Various die makers from Italy visited the DFG CENTER of the firm of CITO-SYSTEM GmbH in Schwaig from 31 March until 2 April 2017. The representatives of the firms of FUSTELLIFICIO COZZA, SYSTEMBOX, FUSTELLIFICIO RIVIERA, TECNOSTEEL, FUSTELTECNICA were fascinated by the possibilities offered by CITO. On Saturday morning, the CEO of CITO, Jürgen Mariën, introduced the visitors to the company and explained CITO' philosophy behind its developments. This led to a very lively discussion about ejection materials and different cutting rule concepts.
The visitors were particularly impressed by the fact that CITO developed not just new theories but is also able to test these in its own technology centre and to develop corresponding products. The Italian visitors were naturally given the opportunity to inspect the production facilities and quality laboratory too. The event was accompanied by a visit to a match of 1. FC Nürnberg and an associated tour of the stadium. The visit came to an end on Sunday with a guided tour of the city in Italian, whereby visitors were able to convince themselves that Nuremberg has more to offer than just high-tech "Made by CITO".
“I discovered a number of opportunities at CITO and am looking forward to an intense cooperation.“
