The Heye Symposium held from December 1-3, proved to be a great platform to exchange information.

The event included an interesting mixture of business, technology and market trends.

The first day of the symposium had the theme ‘Leadership and trust’, and included topics about business and strategic tasks for the future.

Day two adopted the theme ‘Productivity’, and included presentations by experts from Heye which covered new products and the latest technology.

In the afternoon attendees visited Heye’s expanded assembly facilities, including a machine workshop with five optimised assembly places and SpeedLine IS 12 TG in operation. A tour followed of the modernised glass plant of Ardagh in Obernkirchen.

The farewell dinner was topped by young English singer Hannah Trigwell.

A review of the event will appear in a forthcoming issue of Glass International.
