On the 22nd September 2013, E P Industries Ltd managing director Eddie Pilsworth invited Martin Lewis of E P Industries sales team, Paul Begley (director of East Midlands Civil Engineering) and Iain Devine (director of L.E.S. Group) to join him on a V.I.P. tour to Hyundai Heavy Industries in South Korea along with a number of other dealer staff and customers from across Europe. Here's what they got up to...
We departed from London Heathrow Airport on an overnight flight bound for Seoul, arriving on the 23rd September, then a connecting flight onto Pusan towards the very south of the country.
Stopping at the Hyundai Hotel Kyoung Ju we had a number of hours to sample a variety of the hotel drinks (alcoholic of course), trying to establish which was the best, and then a poor attempt of catching up on the jet lag.
We all experienced a tour and behind the scenes look at the manufacture of not only the excavators along the production line, but also an eye opening insight into the construction of ships in the dry docks.
In the evening we were treated to our welcome party including a phenomenal 13 year old pianist, an operatic performance and a orchestra showing there talents. All along with some outstanding culinary delights.
