Friday, June 1st: Day 14

Yesterday we visited Buhler headquarters in Switzerland. The visit started off with an overview of the company as a whole, showing us that they provide equipment for many different industries. Globally, 65% of wheat is run through Buhler equipment. After this presentation we took a tour of the assembly and manufacturing buildings.This processing facility was wonderfully clean and the assembly process was fascinating. We then took a quick visit to the Innovation Center and R&D Labs and were immediately sworn to secrecy. After this, we all got a crash course on milling on their 1 T/hr mill. This was a great experience all around and something great we can put on our resume. By the end of the day Dr. Maier had earned his honorary Buhler 150th anniversary flour slick/milling spatula.  (No pictures were allowed inside the manufacturing area (so let your imagination go wild) but we were able to take pictures of the teaching mill.)

A special thanks to Buhler and all their representatives that visited with us this week! The hospitality was phenomenal.
