The CEO of EGA Master Aner Garmendia participated with three other leading international companies in a round table organized by the Basque Government. EGA Master is the industrial company in Spain that exports to the biggest number of countries (153).
The President and founder of EGA Master Iñaki Garmendia received the Company of the Year Prize in the awards organized by El Correo (main newspaper in Northern Spain) and Banco Sabadell (one of top 5 Spanish banks). The event was held at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao.
EGA MASTER was invited by the ESIC Business and Marketing School to discuss the opportunities and challenges of “multi-channel” sales at an event held on the 23rd of January in Bilbao. During a round table session, EGA MASTER highlighted the importance of keeping a consistent message across all the channels where customers search for information or procure good and services. EGA MASTER also emphasized the need for adjusting the price and incentive structures in order to minimize price conflicts across channels. The coherence and consistency of the commercial policies are key to maximize and manage effectively the different channels in which customers are active on.
EGA MASTER exhibited at the first edition of FICA, the Caribbean Industrial Trade Fair that took place from 14 to 16 November in Barranquilla, Colombia.

With over 3000 visitors and 100 local, national and international exhibitors, the FICA event aims to become the most important platform in the Caribbean for technological and commercial exchange of industrial products and services.

At the event, EGA MASTER presented its latest innovations across its premium industrial safety tool range, which includes 1000V, non-spark and anti-drop tools categories. The new solutions presented received a very positive acceptance from the professionals who visited the event.
Over the last month, EGA MASTER has exhibited at four industry fairs located in four different countries across three continents. Such activities are in line with the company´s international footprint and its strategy to grow beyond traditional export markets such as Europe and South America.

At the FICA event in COLOMBIA, OGAV Exhibition in VIETNAM, BASRA INTERNATIONAL OIL & GAS CONFERENCE & EXHIBITION in IRAQ, and ELECTRICX in EGYPT, EGA MASTER has exhibited its latest innovations as well as its wide range of industrial hand tools & equipment and its personalization capabilities, which are offered under the company´s value proposition of enhanced Safety and Efficiency.

This is yet another demonstration of continuous expansion, learning and improvement by a company that exports 90% of its production and is present across more than 150 countries.
EGA Master has joined efforts with the Rotary Club in Vitoria (Spain) for a project to open a new technical school. As part of this collaboration, EGA Master has donated EUR20,000 worth of hand tools to a welding workshop that has been built in Wenou, north of the Democratic Republic of Benin.

The Rotary Club is an international community service organization formed by professional and business leaders who endeavor to humanitarian services. The organization was aware of EGA Master´s social commitment and requested its collaboration on this project in order to equip a technical school that would enable young boys and girls to receive education and develop new skills.
EGA MASTER received the 2017 Vodafone DEIA Industrial Innovation Award at an event celebrated on the 29 November at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao. The award recognizes EGA MASTER´s successful trajectory and its commitment to innovation since its foundation. EGA MASTER holds over 200 patents and defines innovation as one of the key pillars of its international competitiveness across the over 150 countries it distributes to.
