Investment in training and competency is a priority for SICK and the company will now be able to offer comprehensive in-house training.

Michael Muller, senior vice president and chairman of global business centre systems went on to describe how the family-owned company has evolved into a leading producer of sensors and sensor solutions, with a presence in 32 countries and global revenue of R20 billion. He emphasised the importance of digitalisation and the contribution that SICK sensor intelligence is making in the evolution towards Industry 4.0.

The highlight of the morning was Justice Malala’s highly entertaining and cutting edge insight into South African politics, the watershed developments taking place in the country, and what this means for business.
