Zeton Excursion

On the afternoon of 4 February, enthusiastic members of Astatine cycled from the university to Zeton, in the hopes of finding out more about their engineering, design and fabrication services. We were greeted with a warm welcome and given some more details about the company’s operations through a presentation. Afterwards, Thomas Ladrak, one of Zeton’s sales managers, showed us videos the moving of a pilot plant from the factory and eventual to their final location. Now that we had a good idea of their operations and the excitement was built up, it was time to have a peak into the factory. Finally, our excursion ended with a drink where we could socialise with more of Zeton’s employees. They even treated us to a lovely goodie bag.

All in all, we really enjoyed the excursion. Thank you Iwan and Zeton for helping to organise this event!

VDL Almelo Excursion

Wednesday 16th of October Astatine visited VDL Almelo with 13 enthusiastic members. We started with an explanatory presentation from Puck, a factory engineer, about his daily duties. He closed his presentation with some fun pub quiz questions. After the presentation, we had a tour through the factory which ended with a more informal drink where we could talk to employees.

Thank you VDL and Imane for this nice excursion!
