Hanna Padalitsa, project
manager at Steklovolokno, is very satisfied. „We have known
BRÜCKNER since the late 90s and already then had successful and
good experience in working together. At that time BRÜCKNER
supplied us with one line for finishing electrical insulation
glass fabric which is still in operation today at our Polotsk
site. We are happy to continue this excellent cooperation with
BRÜCKNER and ordered several lines from this family-run company.
We are convinced that the whole BRÜCKNER team will demonstrate
the highest level of professionalism, ensure the best quality of
the lines we ordered and provide an extraordinary technical and
after-sales service as they always do and for which the company
is known worldwide.
