The first stop on the way was the HILTI headquarters and their local fabrication site. The day closed with a hearty dinner in a brewery-attached pub with live Allgaeu music to get in the right mood for next day's visit to HARTER. Many questions about drying coated components "the HARTER way" were answered, the pilot plant station for drying tests of racked and bulk items shown and appreciated. After a delicious lunch in the open air, the group moved on to the mountains around nearby Alpsee lake. Forest climbing, hiking, summer sledding - everyone enjoyed their favourite recreational activity until the jolly group finally set off for home.
