TIP’s first General Meeting of 2017 took place at the premises of EUROSOFTWARE, s.r.o., which is one of the major software companies in the Pilsen Region. A total of 13 of the current 17 members took part in the General Meeting. Company executives Stephan Kronmueller and Petr Panoš welcomed all those present, while TIP members and partner had the opportunity to view at first hand the cutting edge software company’s facilities after the initial presentations. Stephan Boese of GK FutureLab’s presentation on groundbreaking technologies and their practical uses in the retail sector was particularly interesting. Over the course of the meeting, other topics were discussed, in particular in regard to the lack of qualified personnel and support for technical education in the region.
Deputy Chair of the Board, Mr Johannes Hafner, invited TIP members and partners to take part in a visit to Konplan’s parent company KRONES in Neutraubling. Here, TIP members will have a unique opportunity to view the operation and cutting edge technology in a company operating worldwide which develops and manufactures machinery and complete production lines in the bottling and packaging technology sector for the food industry in particular.
At the end of the meeting, TIP General Secretary, Mr Pavel Duchek, thanked everyone for taking part and the organisers for the smooth course of the whole event. The next TIP General Meeting will take place in June at STREICHER, spol. s r.o. Plzeň, involved in the construction and mechanical engineering of special equipment, pressure vessels and steel structures.
