Important Visitors at the Melos Village –
The Qatar Sports Ministry is Banking on Melos Quality

Melos is supplying granules for the running tracks at the 2019 World Athletics Championships

It was all about competitive sports at the Melos Village on June 20th 2019. A delegation from Qatar visited our open-air showroom in Melle to convince themselves of the quality of our granules.

This is because the Emirate of Qatar is banking on the reliable flooring materials from Melle for the upcoming World Athletics Championships in September 2019 and the IAAF Diamond League Meetings.

Trust in Melos quality

Representatives from the Qatar Sports Ministry were taken on a guided tour of the Melos production plant by Sales Manager Christoph Heidenescher and Marketing Manager Luigi Di Bella and were able to gain some deep insights into our production process.
“Here you can see granules produced specifically for the World Athletics Championships, ready to be despatched for delivery to Qatar”, said Christoph Heidenescher to the delegation, showing them a selection of green and red granules, freshly packed in PE sacks.

Granules for records

Two running tracks will be built with Melos products in the coming weeks. These will be used in Qatar as training surfaces for the World Athletics Championships and as the main surfaces for the subsequent IAAF Diamond League Meetings in the capital city of Doha. Melos wishes all the athletes plenty of success and personal best times that are easy on the joints!
