66 ULRICH MEHL IN PERSON What was your first thought this morning? Nice weather! – It should be a good day. When is your day a good one? When I’m in good spirits and there is a harmonious ambience at work and in my private life. What gets you in a good mood? Good discussions and good food. And what drives you crazy? Nagging and deadline pressure. What are you most likely to forgive yourself for? I honestly don‘t know. When do you lose track of time? When I’m relaxing with good music. If you were forced to take a four-week holiday, where would you go? To a sunny island. What do you like spending your money on? On good food, good music and good wine. Do you let yourself be seduced by advertisements? Certainly sometimes. When is a promotional product a good promotional product? When it delivers what it promises. What is the best promotional product you have ever received? I really can’t say. What do you find irritating in relation to promotional products? When they are primitive and meaningless. PSI Journal 2/2016 ny to include the Austrian and Swiss markets. In the field of customised productions, Jura Textil is also capable of responding flexibly to detailed design requests – for example, a polo shirt from just 300 units. Among other things, an in-house (award-winning) fashion designer who designs high-quality photo montages of implementable models according to specifications ensures the implementation of a top design. RELIABILITY AND QUALITY Currently Jura Textil has 31 employees and offers its promotional partners a comprehensive service characterized by reliability and uncompromising quality. And the customers appreciate it. “Our partners in the promotional product industry are prepared to pay reasonable prices for quality and service,” says Ulrich Mehl. After finishing, the products are specially checked again before packing and shipping. At any rate, Jura has so far managed to meet its claims and satisfy every customer. In order to explain the numerous possibilities of textiles and their finishing options to customers on site, the experienced and well-known industry insider Stefan Hafner joined the company’s field sales team in August 2015. In addition, customers regularly receive the latest information in newsletters and by e-mail. As a training company, Jura also ensures there is no shortage of qualified junior staff. The current team consists predominantly of in-house “Jura trainees”. CHANGEOVER WITH A CLEAR CONSCIENCE Under these conditions, Ulrich Mehl was able to hand over his very well-positioned company to his son with a clear conscience. Officially, he already retired in November 2015, but as he reported, he was only able to reduce his workload from roughly 60 to about 40 hours per week. He still works actively alongside his son and looks after long-standing customers. Philipp Mehl still sees him as an advisor who is able and allowed to “continue to influence the company’s history with his experience”. However, he now also has a little more time for his four grandchildren and his hobbies table tennis and cycling. Incidentally his wife, Helena Bühler-Mehl, who together with Ulrich Mehl founded Jura Textil, still works as a consultant for the company: As a partner and self-employed tax consultant, she is responsible for the financial matters of the finishing professionals of Jura Textil. <
