His visit coincided with a pivotal moment: A new law in the Philippines allowing individuals to retain finds on private property, a development Grund applauded while emphasizing the importance for everyone to familiarize themselves with local laws.

His journey continued to Heysung in China, a substantial enterprise with 50 employees, 20 specializing in the field of metal detectors. As an official OKM dealer since 2012, Heysung remains a cornerstone in the industry, boasting a dedicated team and contributing significantly to the metal detection arena.
