Dear reader,

in 2017 we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Habasit in Austria. In the past half century we have grown into a leading belting supplier in Austria and Central Eastern Europe.

A company anniversary is a time when you should look back on the achievements and milestones of the company. We do so in the article on page 3.

On the other pages you will find information about the marble & stone industry, along with customer interviews from different industries and a look across the globe to the colleagues in Mexico. Furthermore, you will be surprised to see how Habasit belts help keeping the sea surface clean.

The diversity of the articles shows that we have gained the trust of industry leaders in many fields by providing high quality belting solutions. To succeed in the market for decades is a sign of trust, reliability and continuity.

We would like to thank our colleagues and business partners for their loyal and successful cooperation and look forward to the milestones ahead.

Enjoy reading the Highlights magazine,
