Dear reader,

now in the beginning of the new year, we look back on a challenging and successful year 2018. With the change of our ERP system and the opening of a new service center in Romania, we took important steps to be well prepared to serve our customers even faster, more efficient and smoothly in 2019 and the years to come.

Besides the belting business, we also found time for celebrations, sporting events, team building and social activities. See for yourself on the pictures on pages 4 and 5.

In other articles you can read about the features of our new Premium TPU food conveyor belts (page 3), learn about the history and challenges in the tire production industry (page 6) and meet our German OEM customer Sesotec (page 8). You might also be surprised by the sheer dimensions of the modular belt project that we present on page 10 and by the health effects of using a treadmill desk (page 11).

Visit our booth at one of the exhibitions we plan to attend in 2019 – in the overview on page 12 you can see where to find us.

Together with our team we wish you a happy new year and look forward to our successful partnership in 2019.

Enjoy reading the Highlights magazine,
