2015 TWENTY20 CRICKET CHALLENGE

By Richard Hepworth, President, Trelleborg’s marine systems operation

Trelleborg’s marine systems operation recently held the latest in its series of Cricket Challenges in Ahmedabad, India.

Starting in 2010, these cricket games have featured teams from the local marine systems Engineering Centre, based in Ahmedabad, versus a multi-national team from the marine systems BU management team.

As usual, this year’s game was a closely fought contest (well not that close really!!), with the local Indian team narrowly coming out as winners. (Actually the Management team were thrashed! Again!)

As in previous years, the friendship and camaraderie between the two teams was fantastic to see. We’re already looking forward to the next game. But perhaps it will be football next time.

The cricket game coincided with a management meeting held at the marine systems Engineering Centre, located in the centre of Ahmedabad. This centre now employs close to 40 skilled, graduate engineers, who support the global marine systems business, covering mechanical, structural and electrical engineering disciplines. It is also starting to provide engineering support to other Trelleborg businesses.
