RECORD-BREAKING BUSWORLD 2015
34,932 visitors from 118 countries, more than 400 exhibitors from all over the world – the Busworld fair in Kortrijk/Belgium from October 16 to October 21, 2015, registered record figures in terms of visitors and exhibitors this year. For friedola®TECH the bus exhibition went very well. The company exhibited for the first time on the bus fair.
The lightweight and sturdy plastic linings for load compartments received great attention of the professional visitors. All three standard lines of the load floor – “Allround”, “Strong” and “Safestep” – and the entire range of van liners were asked very much. Visitors also reviewed fleece covered Con-Pearl® products for the application as side panels in busses.
friedola®TECH received numerous project requests and first orders directly after the show – including requests from major bus manufacturers from Asia, South America and Eastern Europe.
„The lightweight construction solutions from friedola®TECH become more and more popular“, says Kemal Ilkilic, Key account manager in the area of Automotives with friedola®TECH, „ As part of the transition from Euro 5 to Euro 6, new engines with additional weight of about 300 kg are installed in the vehicles. Such technical conditions and current legislative proposals make weight saving and lowering of fuel consumption an increasing challenge for the bus manufacturers.”
