TLT-Turbo spendet 2.500 € für den guten Zweck

Auch in 2020 hat die TLT-Turbo GmbH in Zweibrücken wieder 2.500 € für gute Zwecke gespendet. Ein Teil der Spende wurde an Weihnachten überreicht, da wir uns dazu entschieden haben auf Geschenke für Geschäftspartner zu verzichten und stattdessen diesen Betrag verschiedenen Einrichtungen zukommen zu lassen.

Mit einer Spende in Höhe von 350 € wurde die Diakonie Pfalz für ihre Kurfreizeit Jugenddorf unterstützt. Die Diakonie Pfalz ermöglicht den Kindern und Jugendlichen jedes Jahr in den Sommerferien eine Auszeit zu nehmen. Leider konnte die Kurfreizeit 2020 aufgrund der Corona-Pandemie nicht stattfinden.

Der Kinderschutzbund in Zweibrücken wurde mit einer Logoplatzierung auf deren Fahrzeug im Wert von 300 € unterstützt. Mit dem Fahrzeug können beispielsweise Lebensmittel an sozialschwache Familien verteilt werden.

Ein großer Teil der Spende ging mit 600 € an die Sternenkinder in Homburg.
Sternenkinder ist eine Selbsthilfe-Gruppe für Familien, die ein oder mehrere Kinder vor, während oder nach der Geburt verloren haben. Die Spende wird verwendet, um Stoffe zu kaufen und daraus Kleider und Einschlagdecken für die verstorbenen Kinder zu nähen.

Die Diakonie Zweibrücken wurde mit einer Spende von 600 € für das Projekt „Armut durch Corona“ unterstützt. Das Diakonische Werk hat einen Corona-Hilfsfond eingerichtet, um Menschen während der Corona-Krise zu unterstützen. Dieser Hilfsfond ist aber sehr von Spendengeldern abhängig, weshalb wir uns hier besonders einbringen wollten.

Der restliche Teil der Spende, nämlich 650 € gingen an die Heinrich-Kimmle-Stiftung Zweibrücken. Sie ist eine selbständige kirchliche Stiftung und unterstützt Menschen mit Beeinträchtigungen in den Bereichen Arbeit, Wohnen und vorschulische sowie schulische Bildung. Dort wird der Beitrag als Übergangsgeld zum Arbeitsverhältnis für Menschen mit Behinderung genutzt, aber auch als finanzielle Unterstützung zum Führerschein.

TLT-Turbo GmbH Continues to Show Resilience Through COVID-19 Pandemic

Following the first official response statement on the global coronavirus pandemic, TLT-Turbo has continued to prove operational resilience in its operations across the globe. This is largely due to the efforts of the TLT-Turbo global team and the implementation of various innovative measures including remote service support and virtual model acceptance testing. These factors have allowed TLT-Turbo to continue providing the high level of service that their clients have come to expect – with some formally showing their appreciation for the ways in which TLT-Turbo’s support has contributed to their operational continuity.

In the three months since TLT-Turbo released their initial COVID-19 response statement, they have announced several new contracts for high profile clients across the globe. Most notably this includes the supply of Sinter fans and two CDQ fans for various clients in China and an order for low flow MVR fans to a client in Colombia.

TLT-Turbo, Global Co-Managing Director, Rainer Redinger: “We knew that to a large extent our resilience in the face of such a significant global challenge would stem from the expertise and commitment of the TLT-Turbo global team. Securing of these orders demonstrates the perseverance of the sales representatives and engineers involved and speaks to the reliability of our products on the market. These same factors will ensure that we endure through the COVID-19 pandemic and current global market downturns and emerge stronger than ever.”

Travel restrictions imposed around the globe, posed a challenge to the delivery of
TLT-Turbo services and fans. TLT-Turbo implemented Remote Service Support that facilitates remote service, maintenance, repairs and troubleshooting. Using an audio-visual connection that allows the exchange of images and data between TLT-Turbo experts and customers, TLT-Turbo’s team can guide customers through the process of making simple repairs and adjustments in real time.

Along with this, to facilitate the delivery and commissioning of new fans, TLT-Turbo’s R&D team have also rolled out Virtual Model Acceptance Testing. TLT-Turbo made aerodynamic model acceptance measurements and final acceptance testing available for customers to attend virtually. They are now done through software that combines video conferences with a connection to virtual reality on smartphones, tablets, smart glasses or a video screen.

“This is a major advancement in the digitalization of our offering. In future, even as we move into a post-COVID world, these platforms will remain an alternative option to conventional model acceptance testing, trouble shooting, repairs, inspections and many other services for all customers as it saves them both time and money,” Mr. Redinger explains.

These efforts add to the crucial support of the regional TLT-Turbo offices across the globe that are starting to re-opening following various national lockdowns.
TLT-Turbo Africa has been operational through the continuing national lockdown in South Africa that was instituted on 26 March 2020. They have been registered as an essential service which allows for manufacturing activities with 30% of their usual staff complement per shift. “We are currently on a two-shift system of six hours per shift for operational staff. Even with limited staff, we have managed to make key deliveries to our customers,” says TLT-Turbo Managing Director, Christo Gelderblom who goes to explain that strict hygiene and safety protocols are being adhered to and that non-essential staff are still working from home. “We have received a number of orders since we returned to work and are expecting a few more in the weeks to come as South Africa’s lockdown alert levels are being lowered.”

In Korea, TLT-Turbo representatives have been able to recommence visits and meetings at client sites while adhering to strict hygiene, prevention and social distancing measures. The regional office has reported that they are almost back to business as usual while taking every measure to protect the health and safety of their staff. Their manufacturing facility continues to be fully operational.

Currently, TLT-Turbo manufacturing facilities in the USA, Germany and China are also operational. TLT-Turbo Global Co-Managing Director, Xiongfei Zhao: “We have done everything in our power to keep our processes running as smoothly as possible. We have complied with all required hygiene regulations and have developed our own additional safety measures to ensure that our staff are taken care of. We have also ensured that our customers are able to reach us by making our team accessible on electronic platforms as they continue to work from home.”

This accessibility has allowed TLT-Turbo’s customers to continue to rely on the products and services that play a crucial role in their daily operations. Several customers have sent in words of gratitude for the role that TLT-Turbo’s products and support have played in keeping them going.

Currently, TLT-Turbo continues to encourage concerned clients and suppliers to reach out their TLT-Turbo representatives in the various regions. Locate your nearest point of contact here.

Model Acceptance Tests Go Virtual!

An important task carried out by TLT-Turbo is the conducting of aerodynamic model acceptance measurements and final acceptance tests in the presence of our customers. These tests demonstrate the aerodynamic performance of TLT-Turbo fans on a model test stand to meet the required fan characteristics.

Model tests are significantly cheaper and less complex than conducting tests on a full-size performance test stand (FSPT) such as the one that TLT-Turbo has set-up in Chengdu, China. TLT-Turbo has various model test stands at their facilities in Germany and is able to test different diameters of axial fans, centrifugal fans and full-size jet fans.

Due to the restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is not possible to host clients for witnessing tests at our R&D center in Zweibruecken. In an effort to continue providing excellent customer service and for current orders to move ahead, TLT-Turbo has found a solution – making acceptance tests available for customers to attend virtually!

Inspired by the global movement to move physical business processes such as meetings and inspections online, TLT-Turbo started looking for a software solution that would allow them to conduct virtual aerodynamic model acceptance tests.

The solution was found through software, which allows classic video conferences to be combined with a connection to virtual reality on smartphones, tablets, smart glasses, or a video screen. This makes it possible for participants in a teleconference meeting to see and experience everything as if they were nearby.

“Our team has run through the process and rehearsed internally to make sure that we are ready to fully cover every aspect of the testing and we are ready to offer this service to our clients to allow work and delivery of fans to continue,” says Dr. Sebastian Fleder, TLT-Turbo Product Manager for Aftermarket and Services. “This is a major advancement in the digitalization of our offering. In future, even as we move into a post-COVID world, this model will remain an alternative option to conventional model acceptance testing, trouble shooting, inspections and many other services for all customers as it saves them both time and money.”

If you would like more information about TLT-Turbo’s ‘Remote Service Support’ or you need fan expert’s assistance, please use the contact form on our website or contact your local TLT-Turbo representative.

TLT-Turbo India Doing their Part to Alleviate COVID-19 Burden

Like the rest of the world, India is facing the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and the effects of their own national lockdown. Those living below the poverty line as well as day workers and laborers have been particularly hard hit by the nationwide lockdown that started on 23 March 2020.

India’s Prime Minister addressed the nation and requested support for those in need. To facilitate donations, a special PM Office bank account was set up for individuals and organizations who wished to play their part in helping the nation’s needy.

While working from home, the team at TLT-Turbo India started discussing the unthinkable challenges facing their less fortunate fellow citizens and decided that they wanted to step up. In a moving and overwhelmingly generous gesture, the entire team decided to donate one day’s salary to the cause. This response on an individual level inspired TLT-Turbo India management to match their donations as a company. Together they reached a total amount of just over 100 000 Rupees (1300 Euro) which was deposited into the PM Office account.

“We felt a responsibility towards this cause. We are grateful to be able to continue working from home when so many others cannot work at all. The TLT-Turbo India team working from home are in contact every day and through our discussions it came to light that this cause was something we were all thinking about. I know that this amount may not be as high as some donations by larger companies, but our intent and philosophy is always do what we can to care for others and I am so proud of my team for making this happen,” says Pankaj Sohoni, TLT-Turbo India Managing Director.

Global Managing Director, Rainer Redinger applauded TLT-Turbo India for their generosity and sense of responsibility toward their fellow citizens. “Civic duty and pride are near to our hearts at TLT-Turbo. This donation demonstrates this part of our corporate culture perfectly. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and the various lockdowns that have been put in place across the world, the TLT-Turbo Global Team continues to show not only astounding resilience and motivation but also empathy for those who have been hardest hit. I would like to personally thank TLT-Turbo India for leading by example and for showing the world how unified action and solidarity can make a difference.”

TLT-Turbo ist auf fünf Kontinenten tätig und so gehen wir diese Krise mit einer globalen Denkweise an und handeln gleichzeitig lokal in unserer unmittelbaren Umgebung. Als Unternehmen und als Einzelpersonen erkennen wir die Notwendigkeit an, die medizinische Gemeinschaft zu unterstützen, um die Gesundheit und Sicherheit der deutschen Bürger während der Coronavirus-Krise zu schützen. Es ist unser Privileg, mit dieser Spende helfen zu können, die dazu beitragen wird, die Belastung der Mitarbeiter im Gesundheitswesen und des medizinischen Personals zu verringern“, sagte Rainer Redinger, Geschäftsführer der TLT-Turbo Gruppe.

Xiongfei Zhao, weiterer Geschäftsführer der TLT-Turbo Gruppe, betonte, dass TLT-Turbo für die Unterstützung der Muttergesellschaft PowerChina dankbar ist. „PowerChina und TLT-Turbo haben schon immer eine Beziehung gepflegt, die auf gegenseitiger Unterstützung und Zusammenarbeit beruht. In dieser Zeit der Not ermöglicht uns diese Verbindung, auf die Herausforderung zu reagieren, vor der unsere Kollegen in Deutschland stehen. Wir sind dankbar für die Unterstützung von PowerChina, durch die TLT-Turbo einen sinnvollen Beitrag zur Bekämpfung von COVID-19 in Deutschland leisten konnte.“

Die Gesundheit und das Wohlergehen der Mitarbeiter von TLT-Turbo, ihrer Familien und aller deutschen Bürger hat für das Unternehmen weiterhin höchste Priorität.

TLT-Turbo GmbH is closely monitoring developments around the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), and our priority remains the safety of our employees and our clients. Importantly, our employees remain dedicated to ensuring we deliver on our commitment to our clients amid these challenging times.

TLT-Turbo, Global Co-Managing Director, Rainer Redinger: “TLT-Turbo is closely monitoring developments around the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19). As a company with a global footprint, our priority remains the safety of our employees and our clients. Importantly, we remain dedicated to ensuring that we deliver on our commitment to our clients amid these challenging times. TLT-Turbo is taking our response to the developing Coronavirus outbreak seriously and we have put measures in place to ensure ongoing production and remote assistance for clients. Ensuring that TLT-Turbo is operationally resilient is of paramount importance to our clients and organization. As the number of Coronavirus cases continues to climb, we are taking steps to ensure that we are, in fact, resilient.”

Specific arrangements for each of TLT-Turbo’s 15 offices located worldwide will be based on local legislation and government responses but plans are in place to ensure our operational continuity.

Thanks to intensive and coordinated efforts, the COVID-19 situation in China is improving with the number of confirmed cases decreasing from last month. TLT-Turbo has received reports from our office in Sichuan stating that as of 25 March 2020 no TLT-Turbo employees in the region have been infected with the Coronavirus and that they are now once again operational. Stringent hygiene and prevention protocols are in place for all employees and while sales discussions are still limited to electronic platforms, these developments are encouraging.

Currently, TLT-Turbo manufacturing facilities in the USA, Korea and Germany are also operational. The staff present at these sites have been provided with personal protective equipment (PPE) as advised by global health organizations and all recommended hygiene measures are in place. The number of staff on site has been reduced where required along with the number of suppliers and external persons allowed on site. All suppliers are required to comply with TLT-Turbo’s prevention protocols on arrival.

The closures affecting manufacturing and delivery currently include TLT-Turbo Africa and TLT-Turbo India who are subject to government mandated national shutdowns – although this only for a period of 21 days. For sales offices and smaller branches, TLT-Turbo has implemented remote working arrangements to ensure that administrational, sales and consulting processes continue as normal.  

Additional measures taken by TLT-Turbo to protect the health and safety of our staff include cancelling all work-related travel, restricting client and internal meetings to electronic platforms, and complying with client hygiene and prevention protocols if and where field services are conducted.

TLT-Turbo Global Co-Managing Director, Xiongfei Zhao: “As your trusted ventilation partner, we are taking every necessary step to continue to provide the high-quality service and stability you rely on, while safeguarding the health and wellbeing of our employees and our clients. We have and will continue to take prudent, precautionary actions that allow us to provide the excellent support you have come to expect from us – including a focus on leveraging electronic platforms as far as possible, and flexibility to accommodate client needs and ensuring we proactively engage with you to gather real-time feedback. Importantly, TLT-Turbo remains as fully functional as this global crisis allows and we are prepared to provide continuity of service as the environment around us evolves. We take tremendous pride in being trusted suppliers to your business and will do everything in our power to deliver on that promise. Accordingly, we encourage you to contact your client service teams who are ready to offer assistance in any meaningful way possible and answer any further questions.”

TLT-Turbo will continue to monitor this evolving situation in each of our regions of operation and will ensure swift and decisive responses as the situation changes.

Mr. Wan extends his gratitude to the agencies, organizations and professionals who have provided guidance to the company during this challenging period. “In our 145-year history TLT-Turbo has overcome numerous challenges to our business and survived global events that have threatened the livelihood of our employees. We have overcome these and emerged stronger. In the crisis we face today we will take every possible measure to ensure our continuity and to safeguard the wellbeing of our team along with our clients’ operations. Although this may be a time of business as ‘un-usual’ we remain agile in our delivery of ventilation solutions.”

We encourage concerned clients and suppliers to reach out their TLT-Turbo representatives in the various regions. Locate your nearest point of contact here.
