Russia and CIS countries


Gerhard Oßberger is responsible for the Russian and CIS region and started his consulting activities in 2014, when he moved from Austria to Russia. During this time the Russian ruble suddenly decreased by 250 % and selling investment goods was quite tedious back then. Since 2015, he has been representing viscotec and is managing all his tasks by himself. At the end of this year Gerhard is planning to hire a sales assistant because of the growing workload. Through the “Year of Ecology” announcement of Vladimir Putin in 2017, waste should not be buried anymore, but processed in the future. Other CIS countries seem to follow Russia in these beliefs, which causes a huge potential for recycling in this region.
