Dear reader,

In this edition of the Habasit “Highlights”­ magazine we dedicate the first pages to local content from the Nordic countries. Here you can find an interview with Henrik Fredriksson, CEO of Frebelt, our competent distribution partner up in the very north of Sweden and learn what support you can expect when you need belting service there. I also hope you appreciate the article about our belt strength terms and the elongation behavior of our products.

On the international pages we focus on the wet food industry and what specific requirements conveyor and processing belts have to meet in this sector. We have also included an interesting interview with Marel, one of the key players in the food processing industry.

Furthermore, you will find out more about our literally “broadened” product portfolio.

Also in this edition we have prepared an example of an outside the box belt use which means an application where our belts are used for an unusual purpose. – Would you have expected that Habasit belts can have a positive effect on a cow’s milk production? Find our more about this application highlight on page 11.

Your feedback, questions and suggestions are welcome. Please send these to

Enjoy reading the Highlights magazine
