As a first time attendee at Glastec you can't help but be impressed by the volume of expertise and equipment gathered in one place. Anything you want to investigate you can, and from multiple angles, and multiple perspectives. The knowledge of the glass experts on the stands and their ability to hand-off questions to other specialists also on their stands meant most questions got answered. If your serious about your role in the glass industry then Glastec is a must.
Another realisation for me was that not all the equipment on all the stands was necessarily the worlds best. There was some brilliant new leading technology, some technology which had been around for some time, and some which was "price fighter" quality. With so much on display it gave me the opportunity to better understand where each of our product lines (broadly speaking transportation and factory handling) fit when compared to the global offerings. I'm pretty happy with what I saw and where we fit!
