The friendly atmosphere in the meetings with our existing and potential customers.
What do you find are the opportunities and the biggest challenges in the Shipping Industry today?
The opportunity is the possibility to use our valves for new environmental friendly solutions for exhaust gas systems. The biggest challenge is to adopt our products to simplify the installation due to the lack of process knowledge caused by that the new players are coming in to the ship-building industry.”
How would you describe DSM in one word?
