On the occasion of this year’s 33rd anniversary of the unification of Germany, we were again invited to the German Embassy in Ljubljana. As the bundeskanzler so beautifully said, “33 years ago today, confidence united our country” and that German unity was our great good fortune. He also speaks of standing together and relying on the fact that Germany is a strong country with a globally competitive economy, a highly developed welfare state and openness to the world. We also strive to continue this with our relationship to Slovenia and our partners there. 🤝🌍


Thank you for the invitation Adrian Pollmann und Natalie Kauther. 💙


This year again we were at the meeting of the Slovenian Foundry Society in Portoroz, Slovenia. 🇸🇮🏭


The WFO (World Foundry Organization) addressed the challenges we are currently facing, decarbonisation, implementation of the European Green Deal, energy efficiency and the reduction of waste and consumption in the foundry industry.


In the coming years, there will also be a transformation in our society as we continue to address economic, ecological and social factors. But most importantly, it is worthwhile for us to create and add value to our society. We need to create a community within our society in which we support and help each other.


After five eventful trade fair days GIFA, METEC, THERMPROCESS and NEWCAST have clearly exceeded expectations. 63,300 visitors from 114 countries – 58 % of them being decision makers – travelled to the Bright World of Metals in Düsseldorf. Approximately 2,200 exhibitors from 56 countries presented the power of the metallurgical industry and set forward-looking impulses with their machines, plants and solutions. Sustainability and Artificial Intelligence were much-discussed topics in the twelve exhibition halls of the four world-leading trade fairs. We were delighted with your visit and are already looking forward to the NewCast in 2027.


We are delighted to be exhibiting at NEWCAST again this year! The exhibition takes place from 12th to 16th June 2023 in Düsseldorf and is one of the most important events in the foundry industry.

We look forward to a successful joint cooperation. Thank you for the invitation.
