TIP General Meeting took place on 9 November, this time at the premises of MBtech Bohemia in Pilsen. MBtech representative, Mr Rudolf Vohnout, began by welcoming General Meeting participants along with General Secretary, Pavel Duchek, and then went on to introduce all the activities of his company, and a interesting tour of the whole factory was also taken. MBtech Bohemia, which has been an associate partner for many years, was accepted as a TIP member during the General Meeting. TIP now has 18 members, and other co-operating partners, mainly from business fields.
The programme traditionally includes a very interesting specialist presentation, and this time it was given by Mrs Ludmila Kučerová from the University of West Bohemia’s Regional Technical Institute on the topic of New Trends and Opportunities in Metallography.
This was also an important meeting in that a new Board of Directors was elected to lead TIP over the years to come, this to be comprised of Mr Martin Kořínek, executive director at GRAMMER CZ, Mr Johannes Hafner, executive director at Konplan, Mr Mathias Eickhoff, executive director at ZF Engineering Plzeň, Mr Pavel Majer, executive director at GOLDRATT CZ, and Mr Karel Luňáček, executive director at MECAS ESI.
