November 4, 2019 – Several of the newest members of Sulzer GTC’s licensing group had four days of training in Houston to get a better understanding of technologies, operations, sales and the continuing integration with Sulzer. The “trainees” were joined one evening by other licensing and engineering staff for a team-building exercise at an escape-room facility called The Escape Game. An escape room is a room used for a physical adventure game in which players are locked in the room and have to use elements of the room to solve a series of puzzles, the answers to which enable them to escape — with the goal of finishing within a set time limit.

Our brave participants, with a time limit of one hour, solved the clues and escaped with three seconds left.

Not to be outdone, the R&D staff in Bozeman successfully completed “The Heist,” an escape room featured at a local facility, Bozeman Breakout. Although not done in record time, they made it out of the room within the allotted 60 minutes with a few to spare! Completing the room required team collaboration to find clues and solve puzzles involving cracking codes and disabling lasers.
