Hi Priit,

When looking for SBs in Germany, do try the Euromould exhibition,
every december in Frankfurt. This one is crowded with SBs looking
for new customers (no expanation why they are not in Hannover though).

Here you can find companies active in measuring as well.

BTW: where does the 'ee' in your email adress stand for ?
