Late last fall, Leroy Billesberger and Trevor Lovelace were able to make the trip to Essen, Germany to participate in the Schweissen & Schneiden Essen Welding Show.  With over 1000 exhibitors, representing more than 42 countries the show attracted over 60,000 visitors.  These visitors were able to view products and innovations related to joining, cutting and coating technologies. 

Leroy and Trevor were able to take in the sights and sounds of this uniting of nations, and also stopped to chat with old friends at the Kuang Tai booth and Postle Industries booth.

After a couple of days of exploring the Schweissen & Schneiden Tradeshow, Trevor and Leroy were able to stop by Böhler Welding's facility for a tour.

With days of hard work behind them, Leroy and Trevor were able to fit in some site-seeing and headed off to Berlin.  They spent two days in Germany's capitol city, touring the Reichstag (the seat of German parliment), the Berlin wall, Jewish quarters up to and during WWII and many other great historical sites.
