Maintaining partnerships and always keeping up to date with the latest technology are important goals at VARTA Microbattery when it comes to dealing with international sales partners. This week, distribution partners in the electronics industry from all over Germany followed an invitation to come to Ellwangen. The distributor training event was held at the company’s headquarters, and this year, a prize was also awarded. VARTA Microbattery presented an award for “Distributor of the year 2018 Europe”.

In particular, new staff from the partner companies came to Ellwangen to find out more about VARTA Microbattery products and technologies. The agenda included training in the basics of modern battery technologies, as well as individual product areas. The focus was also on the three new rechargeable lithium-ion cells of the VARTA CoinPower series, which have been on the market since the end of 2018. This year, the “Distributor of the year 2018” for Europe award was also presented. The prize goes to Weisbauer Elektronik, a family-run company from Dortmund.
