Flock Study Tour - Amsterdam April 2018 - great success!

On April 19, 2018, some members of our association met for the first Flock Study Tour in Amsterdam.
Rik Breur from Finsulate invited us.

Mr. Breur showed us impressively how he makes flock installations on boats.

He explained everything worth knowing about materials and technology.

All participants were excited and we could watch as Rik Breur and his colleagues on a boat perform the flocktape installation and try it out for themselves. It was amazing how fast and precise this is done.

Finsulate was recently voted product of the year 2018 in the Netherlands with its product "Flock installations on boats and ships".We congratulate Rik Breur and his team on this award. This is a great award for his company!

In the evening we met for a dinner together in a nice rooftop restaurant in Amsterdam. The view was very worth seeing.On the second day of our tour we did a sightseeing tour with one; of course flocked boat through the Grachten the canals of Amsterdam.

Amsterdam was on both days in bright sunshine at its best and it was impressive to experience this vibrant city.All participants were very excited about our tour and the visit to Finsulate. It was a relaxed atmosphere with good conversation and great experiences.
We would like to plan further Flock Study Tours - if you have an idea or suggestion, I am very pleased to hear from you!
