasor, the crime victim was threatened to have his credit severely impacted by a third-party collection agency if the illicit money was not paid to 'satisfy the claim'.

Although egregious beyond imagination is the photographic evidence revealing the subsequent damage, it’s only a mere piece in a larger corporate cover-up, including an incredible under-oath written statement directing law enforcement investigators to the WRONG VEHICLE.

In addition to a comprehensive hour-long presentation provided to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi’s Consumer Protection Director Victoria Butler and senior investigators in Tampa, Florida, the complex systematic scheme and criminal evidence was shared with a field representative for United States Senator Marco Rubio and later communicated through an in-depth presentation to Mr. Rubio's legislative staff in Washington D.C. (https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20170318005007/en).

• See the photo taken at crime scene revealing nearly invisible, yet normal, ‘wear and tear’. The photo was sent real-time via the Verizon VTEXT server to the manager on duty after Howe became suspicious of the ‘ding and dent’ scam. The single photo established an uncontroverted record of the vehicle condition at rental check-in and protected the victim beyond reproach:


• See the subsequent photo that was emailed to crime victim Howe in a PDF from the Enterprise ‘Damage Recovery Unit’ with a financial demand of $502.80. The photograph reveals actual damage that could not have been the responsibility of the crime victim. It was the basis of a law enforcement investigation and meetings with lawmakers:


“The most important advice I can offer to any car rental customer is to take substantial photographs of the vehicle condition at the origination and the conclusion of the rental,” said David Howe, National Car Rental crime victim and survivor. “There may be many instances when agents will advise that ‘anything smaller than a golf ball is okay’. It’s critical that consumers blatantly ignore any instruction to dismiss minor 'wear and tear' and to instead take photos of every square inch of the assigned vehicle, inside and outside and even checking under-carriage to help mitigate easy-to-commit fraud by predatory rental agencies.

Related: Rental Car Checklist – Protocol for Protection

“And that recommendation cannot be made more strongly for each and every rental because there’s a pathetic lack of uniform and predictable standards for the car rental industry that places consumers at incredible risk of financial exposure with virtually no due process rights — even in cases of clear and convincing fraud,” Howe added.

“Of course, I hope to change that with my own criminal victimization,” Howe concluded. “In fact, my past efforts – as well as planned future efforts — with Congress and state lawmakers has proved to be profoundly therapeutic following what is undeniably the most abusive and anger-provoking life event I have ever experienced.”

Mobile Tyre Shop launches in Adelaide to become Australia's largest mobile tyre network

First launching in Melbourne and featured on Shark Tank, Mobile Tyre Shop now operates in 4 states servicing Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and now Adelaide.

MELBOURNE, VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA, July 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Mobile Tyre Shop commenced operations today in the ‘City of Churches’.

First launching in Melbourne in 2012 and featuring on Network Ten’s Shark Tank, Mobile Tyre Shop now operates in 4 states with company owned vans servicing Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and now Adelaide.

Mobile Tyre Shop has taken the hassle out of buying tyres by bringing the tyre shop straight to the customer 7 days a week. Disrupting the traditional tyre shop model, customers can now get their tyres conveniently fitted at their homes or work.

While mobile tyre servicing is innovative to Australians, countries such as the USA and those of Europe have long been used to the convenience of getting their tyres changed at home or at work.

“Fleet customer demand for a national service is driving us to spread our footprint quicker than anticipated,” explained Travis Osborne, CEO and Founder. “Particularly national rental car companies who have embraced our offering in Melbourne and Sydney are driving demand In Adelaide.”

Heading up the operation in South Australia is Shameel Hay, who is excited to be making Adelaide his family’s new home having worked with Mobile Tyre Shop in Melbourne. As one of the most experienced Tyre Technicians, ‘Shamy’ saw this as a great opportunity to not only progress his employment, but to also give his family a better lifestyle in South Australia.

“I have been pleasantly surprised how easy it has been for the family to settle in here in Adelaide.” said Mr Hay. “My wife was able to transfer her job and with a great lifestyle and reduced cost of living here in Adelaide, it is a win-win all round.”

The first item on Shameel’s to-do list will be to recruit the Tyre Technicians needed to operate the bright yellow and white vans around the Adelaide metropolitan area. “From what I’ve seen so far, the quality of applications for the positions has been very high.” Mr Hay explained. "I guess with the recent car factory closures, a new business such as ours can only benefit with the wealth of skills on offer.”
