The German company Staatl. Mineralbrunnen AG convinces customers with a combination of tradition and modern technology
“We consider ourselves to be a medium-sized company with tradition, following a course of innovation with a focus on modern technology“, replies Hans-Jürgen Dittmann, manager of controlling at Staatl.
