Welcome to the world of polyurethane – as already on our home page we invite you to explore this wonderful world of fascinating materials and its various applications. And who could explain it better then our employees, working since years or with the fresh view of the newcomer on the multiple facettes of these products.
In a series of interviews, reports and comments are telling people their stories and experiences, about the tasks and possibilities of polyurethane. Besides technical and functional facts there will be also room for private, philosophical or personal things. In a loose sequence we will publish here new articles. We cordially invite you to follow these pages, maybe finding also the one or other useful idea.
Many thanks to our employees, who realize this asma – website – project with great participation and enthusiasm.
Cordially, Claudia Steininger und Thomas Brandeis (Management)
