The who’s who of the professional ropemaking industry converged on Gleistein’s production facility in Trenčín, Slovakia, at the end of May, when Gleistein Ropes played host to the International Ropemaker Day 2017. Organized by the team at Gleistein Slovakia in conjunction with the Federal Association of German Rope and Net-makers (Bundesverband des Deutschen Seiler- und Netzmacherhandwerks e. V.), the event, which took place over the course of four sunny days spanning 25-28 May, was attended by around 100 participants. Besides having ample time to network with existing contacts and make new ones, the latest issues in ropemaking were highlighted and debated during discussion sessions, and industry leaders presented fascinating specialist lectures. A particularly popular highlight of the successful event was also the special tour of the new Gleistein Ropes production facility in Trenčín. This unique look behind the scenes can now also be shared with you: the following video was made during the tour on International Ropemaker Day 2017, while production was in full swing. Enjoy!
Gleistein Ropes would like to take this opportunity to thank all participants and partners of this enjoyable and hugely successful event.
