GOING THE EXTRA MILE

Batteries included

Dubai (UAE), May 2017- Konstantin Fedin (previous PT&A Product Manager) explains

how he turned his passion for battery technology into a one year project. The special

purpose: operating a car by using Hilti batteries. Konstantin shares his motivation

behind the project, the challenges he faced during his journey and the burning passion

he has for innovation.

What was your biggest motive to take on this project?

My passion for innovations, battery technologies and cars all together drove me forward. Being responsible for cordless tools in SR Gulf and SR NEEA as a product manager, I wanted to show everyone that Hilti batteries are capable of moving something much bigger than just construction power tools. And I had no doubts that the finest quality of Hilti batteries together with some mechanical engineering intelligence will allow me to reach success at the end. I love battling challenges, and this idea just added more fuel to the fire.

How long did the project take to complete, and what did you enjoy the most about it?

I started this project in July of 2016. It was a long journey, full of unexpected surprises and hidden challenges. It took me nearly 9 months to finally run the first Hilti Electro car and introduce it to my colleagues during the Marketing wave in March 2017. Creating something totally new and completely out of the box – not construction related – by using the latest technologies which Hilti owns is a big proud achievement and exceptional personal motivation.

What was your biggest challenge during the process?

The whole project was full of tasks and questions which I have never faced before. For instance, many times when I was facing design challenges, I was trying to get consultancy and advice from professionals in the automobile and electrical engineering industries. And I often got the answer: “It’s not possible, don’t even waste your time. ”But after some weeks of internal brainstorming we were able to find a solution and we were able to overcome the next challenge. The conclusion is: “Nothing is impossible.”

There is no brand on the market that can match the level of the Hilti products and services, and our batteries are no exception.
