Dear reader,

through our global reach we have a special opportunity to take what we have learned from one location and to extend new capabilities to our customers across other countries. One recently opened location can be found in Ukraine’s capital city of Kyiv. Read about this relocation on page 3.

On page 4 let us take you from the long, cold winter to the blue sea of Croatia. Get to know our customer Cromaris, a top player in the fish industry.

Have you ever heard the term “people mover”? Find out on page 6 in which industry these particular applications are essential for a smooth and continuous production process.

The future of logistics in the light of increased digitalization and the importance of engagement in the local community are just two of the topics we talked about in the interview with the German OEM customer Lippert GmbH on page 8.

Extended belt lifetime, reduced water consumption and lower energy expenses – check out on page 10 how choosing the optimum belt can result in substantial savings.

Finally, on page 11 we will introduce you to an exceptional use where fabric belt material gives wood desks a functional and stylish touch.

Together with our team we wish you a happy new year and look forward to our successful partnership in 2018.

Enjoy reading the Highlights magazine,
