Opel takeover could be positive turning point

Brand analysis: „Made in Germany“ virtues could result in positive image transfer of technological expertise in favour of Peugeot and Citroën

Opel takeover could be positive turning point

Top 10% brand attributes used in connection with Peugeot and Opel

The possible takeover of the GM daughters Opel and Vauxhall by the PSA Group offers tremendous opportunities but also presents brand strategy challenges.

From a brand strategy perspective, it should be noted that both PSA and General Motors have established an umbrella brand strategy with a multi-brand system. In the case of the PSA Group, the product brands are Peugeot and Citroën, in the portfolio of General Motors are the brands of Buick, Chevrolet and Cadillac, among others.

As always, we consider the upper quartile of the results, that is, the 25 percent of the attributes most commonly mentioned in English-language Internet communications for the respective brand in our POWERMETRICS analyses.

At a first glance, it is striking that the PSA Group is almost unknown to the general public – in strong contrast to General Motors, who have invested continuously in the image of the holding corporation’s brand. The PSA Group, in contrast, acts as a pure holding-company with very limited proprietary brand communications. With 41 times more results than the PSA Group, General Motors is a clear communication step ahead of its competitor.

Both GM and PSA are positioned in the rational-distanced quadrant (Q-II) of the Brand Map, with PSA with only 6 percentage points of difference exhibiting a strong tendency towards the much more emotional, more open quadrant Q-IV – where also PSA’s automobile brands can be located. GM, on the other hand, is clearly positioned in Q-II with more than 40% of the results.

From the view of communications, the Opel brand is perceived as slightly stronger than its holding General Motors with 21.7% more results. The Opel brand is primarily recognized as being honest and established, but despite the marketing efforts of the past few years still perceived as old-fashioned. Therefore, in the event of a takeover, it will play a decisive role in future success how Opel integrates into the brand portfolio of PSA, whose Peugeot brand strikes with the dominant brand attribute of „sovereignty“ being most associated with Peugeot.

Possible strategies would be: A) maintaining Opel’s image as a „loyal companion“, or B) transferring the innovative, sporty, competitive image of PSA’s Peugeot to Opel / Vauxhall.

In both cases, there would be opportunities for a clear positioning against competitors. While Audi and Ford have a very similar brand image based on the analysis of their international communications (Audi being associated with attributes such as simple – happy – lovely – efficient vs. Ford with friendly – young – happy), Opel shares the second quadrant (rational / distanced) of the Brand Map among others with Volkswagen (efficient – competitive – straight). Peugeot finds itself in the haze of the highly emotionally positioned brands of BMW (exclusive – creative – exciting) and Porsche (strong – urban – dynamic).

Conclusion:
The virtues of reliability and technical competence suggested in the branding of Opel strongly conveys its background of „German Engineering“ and all aspects of technical knowhow associated with „Made in Germany“.
From a brand strategy point of view, this implies a recommendation to the leadership of the PSA Group to maintain the production location Germany in the long term. With appropriate cooperation and communications in place, this could result in a positive image transfer of technological expertise in favour of Peugeot and Citroën.

BGH: Notarized agreement decisive, not the draft agreement

BGH: Notarized agreement decisive, not the draft agreement

BGH: Notarized agreement decisive, not the draft agreement

In cases of doubt, it is the notarized agreement that counts and not a draft contract whose content deviates from the former. That was the verdict of the Bundesgerichtshof (BGH), Germany“s Federal Supreme Court, in its judgment of June 10, 2016 (Az.: V ZR 295/14).

GRP Rainer Lawyers and Tax Advisors in Cologne, Berlin, Bonn, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich, Stuttgart and London conclude: A purchase agreement for real estate needs to be certified by a notary. Should a dispute arise regarding the content of the purchase agreement, it is the wording of the notarized document that is decisive and not that of the draft agreement whose content deviates from the former. This has been confirmed by the BGH.

In the instant case, the plaintiff had acquired land with a hall built on it from the defendant. Before the agreement was definitively concluded, the notary sent both parties a draft version of the agreement pertaining to the real estate purchase. The draft stated, among other things, that the land had a hall built on it and that the buyer was purchasing the land in its present age-related condition. The notary was more specific in the notarized purchase agreement. For instance, he specified the size of the hall as 640 m². Furthermore, the buyer was to acquire the property together with the furnishings.

The buyer ultimately demanded payment of damages from the seller, justifying this with reference to the hall being only 540 m² and claiming that the fitted kitchen had been removed before the property was handed over. The claim was unsuccessful before the courts of lower instance, as the parties were said to have made no arrangements indicating a specific size for the hall or concerning the sale of furnishings. The BGH, on the other hand, reached a different conclusion.

The Karlsruhe judges ruled that the text of the notarized purchase agreement was of paramount importance. They held that the notarized purchase agreement was a public deed, and that these kinds of documents testify that the statements made correspond with the written content. They also stated that there is a presumption that the deed is complete and accurate. The Court went on to say that this presumption is not rebutted by presenting a contrary draft agreement, since this would contradict the purpose of notarial certification. It concluded that a draft is not sufficient as a conclusive record of the parties“ intentions.

With this ruling, the BGH has once again clearly emphasised the significance of certification by a notary. Before a notarized purchase agreement is signed, its content should therefore be carefully reviewed. Lawyers who are versed in the field of sales of goods law can offer advice.

The benefits of a Business Center are obvious

A Business Center is the solution to many problems

The GMC AG Business Center in Switzerland

The concept of a Business Center is quite simple, yet effective. 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 is a perfect solution if you want to expand your business to a different region. It is simple, uncomplicated and cheap. You don’t have to worry about launching costs. Another benefit is the flexible term of lease, which you can match with your needs.

Rieta de Soet says, the availability of offices in a Business Center is a great benefit for companies coming from abroad, because they get a helping hand from the employees who speak the local language and know the culture and costums.

It is also a good solution for a young entrepreneur, who wants to start self-employment. He gets all the help and information he needs from an experienced and high qualified staff. However any other type of Company is welcome to work at a Business Center as well.

GMC AG also offers an individual telephone service, backoffice, marketing service, translating services, conference rooms and helps building up your marketing organization.

Expiration of holiday entitlements: BAG appeals to European Court of Justice

Expiration of holiday entitlements: BAG appeals to European Court of Justice

Expiration of holiday entitlements: BAG appeals to European Court of Justice

It is common for disputes to arise under employment law concerning compensation in lieu of holiday entitlements. According to German law, holidays that have not been taken expire at the end of the reference period.

GRP Rainer Lawyers and Tax Advisors in Cologne, Berlin, Bonn, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich, Stuttgart and London conclude: In principle, employees are entitled to a certain number of holidays per year. The issue of whether employees are entitled to compensation of lieu of this if they do not take full advantage of their right to apply for leave of absence is contentious.

According to German law, employees need to request leave of absence for holidays if this entitlement is not to expire without being replaced at the end of the reference period. The employer, on the other hand, is not obligated to set holidays for the employee of its own accord. Having said that, the Bundesarbeitsgericht (BAG), Germany“s Federal Labour Court, has raised the issue of whether European regulations preclude the application of this national rule and appealed to the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) to clarify the matter.

The case in question concerns a worker who was employed for more than 12 years in total as a researcher on the basis of several fixed-term employment contracts. A few weeks before the employment relationship finally came to an end, the employer prompted the researcher to make use of his outstanding holiday entitlement. However, the latter only spent two days on vacation and asked his employer to cash out or compensate him for the remaining 51 holidays.

The courts of lower instance granted his claim for payment in lieu of holidays. The Bundesarbeitsgericht, on the other hand, expressed doubts, stating that according to German case law holiday entitlements expire at the end of the leave year. It went on to say that holiday entitlements generally lapse in the absence of grounds justifying their transfer pursuant to sec. 7 para. 3 sent. 2 of the Bundesurlaubsgesetz (BurlG), Germany“s Federal Holiday Act. Moreover, the employer is not obliged to grant leave of absence if no request for leave is made, or force the employee to go on holiday. The Court held that whether European law precludes the application of these rules under German law has yet to be clarified by the CJEU. The CJEU has since been called on to provide definitive clarity in relation to this issue.

When it comes to legal disputes relating to the workplace or drafting detailed employment contracts, lawyers who are experienced in the field of employment law can offer advice.

New in the range: Mitsubishi’s 10.4 inch AT Series power pack

Distec offers easy integration into challenging industrial applications

New in the range: Mitsubishi

Distec offers Mitsubishi’s 10.4 inch AT-series power pack for challenging industrial applications

Distec – leading German specialist for TFT flat screens and system solutions for industrial and multimedia applications, is pleased to present Mitsubishi“s 10.4 inch TFT display AT104XH11 with XGA resolution (1024×768), a real power pack for challenging industrial applications: the display offers a brightness of 1300cd/m² and a symmetrical viewing angle of v/h 160°/160°. It is designed for a wide operating temperature range of -40 to +85°C. „This means that harsh ambient conditions such as direct sunlight, heat or cold do not impair the function or the optical quality of the display,“ explained Matthias Keller, head of sales and marketing components at Distec. „Typical for Mitsubishi, the optical performance is outstanding, and expensive cooling or heating systems can be waived due to the extended specification.“ The AT104XH11, like all AT-family displays, is suitable for installation in aircrafts, vehicles, agricultural and construction machinery as well as other heavy-duty special machines because it easily withstands a vibration load of 6.8 G without being chunky.

Quick and easy integration into customer“s application

The Prisma-IIIE TFT controller board from Distec allows an easy and fast integration of the display into the customer application. The Prisma-IIIE is specified for a temperature range of -35 to +80°C and can be configured perfectly for the requirements of the respective application. Of course, it offers state-of-the-art EMC design. A kit solution also includes all necessary cables and the converter for the LED backlight. Distec“s SmartLED converters allow a dimming range from 0 to 100 percent.

Robust for harsh environmental conditions

For protection against dirt, condensation and other external influences, Distec optically bonds a protective glass to the AT104XH11 as a suitable supplement. A combination with PCAPs or resistive touch screens is also possible. Distec’s latest generation of PCAPs can easily be operated with thick gloves and even withstands salt water. The modern VacuBond Optical Bonding method further increases the vibration and shock resistance of the display and improves the sunlight readability.

Distec also offers all TFT modules as complete customer-specific system solutions for convenient plug-and-play use in production. In addition to the 10.4″ XGA display, the following robust Mitsubishi AT-series displays are available:
– AT070MJ01: 7″ TN, WVGA with 1000cd/m², 800:1, integrated converter
– AT070MJ11: 7″ TN, WVGA with 1500cd/m², 800:1
– AT104SN01: 10.4″ TN, SVGA with 700cd/m², 700:1, integrated converter
– AT104SN11: 10.4″ TN, SVGA with 1500cd/m2, 700:1
– AT104XH01: 10.4″ TN, XGA with 600cd/m², 700:1, integrated converter

In the second quarter of 2017, Mitsubishi is launching another 7-inch WVGA with 1300cd/m² and – thanks to IPS technology – a wide, symmetrical viewing angle of v/h 170°/170° with a contrast ratio of 1000:1. In the third quarter of 2017, an 8 inch WVGA IPS with 1000cd/m² and a contrast ratio of also 1000:1 will follow. Like all AT-series displays, both feature the extremely wide working temperature range of -40 to +85°C and the high vibration resistance of 6.8 G. The AT-family“s backlight lifetime is an impressive 100,000 hours. Distec has many Mitsubishi models constantly available from stock.

Hammering away! How hammer-formed models save prototyping costs

SOLVARO offers alternative production methods for the manufacturing of prototypes

Hammering away! How hammer-formed models save prototyping costs

Expensive deep-drawing tools are replaced by cost-efficient negative moulds of the component.

The cost of prototyping individual components can quickly grow to an enormous sum, especially if deep-drawing tools are needed for production. SOLVARO GmbH uses alternative methods when creating prototypes, having discovered the hammer-formed model for itself and its customers. This offers considerable potential savings and flexibility when developing parts.

Saving tooling costs
The deep-drawn parts of air grilles and engine covers for agricultural and construction machinery are essential in terms of both appearance and function. During bench testing and field tests, it is therefore imperative to produce these parts completely – even on prototypes. However, the production and modification of deep-drawing tools is extremely expensive. Figures can quickly amount to six digits. SOLVARO, the component supplier based in Kirchheim, South Germany, offers a range of more cost-effective production methods for prototypes, such as the hammer-formed model. As a result, development work remains flexible and reliable tests can be carried out on the materials, installation and features like air permeability.

Hammer-formed models ready for installation in the original material
The negative moulds for hammer-formed models are cut out of cheap steel or aluminium. The prototype is then formed by hammering the soft-annealed, perforated original sheet into the right shape. It is a labour-intensive method, and it takes a great deal of skilled hammering to produce a prototype. However, the results are impressive and are very close to the end product. In many cases, the moulds can be used for several prototypes – perhaps with different lengths, for example. Once tests have been carried out on the hammer-formed model, companies are usually a good step closer to serial production, although changes to the design can still easily be made.

SOLVARO – Manufacturer of individual industrial plate components
SOLVARO’s expert team from engineering, development and production listens to its customers. The result of this collaboration, coupled with a wide range of production technologies, is individual and innovative components. These may be used in agricultural and construction machinery, buses and server cabinets, for example.
