From now on HP is imprinted in my mind with this image of rabbits grazing on the Irish grass. Phlegmatic bunnies seen in large quantities on the perfect lawns around the HP manufacturing site won the foreign clients’ hearts at first sight. Although the hi tech manufacturing facilities did not disappoint the Russian visitors either. With most of the processes automated we met only a few HP staff on the large area of the site, mostly engineers, operators and admin staff.
An interesting fact for me, the interpreter who knew nothing about the process of making cartridges, was that HP works with ink droplets as small as 5 pictolitres. 1 pictoliter is one millionth of one millionth of a litre 🙂
