[2017-05-18] Company Visit Hitachi Construction Machinery Europe

Yesterday DUJAT and members gathered together for a company visit at a really impressive location: Hitachi Construction Machinerey (Europe) in Amsterdam. With a group of almost 50 DUJAT members attended this event, including our special guest the Japanese Ambassador to The Netherlands H.E. Hiroshi Inomata.

After a nice and spectacular welcome in the auditorium, including a show that impressed us all, we enjoyed a very interesting tour around the huge factory. At the end of the tour, a delicious lunch awaited us in the beautiful showroom.

We would like to express our sincere appreciation to Hitachi for making such a great event possible, as well as to our members for your attendance, and look forward to see you all at our next event. We have got a few interesting seminars coming up, and hope to see you there!
