Already five years have passed since the foundation of our subsidiary KLS Martin Australia. Right from the start, the company was living up to its goal: helping surgeons by providing them with the needed tools and therefore improving patient’s lives in Australia – even if that means supplying urgent products along with hand-written delivery notes documented on carbon paper.

In 2014 Sebastian, who today is Head of Operational Product Management Implant Systems at our headquarters in Tuttlingen, flew to Sydney with one mission: transition the business from a former distribution partner, found the subsidiary KLS Martin Australia and help it grow. On his side he had two colleagues helping him entering the intial stock levels in SAP. All three were working thoroughly on getting everything ready for the big day – even until the early morning hours. 

Then the day was here: the official start of business and the first planned operations. Delivering products also means issuing an order confirmation, delivery note and invoice. When our colleagues tried to print the needed documents, the software put an obstacle in their way. It would not let them print the papers. Knowing that there were patients waiting for the products and the surgical staff counting on them, Sebastian and his team were trying to find a solution. 

They went through the old inventory and office materials and found carbon paper. That was the solution. They produced a hand-wirtten delivery note and documented all needed information with a carbon paper copy and were therefore able to ship the products to the hospital.

Afterwards the technical challenges were resolved and KLS Martin Australia could pick up its normal business. Today we have nine colleagues working there, driving our Australian business. Find out, why they enjoy working there:
