Simultaneously Central European management members of the Eckerle sites represented themselves from Ottersweier- Germany, Cluj-Napoca-Romania, Kiskőrös-Hungary. 

The speeches of special occasions did not quote the past, but they focused on recent aspirations and goals for the future. Prettl intends to give a prominent role of injection molding center to Bóly in the group by strengthening its high-level automation activities. The main products of the site are plastic base bodies of carbon brush holders manufactured for the automotive industry, household products, and industrial appliances market. 

The German owner especially thanked the Hungarian state and the local government for their support. Visitors could watch a new image film of the site premiered for the first time.
