The core topic of this year’s CECE congress which is going to held from October 16 to 17 in Antwerp in Belgium is how to become more agile in a fast changing environment. Despite good signs for 2014, the situation for the construction equipment industry in Europe remains challenging. Companies need to be innovative in marketing, in production processes and product design.
Eric Lepine, President of CECE said that this is the only way to win in Europe. CECE has invited an excellent panel of speakers, CEOs of companies like Volvo, Caterpillar, Bosch Rexroth or JLG who will look at the issue of agility and changing patterns from different angles. Major innovation is expected from areas such as additive manufacturing etc.
