Dear Ms Rodermond,
A new editor-in-chief of BFT greets you with this editorial – who by no means is a newcomer to the precast concrete industry. Already inaugurated at the recent 63rd Ulm BetonTage, the author will already have met many of you, dear readers, at a wide range of technical trade shows, tours of concrete plants or other events of the industry. As a result, a genuine died-in-the wool concrete specialist will now hold the reins. As qualified construction worker by trade, and as construction engineer and concrete technologist, he is eminently versed in the field. Within a short time, a second editor will join the editorial office, whom we will introduce to you in our next bauma issue.
Your BFT-Team
