UNEX Manufactures Undercarriages for the Launch Base of the Ariane 6 Rocket
UNEX emerged successful from a multi-stage tender process for the manufacture of 16 sets of undercarriages and coupling components which will form part of the mobile building of a new Ariane 6 rocket launch platform at the Guiana Space Centre. In total, the company is to supply approximately 810 tonnes of steel structures.
UNEX presented at Hannover Messe
Together with other Czech companies, UNEX participated in the largest industrial trade fair, Hannover Messe. Over 225,000 visitors—one third of which were from abroad—visited the Hanover fairgrounds in the last week of April to learn about the latest news and innovations in industrial automation and IT, power and environmental technologies, and mechanical engineering and engineering subcontracting.
Record attendance at the open house
The traditional May Day Open House enjoyed exceptional interest this year. Although we can only estimate the exact number of visitors to several thousand, the organisational team is unanimous in that the UNEX complex welcomed the most visitors it has seen in many years. The fluctuating April weather at the end of the month came to its senses, which meant that visitors could enjoy the entire prepared programme in beautiful sunny weather. A large children’s playground rose up in the area between the production halls: an inflatable obstacle course, wild surfing simulator, face painting, children’s workshops, games and contests.
