ThermHex CEO Jochen Pflug draws a positive balance after the international business trade fair for composite materials in Dusseldorf
Halle (Saale), 6 December 2016
From 29 November to 1 December, ThermHex Waben GmbH was successfully exhibiting at Composites Europe for the sixth time. Once again, it became clear that lightweight construction is a growing market. At the 11th trade fair for composite materials, more than 350 exhibitors showed their product innovations to about 10,000 visitors.
For three days, visitors had the opportunity to visit the ThermHex stand. CEO Jochen Pflug is delighted with the overall positive response and draws a positive balance: "After the first exhibition day, which was less frequented, the second day showed an enormous interest in our products". Luckily, ThermHex provided extra comfort and distributed sandwiches via hosts in specially made ThermHex aprons.
Especially the newly developed versions of the ThermHex polypropylene honeycomb cores in 5 mm and 6 mm thickness, which are available since mid-November, were in great demand. Furthermore, the visitors were very interested in the continuous manufacturing process, which is unique in the branch and highly cost-efficient. "After the Composites Europe, we are very positive. We made many interesting contacts and created new business opportunities. We are looking forward to joining Composites Europe in 2017,” says Jochen Pflug.
At the Composites Europe 2016, exhibitors from 27 nations presented their products in the exhibition area, on numerous event areas, lectures, guided tours and workshops.
New product varieties and a unique manufacturing process − the ThermHex stand was crowded
