Join the best!

From April 15 – 19, 2024, Düsseldorf will once again take center stage in the tube and wire industries. We are very excited to showcase our solutions and offer a platform for discussions on technology and projects in Düsseldorf.

This year, we will turn the spotlight on the topic of lifecycle partnership and our ideas for a sustainable production of tubes, pipes, and wires.

We cordially invite you to visit us at our booth B04 in hall 7a for a personal exchange of ideas and to experience our answers for the future. 

Be our guest!
