Elecs Group Holding Ltd. ready to market DIGI food industry products in Bulgaria
Lawrence Morrison, Senior Sales Executive of DIGI Europe Ltd. (DEL) visited Elecs this June. During his stay, Lawrence and Elecs people visited many food plants who are taking the first steps into automatic weigh price labelling for the food industry, in preparation for Bulgaria's entry into the EU in 2007. Lawrence is sure that Elecs will soon successfully launch DIGI food industry products into their market.

The year 2004, it is really a very exciting year with memorable events worldwide and at DIGI.
ATHENS 2004 Olympic Games returned to its roots after the Games traveled to countries around the world since the first Modern Olympic Games were held in the country of their birth in 1896. The opening ceremony was very glorious with the historical monuments in High- Tech. Here in Japan, everyone enjoyed the great and so exciting events while we suffered from the lack of sleep. I am so encouraged with by Japanese female athletes' toughness and their performance. They brought us the gold medals in Judo, wrestling and the marathon.
