Dear reader,

we look back at a successful year 2016. Together with our customers we were able to implement many interesting projects. We present some of these highlights on the following pages.

For example, we took a look behind the scenes of the Viennese OEM, Supervac Maschinenbau GmbH. To read about our experiences, please turn to page 8.

Conveyor and power transmission belts from Habasit are used in many different applications. Would you for example have thought that you could not withdraw cash from an ATM without

our belts? On page 10 we show how Habasit brings you cash.

The industry focus on page 6 is dedicated to wood processing, in particular the production of particle boards. In this process belts play a crucial role – forming the boards to their shape.

On page 11, we will introduce you to an exceptional use of our belts in pigsties, where they perform very well even under adverse conditions.

Together with our team we wish you a happy new year and look forward to our successful partnership in 2017.
