Europe/Asia - Milos held its annual product academies at its bases in Roudnice nad Labem, the Czech Republic (13-14 April), and in Guangzhou, China (10-11 May).
The two-day product academy has been designed to provide attendees with the knowledge and skills for working safer while carrying out rigging duties and constructing support structures.
The Czech Republic event brought together local attendees, but also visitors from Slovakia, Germany, England, Scotland and Australia. The product academy in China drew attendees from China, Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore, India, as well as from Australia, New Zealand and Kenya.
Eric Porter, certified rigging consultant and internationally renowned rigging professional, gave rigging presentations and provided rigging consultations. Norbert Tripp, Area Four Industries technical director and structural engineer, held presentations that covered the ins and outs of static calculation theory. Both took questions from participants, going into deeper group and one-on-one discussions to provide answers and give practical advice on rigging procedures and working safely with various structures.
Michal Zykan, Milos sales coordinator, covered truss design, while brand manager Marek Zubor took workshop participants on tours of each factory. Key personnel from both factories provided attendees with a complete overview of products and carried out dedicated product demonstrations. On each evening, attendees were treated to a fun and exciting night of entertainment.
At the conclusion of each academy, attendees received a Certificate of Completion that now serves as confirmation of the increased knowledge and skills they had gained during the two-day programme.
Men at Work’s (India) Mankaran Singh, who attended the workshop in China, summed up the general feeling. He says: “Thank you for the wonderful workshop at your Guangzhou factory. It was a pleasure having met some new faces and discussed important rigging concepts at length. Your technical support and hospitality remains unmatched. I look forward to attending more workshops in the future and enhancing my knowledge.”
The next Milos product academies will be held at the same time next year in both locations.
