The company’s aim is to meet customer’s widest possible parts and equipment needs. “We can provide a much greater service to our clients both on the road and in the workshop, compared to our competitors,” says Strive’s Erich Kohlhöfer.
“Our staff’s ability to rapidly identify damaged parts and provide the correct replacement is what our business is all about.”
“Eliminating costly downtime is perhaps the most critical role we play for our clients. Through our relationships with customers at a local level we are able to cater to the specific requirements of their engineering workshop in a timely manner,” he says.
