Brandtjen & Kluge, Inc. recently participated in the 2005 Odyssey hosted jointly by the IADD and FSEA. The show format was unique in that in addition to companies existing on their own stand, there were various pieces of equipment operating in the centrally located “Tech Shop”.

To coincide with the event, the show hosts organized an awards dinner on the evening of June 15 where Henry Brandtjen Jr. received the FSEA Lifetime Achievement Award for 2005. Mr. Brandtjen received his award for his influential contribution to the foil stamping and embossing industry.
The IADD-FSEA Odyssey was very successful. Visitors not only got to see equipment, but they got to learn capabilities and processes. The next Odyssey is scheduled for 2007 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and, again, Kluge will be there.
