This panel discussion focuses on the Mega Trends shaping the Future of Manufacturing, including Digital Transformation, Circular Products, Localized Production/Near Sourcing and Sustainability.

Mega Trend: Digital Transformation

Uwe Haehnel (Director Lead Group ServicePLUS Europe), Kyle Kipfer (Project Manager, Web & E-Tools), Tim von der Bey (Service Development Specialist) and Will Bacon (ServicePLUS Segment Manager)

The digital transformation trend continues to shape how companies operate, regardless of the industry. Uwe, Tim, and Kyle take turns highlighting different aspects of this trend and discussing how Trelleborg is staying at the leading edge. Will follows this up by sharing information about Trelleborg's wireless automated replenishment system – Intellistok®.

Mega Trend: Circular Products

David Kaley (Business Development Manager), Michael Cook (Global Segment Director, Off-Highway and Marketing Americas Segment Manager, Fluid Power)

The circular economy references methodologies by which people and companies can reduce pollution through the careful application of design thinking, which implies that a product’s design is focused on re-use, refurbishment, and waste reduction. David and Michael review the circular product concept, share examples, and discuss how seal design can be included in your design thinking for circular products.

Mega Trend Panel Discussion: Localized Production / Near Sourcing

Heather Castleman (Senior Director, Strategy & Marketing and Director, Mergers & Acquisitions for Marketing Americas Industrial), Elijah Soares (Director of Customer Advocacy)

Mega Trend: Sustainability

Prof. Dr. Konrad Saur (Vice President - Innovation & Technology)
