Tungsram’s Advanced Materials team joined forces on May 5-7 at Cleveland, Ohio’s International Exposition Center to introduce the Tungsram brand to thousands of global industry leaders during the annual Ceramics Expo.
Considered the leading annual supply chain exhibition and conference for technical ceramics, glass materials, manufacturing and components, the show drew industry leaders, engineers, decision makers and buyers from the entire advanced ceramics and glass supply chain, as well as end-user OEMs. This environment also enabled the team to gain exposure to thousands of potential customers, partners and existing clients. The team was available to network with global representatives and gain an understanding of the latest manufacturing processes, technological advances and material trends.
Global Product Manager, Advanced Materials & Services Division, Attila Kürthy and Business Development Manager, Josef Mezei joined, Jeff Forstyk, Transition and Operations Leader of Automotive & Advanced Materials and Services, Tungsram U.S, on site to facilitate key meetings.
