Testimonials

"One of our customers needed a quick and clear consultation regarding a custom problem to export their products to Russia. The team of Swiss Center Samara proved very effective by answering quickly to our questions not only with relevant and precise information but also within the budget agreed upon. I recommend their services to all companies looking for a competent partner in Russia".

Thomas Meier / Managing Director, you-can export development gmbh

"SCE Experts would like to thank the Swiss Samara Center for its Industrial Report on Russian Aerospace Industry. Prior to reading the market research, we had little insight on the Russian Aerospace market. After reading this very thorough report, I was enlightened with the high added-value information shared within. The quality of the structure and content of this study encouraged us to join the cohort traveling to Russia for the fact-finding mission in 2019. SCE Experts is now well informed and positioned in the Aeronautics sector to consider joint ventures and partnerships with the Russian Aerospace Industry. Once again, thank you for this excellent report".

Esther Mveng / Managing Director, S.C.E. Experts SA

"Switzerland and Russia have very different approaches to business and cooperation. Swiss Center Samara proved extremely useful to overcome the cultural gap and open the right doors during our prospective trip to the country. I recommend their services to anyone who needs professional and polyvalent advisors who understands both European and Russian business realities".

Andrey Vyacheslav Luzgin / Deputy Head of the Government, Penza region

"We considered exporting to Russia but had very little market knowledge. The Russian team helped us get a clear picture of market segments, competition and pricing as well as export and certification procedures. As a result, we decided to postpone our project in Russia as their market research made us realize the market was not ready yet for our solutions. I greatly appreciated their transparency".

Michel Parvex / Founder & CEO, Systech Analytics SA

"Swiss Center Samara helped me get a visa in record time and organized an excellent business trip with targeted meetings at the highest level. Their assistance on the field and for the follow-up was extremely useful. I also enjoyed the transparency and realism with which they guided us through the Russian culture and market realities".

Daniel Stähli / Owner & Director, Stähli Produits Fermiers SA

"Finding reliable business partners in Russia requires a local support. Swiss Center Samara helped us understand the country and the Region of Samara with much dynamism and an impressive network among academics and innovative companies".

"Russia represents great opportunities for our business, but also great challenges. Swiss Center Samara understands those challenges and supported us in finding pragmatic and rapid solutions. Thanks to their local network, we could quickly establish relationships that wouldn’t have been possible otherwise. Their guidance before, during and after the business trip was very professional and very useful to make the most of our time there."

Bertrand Spaeth / Co-Founder, Kizy Tracking SA
Max Bosset, CEO at SAV-IOL SA

"We tried to enter the Russian market by ourselves, without any success. In less than 3 months, Swiss Center Samara proposed a dozen of potential distributors, organized a stand and a series of B2B meetings at a specialized medical exhibition in Moscow. We came back to Switzerland with a distribution contract and our products are now available everywhere in Russia"

Max Boysset / CEO, SAV-IOL SA

„Swiss Center Samara organized for us a 3-days business trip in the Volga Region. They selected great targets, brought valuable advices before the meetings and helped us make useful contacts with decision-makers. Many thanks to them, we will definitely work again together and we recommend their services.“

Rafael Pennese

" I had very little knowledge of Russia as a market for CSEM. SCS opened our eyes on the numerous opportunities in the Russian Space industry - and the challenges to overcome to gain access to them - during a perfectly structured week-long fact-finding mission. Definitely a must-have partnership for business expansion in Russia. "

Rafael Pennese / Business development specialist, CSEM SA

„Swiss Center Samara supported ACUTRONIC during our short notice announced visit in Samara with interesting and helpful information about the local business opportunities. Their knowledge about the regional civil industry, especially in automotive, opens a prospective future for our company. We are looking forward to further visits and meetings in this industrial cluster.“

Julian Maier / Sales Manager, Acutronic

„Clemessy Group is already involved in the Russian space industry, but wanted to create new connexions. Swiss Center Samara helped us do that during a 5-days business mission to Russian aerospace companies between Moscow and Samara. It opened the way to high level market players and promising prospects and its organization was excellent. Their understanding of Russian realities and business specifics was also very valuable.“

Thierry Giraud / Worldwide Business Manager, Clemessy Switzerland
Vincent Meylan

„I participated for one of my clients in a presentation of the Swiss Center Samara’s activities and was impressed by Mr. Waefler’s deep knowledge of Russian history, economics and politics, as well as his expertise of the Russian market and this for all active segments in the country. His written segment analyzes are very detailed and offer first class information for any industrial or subcontractor wishing to start or expand its activities in the Russian market.“

Vincent Meylan / Partner, LE/AX law firm

„I participated to one of the conferences „Russia Business Briefing“ organized by Swiss Center Samara about the opportunities and challenges for SME in this market. The speaker, M. Waefler, has a very good knowledge of the Russian reality and peculiarities, not only in theory, but always giving practical examples of how everyday business is done in Russia. The event brought me a lot of value to solve the challenges we face in the country.“

Jaime Estébanez / Export Manager Europe - Middle East, Goldkenn SA

"A big THANK YOU to Swiss Center Samara - a member of our chamber – for their excellent presentation during our joint conference « Russia Business Briefing » in Neuchâtel ! I particularly enjoyed the relevance and insightfulness of the content they shared. A remarkable highlight about the Russian economy and the potential of selected industries. It was very professional ! I recommend Swiss Center Samara to any person looking for a good partner on the Russian market.".

Florian Németi / Director, Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the canton of Neuchâtel

"Swiss Center Samara is definitely the right partner when it comes to execute a efficient market study in a record time. From the first exchanges about Sonceboz’s needs to the delivery of a detailed report on the targeted Russian Automotive OEMs, it took less than a month while respecting the budget quoted. What you could expect from Swiss Center Samara: an expert team listening and understanding your needs, resulting in deep market figures, precise contact details for identifying the Key Decision Makers and a support including a follow-up on the main relevant news and events from Russia. Finally, a good experience that I’d recommend.".
