Bernhard Sievering, Managing Director, BvL Oberflächentechnik GmbH

“Many are unfamiliar with the tasks associated with parts cleaning. There is no specific qualification to complete and so the knowledge needs to be taught again and again. The industry needs a professional association to raise its profile and stand out. The association must send clear messages and pool know-how, opinions and interests.”
