From 6-7 March 2017, a delegation from the company DS SMITH Ralegh visited the DFG CENTER at CITO-SYSTEM GmbH in Schwaig, Germany. During their visit, the members of the delegation gained an insight into the work carried out to date by the Die Future Group. Naturally, the visit incorporated a tour of the production facility, the R&D department and the CITO quality laboratory. After a detailed presentation covering CITO as a company and the concept of a development cooperation with diemakers, an in-depth discussion was held on new technology and processes in diecutting. The visitors were particularly impressed by the tour of this technical centre for cutting dies and they were convinced that all the conditions exist for practical development work to take place. Before leaving, Darren Grant made a statement to the CEO of CITO, Jürgen Mariën:
“At CITO, no matter where you turn, quality and innovation is everywhere.”
Darren’s colleagues Lee Gurbutt and Steve Stone were also highly impressed with the facilities and the strong R&D team.
