VEGA’s annual golf day has become a calendar event not to be missed. Each year an action-packed new product presentation is followed by a day of fun on the golf course, culminating in a prize-giving dinner. 


Invited guests heard from Natalie Barnes, Director of VEGA Controls SA. She was followed by five heads of department who each introduced a VEGA product and spoke briefly about their personal growth within the VEGA family.


The main product presentation was given by Mr Günter Kech, Managing Director of parent company VEGA Grieshaber KG. He had the attention of the audience as he took them through the history of VEGA’s development of the first 4-wire radar sensor in 1996 up until 2014 when VEGA produced the 80 GHz radar, optimised for solids measurement. Mr Kech’s surprise news was a pre-view of an even smaller, more sensitive radar which will be available in March 2016. This will be a game changer in the field of level measurement for liquids, and South Africa is the first country to be introduced to this instrument.
