EXHIBITIONS & EVENTS
Customer event in Austria
A new Customer’s day event was held at Schoeller-Bleckmann (SBER) in Austria the third week of September with the presence of 25 customers, mainly EPCs and end users, with focus on SBER’s new product portfolio (fertilizers, instrumentation, heat exchangers and special grades).
