The marketing folks at Fritz Studer AG, Thun, Switzerland, understand the importance of having a distinctive, eye-catching location for introducing grinding machines. In March, they selected the Hagerbach Test Gallery in the canton of Graubünden in Switzerland to host the Studer Press Event 2019. The gallery was founded as an R&D facility for underground mining tunnel construction, but the subterranean setting has been the location of numerous seminars, parties, concerts and product presentations.
