Save the date

CIMCIL continues to closely track the needs of the supply chain of the 21st century. We would like to invite you as our valued guest to our second symposium on Oct. 26, 2017.

Industry 4.0 seems to be an overriding theme in the industrial world and we want to demonstrate the importance and relevancy in the local business environment.

We are putting together a unique program, highlighting the strategic importance, but also showing how to apply it to our local companies, deploying new technologies and management techniques. And presenting some real-life cases and what the impact is on the establishment, competencies and motivation of the teams in charge of delivering our best performance to our customers.
