At the same time, it has given us also credibility not only for our company but also for our technology. The relevance and credibility we gained in Hannover Messe will be the best tool to grow our sales in the industrial sector.”.

Their technology has been designed to help industry to become cleaner and more environmentally friendly and to promote industrial digitalisation in the transition to Industry 4.0.
