With innovative products, such as the ‘unbreakable’ BLO-Line and new ways in product marketing (Distec Short Films), we are optimistic about the year 2023. The positive, collegial, and pragmatic company culture at Fortec AG and all affiliated companies inspires me. Another highlight for me is the close collaboration with my colleague Matthias Keller, with whom I can finally work personally after years in the industry.”
