Lenzing Fiber Experience Preview

June 6, 2012, 7:00 am – 9:00 am
Intercontinental Hotel, Sullivan Room, 8th floor

7:00 am – 8:00 am Continental breakfast
8:00 am – 9:00 am Presentation

Imagine a supply chain that is totally knowledgeable in all stages of supplies, from raw materials to final applications and capable of offering valuable consulting advice to their end customers. Lenzing wants to be the first fiber supplier within nonwovens to initiate a professional training course on fibers and make it available to the nonwoven supply chain, for sales, marketing, R&D, product development and purchasing. Last year, a pilot program was launched in Europe to increase the awareness, knowledge and commitment toward Lenzing fibers. Thirteen companies participated in this program with very positive feedback. We are now preparing to launch this globally, with the US starting this summer. While we will not have time to review all seven modules, we will share with you one hours’ worth  and give you the opportunity to sign up for more. 

RSVP is required. Limited space available. Deadline for RSVP: May 21, 2012. Contact Nick Hrinko, n.hrinko@lenzing.com.
