ANGA COM 2016: Present as never before!

The ANGA COM – trade fair for broadband, cable and satellite has been Europe’s leading business platform for broadband and content providers in the past 15 years. The fair offers Europe a marketplace focused on broadband for operators, manufacturers and content providers alike. Due to the success in the recent years we’ve decided to increase our visibility.

tl_files/images/news/bild_logo_en-2016.pngIf not quite new, then almost like new! This is our standard when offering preowned systems and individual boards. Proven technology must not expire with the end of warranty terms or product life-cycles. We offer you individual support plans for the continued supply with boards and systems. This offers you liberty from manufacturer‘s product policies and enables you to plan your investments reliably and over a longer period.

As an extensive service supplier we offer a one-stop solution for all the services that you can expect from an experienced partner for refurbished technology. ORC, this is full service in a new dimension. Combine our service packages to suit your demands – we provide unbeatable solutions for the cost-cutting operation of your communications network. 

Visit us from June 7th to 9th at the ANGA COM 2016, hall 10.1,
booth V019. We offer you consulting in a relaxed atmosphere, and show you how we can assist you in securing the economic and long-term operation of your network. 

Our team – Kerstin Wartmann (marketing & sales assistant) and Andreas Fetzner (Managing Director) are looking forward to welcome you personally with a refreshment.

ORC to attend ANGA COM once again

After debuting at last year’s ANGA COM, ORC will attend the trade show as an exhibitor again this year. At the show, held in Cologne from 9 – 11 June 2015, ORC will present a selection from its extensive range of products and services.

tl_files/images/news/News-ANGA-ACOM-400x303-EN-ORC.pngORC will share a stand (Hall 10.1, Stand S18) with SPEED Electronik, sales and project specialists for communication networks, and ALMATEC, manufacturer of custom housing systems. At ANGA COM, ORC will present “hands-on technology”. Visitors to the trade show can see for themselves how even complex needs can be met smoothly and economically using pre-owned telecommunications and network technology.

Over the past ten years, ANGA COM has developed into an essential event for the broadband, cable and satellite sectors. As the leading broadband marketplace for Europe, the trade show provides a comprehensive overview of the latest technologies and trends in next-generation networks, content provision and smart homes. In 2014 ANGA COM was attended by 450 exhibitors and attracted around 17,000 trade visitors to Cologne.

This year ORC will welcome customers and visitors from 9 am to 6 pm on 9 and 10 June, and from 9 am to 4 pm on the closing day (11 June).

To make an appointment and reserve free entrance tickets, please email or call +49 (0)7251-93 48 75-0.

ORC Survey: feedback is once again outstanding

In 2014, ORC repeated its customer survey as part of its quality control process. The survey delivered an average satisfaction rating of 1.57, a further boost from the 1.78 achieved in 2013.

This year’s survey was once again divided into eight criteria: availability, response time, sales expertise, product quality, range of services, value for money, delivery reliability and delivery time. Customers gave scores from 1 to 6, where 1 was "excellent" and 6 was "fail". The survey had a response rate of over 50 per cent.

“We’re honoured to receive such a positive rating from our customers, but we also have the obligation to do better”, says ORC CEO Andreas Fetzner. “We particularly appreciate the many constructive suggestions and ideas for improvement that we have received. This shows that our customers are abreast of the developments and trends on the markets, and have confidence in us in these areas.”

Relocation completed

ORC’s expertise in the field of logistics was much in demand last summer and autumn – this time within its own walls. The company has relocated to its new premises and grown significantly in the process; space allocated to logistics has doubled to 3100 m². This new scope accordingly opens up new options for ORC in terms of storage capacity and throughput rates.

The company’s portfolio of technology has also grown and expanded considerably. The new test labs have an area of 800 m², with space to house a more comprehensive range of reference systems for top-level test procedures.

Last but not least, the recycling department can also stretch its legs over 350 m² of space in future.

“Pre-owned telecoms technology is a sector offering enormous potential; at present, we have hardly scratched the surface”, explains ORC CEO Andreas Fetzner. “Given this, we are in the fortunate position of being practically forced to expand by the continuously increasing demand from our customers. The new premises now also enable us to pursue strategic growth and serve our customers around the world even faster and more efficiently than before.”
