Habasit recently celebrated its 70th anniversary, yet I feel we are as vibrant and enthusiastic about our business as a start-up company. Our employees share a passion to be the best in our industry, and we know we must constantly improve to earn the loyalty of our customers. These traits are part of our company heritage and represent values we will continue to embrace for the next 70 years.
The articles in this issue are indicative of the advances we are making throughout the world as well as in the many industries served by Habasit’s belting products. Our global reach gives us a distinctive opportunity to take what we have learned from one location and to extend new capabilities to our customers across 150 countries. And while we are certainly proud of the technology and people behind our products, we are most gratified when our customers succeed because we have provided them the best belting products for their unique needs.
I hope it is not considered too late to wish all of our employees and customers a happy New Year and much success in 2017. The start of a new year always excites me for the refreshed potential, which is limited only by our imagination and willingness to work hard. We are planning some great things for 2017, and I look forward to sharing them with our Highlights readers as they unfold.
Highlights is published three times a year in English, German, Italian, Spanish, French, Russian, Polish, Turkish, Dutch, Chinese and Japanese.
