Christian Bölling has already been a jury member last year, in the MTI Award’s first edition. He will again participate in the jury, having enjoyed reviewing and evaluating the applications. As his professional background is in machining, he recognises the impact of the machine tool industries on the entire manufacturing industry.

“CECIMO’s initiative to give visibility for improvements in this sector, which have positive repercussions in many companies, is great. I can only encourage people not to miss the opportunity of applying!”
