Last week, the Cortec® Europe team hosted a training session for the new members of Presserv Scotland. A team of five visited Zagreb, Croatia, for a three-day training to expand their knowledge of VpCI® solutions and products. Through a variety of sessions presented by Ivana Radic, Cortec’s VP of Sales for Europe, attendees had the opportunity to learn about company organization and global sales, VpCI®Technology and testing methods, VpCI® packaging concepts, film extrusion basics, and more. Mr. Ivan Rogan, General Manager of CorteCros®, gave a presentation covering operations at CorteCros® and
Cortec® applications in the oil and gas industries. Ana Juraga, Marketing Manager, introduced Cortec’s marketing activities and showed how to navigate Cortec’s website.
Customer Service Manager, Tihana Vidovic, talked about EcoCortec® operations and future expansion plans for our manufacturing facility in Beli Manastir. Our guests also visited the University of Chemical Technology and Engineering where Professor Sanja Martinez talked about major forms of corrosion in the oil and gas production industries, specifically regarding corrosion inhibitors and corrosion monitoring for crude oil corrosion.
On the last day, attendees visited the Materials Protection Laboratory at the University of Mechanical Engineering. During the laboratory visit, Professor Ivan Stojanovic gave a presentation on the effect of VpCI® chemical pre-treatment on adhesion of organic coatings, followed by a practical workshop that included humidity chamber testing, salt spray chamber testing procedures, immersion testing, and VIA testing.
At the end of each busy day, our guests had the opportunity to explore the city of Zagreb, including its lovely city center and Zagreb’s famous upper town. They also enjoyed domestic Croatian cuisine at some of the city’s traditional restaurants.
Once again, we wish to welcome our new partners to the Cortec® family with hopes that the training program will greatly improve their understanding of VpCI® technology and applications while helping their work in general. We wish them much future success and happy selling!
