In the Spotlight

Our first Global Technical Training of 2011 was a big success! Several of our customers, agents, and Licensed Partners descended on our corporate headquarters Feb 2 – 5th. Participants received hands-on training in our laboratories, learned about our newest products and R&D initiatives, and networked with experts from around the world.

The agenda was packed with presentations focused on everything from the latest developments in textile sizing, denim finishing and garment washing, to the newest corrugated paper coatings, including a special tour of a large corrugating plant which uses our products. Members of our staff and expert consultants were on hand to assist in laboratory demonstrations and conduct one-on-one meetings. Guest speakers included Mark Waggmann of Smyyth Trade Credit, who provided an in-depth overview of the economic landscape and impact on credit markets, and Antoine Marchal of SDV, a division of Bollore Logistics, who spoke on the latest trends in freight forwarding.

Highlights of the event included an opening night reception at Chateau Elan, VIP dinner and seating at the Atlanta Thrashers professional hockey game, and a visit to the Georgia Aquarium, which is the largest of its kind in the world!

The feedback from our participants has been better than we could ever expect!

“The lectures were great, documentation perfect and Seydel’s team showed an excellent, collaborative attitude.”

“We really felt as members of Seydel ‘s family!!! I do have the perception that at Seydel there is human touch…and that has immediately been broadcasted to Seydel ‘s global network!!!”

“Everything was perfect! This was well-worth the trip!”

“The socializing program, with unexpected first row skating show… simply great.”

Plans are already underway for a new Global Technical Training this Fall! Please check back for more information and a link to our online registration form.
