"Groz-Beckerts objective is to create the awareness that it’s necessary to increase productivity in future. The symposium offers a good platform to forward this message and provide cooperation with Groz-Beckert, that is being a partner for Research and Development and for technical consultation," says Mr. Simmendinger.
