Europe's Trade Fair For Injection Moulders

It's still quite a while until the 19th FAKUMA will take place in Friedrichshafen from the 14th through the 18th of October. Especially due to the fact that lots of new companies are expressing interest in being present at FAKUMA. Expansion of the exhibition centre will help, which should be completed by the year 2008. Nearly 40, 000 expert visitors and roughly 1450 exhibitors can't all be wrong. Those were the figures for last year's FAKUMA, international trade fair for plastics processing, and the vast majority of the exhibitors were satisfied with visitor quality and business contacts established at the event.

At the same time, the visitors confirmed high levels of acceptance for FAKUMA. The event presents solutions to a wide variety of problems, as well as innovative products, custom tailored materials and complete automation solutions and these are particularly important in high wage countries at the heart of Europe. Especially in light of the fact that the relocation of production facilities to Eastern Europe no longer appears to play a very important role.

Above all, FAKUMA is targeted at injection moulders and extruders. Exhibits include machines, peripherals, tool and mould making, all aspects of automation, raw materials, additives, services and much more. Topics such as energy-saving technologies and training in light of the current lack of skilled personnel are also becoming increasingly important. In general, companies form the plastics industry consider it problematic to find adequately qualified employees. And FAKUMA serves as an ideal platform in this respect as well.
