Up along the winding roads of the Albtrauf, past grassy hills, small forests and broad paddocks, you reach the idyllic village of Hohenstein-Ödenwaldstetten. With a population of few more than 500, the hamlet lies in the heart of the Swabian Mountains. Who could expect that up to 45 representatives of the German-speaking crane building partners of STAHL CraneSystems would meet there at Speidels Braumanufaktur from 12-14 March 2018?
Crane building partners from various parts of Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Czech Republic and even Romania travelled to Hohenstein-Ödenwaldstetten for STAHL CraneSystems’ 6th TechnicalExpertsForum. They met at midday on 12 March in the pleasing ambience of Speidels Braumanufaktur to share information on the latest developments at STAHL CraneSystems and in the crane building industry as a whole.
The second day of the forum was dedicated to the 16th LogiMAT International Trade Fair for Intralogistic Solutions and Process Management taking place simultaneously at the nearby fair grounds in Stuttgart. There STAHL CraneSystems presented itself with other members of the CMCO Group, namely Yale, Pfaff-silberblau and Magnetek. In the evening the participants learnt about the art of brewing traditional beer in a seminar that left enough time for socialising and conversation.
The next day the crane technology experts got to know the many sides of the Swabian Mountains at Marbach Stud, where the TechnicalExpertsForum closed with presentations on innovations in European standards and the future developments of STAHL CraneSystems.
The abundant attendance, harmonious atmosphere and many interesting talks at the TechnicalExpertsForum make STAHL CraneSystems’ convention an important component in its collaboration with international crane building partners, which will be pursued further within the Columbus McKinnon Group.
