This is an exhibition area where small training workshops have been set up, where trainees have informed young people and school leavers, what great training opportunities the construction machinery industry offers, in order to attract young talent to the industry.The global construction machinery industry is thriving. The order books are filled well into the next year. And so bauma has also given a huge economic impetus to the industry.“ Read full article
