Dear reader,

welcome to the second issue of Habasit­ Highlights 2018!

Speed and local availability are becoming more and more important for the industry. In line with the new market demands, Habasit AB has expanded with a new sales and service point in Timrå, close to Sundsvall. Read about it on the local pages where you also find a nice story how Nordic bakeries can make profit out of retrofitting steel mesh belts with plastic modular belts.

Are you going to follow the Football World Cup on television? Most of the beverages, food and snacks the viewers are consuming while watching the matches are probably processed on a Habasit belt. We describe how on page 5.

Talking about food, on the international pages you find an exciting story about how a new and innovative fishing vessel can look like, the life on board and how the Icelandic fish process solution provider, Skaginn 3X, has designed the equipment.

Due to the increased global sustainability awareness, the packaging solutions become more and more recyclable with new innovative materials and solutions. Read about it on page 8.

The global Habasit application engineers are daily working together with our customers in order to find the best innovative solutions. (Page 10)

How can we connect a fox with conveyor belts? On page 11 you will find out how!

Finally, Habasit is interested in your conveying stories!

Enjoy reading the Highlights magazine,
