Pre-COVID-19 Way Of Business Will Never ‘Fully Return’, Siemens’ Amin Says
By Jack Burke01 July 2020
The next issue of Diesel & Gas Turbine Worldwide magazine includes a “virtual” executive roundtable with industry leaders from within the large-horsepower market. The topics ranged from the impact of COVID-19 on supply chains to the challenges and opportunities each company sees in the growth of “green” technologies. Here’s a sample of what we learned:
“I am convinced that we will not fully return to the pre-COVID-19 way of working in our global business. Personal meetings (either internal or with customers) will be done more often via video conferencing and the number of business trips is expected to go down significantly. A growing number of field service jobs will be performed using remote technologies, which have been further developed and improved during the crisis. This will not only reduce our cost base and make us more competitive in the market but furthermore will increase productivity and speed when performing customer jobs and it will open completely new fields of business opportunities.”
— Karim Amin, CEO of the Generation Division of Siemens Gas and Power.
