'The Rhodonia project went for several months, and was carried out in individual stages. Keeping track of things is not always easy when doing it this way. The BWB group is familiar with co-ordinating partial deliveries, and production was perfectly tailored to our project stages.' – Technical Purchases department, Gerber-Vogt AG
