Dayton Progress and Oerlikon Balzers
by Maj-Britt Hahn
Further foster cooperation in Portugal
Around 30 representatives of Oerlikon Balzers from almost as many countries visited the premises of Dayton Progress Perfuradores Lda in Alcobaça, Portugal, where Oerlikon Balzers is running an in-house coating centre.
The Oerlikon Balzers team came to witness the close cooperation that has been encouraged between Dayton Progress and their company in the 15 years of successful shared history in the Alcobaça factory.
Mr. Frederick Wilkinson, Senior Corporate Officer of MISUMI Europe GmbH - parent company of Dayton Progress - and Joao Pascoal, Managing Director of Dayton Progress Perfuradores Lda, emphasised the experience and expertise Dayton Progress and Oerlikon Balzers bring together and the cooperation they have proactively fostered over the years.
During their visit, the team had a deeper insight into the latest expansion of the in-house centre after the setup of a new Balzers coating system for DLC coatings. These newly offered BALINIT® coatings comply with Dayton Progress' requirements for a further positive business development and will also be available to other local customers.
