Interschutz 2015 – Long Hours And Sore Feet
That’s it for another 5 years, the word’s largest fire show, featuring the largest mass of fire trucks ever assembled –
1,500 exhibitors from 51 nations met 157,000 visitors and Sliding Systems chose this platform to launch the new product ranges, specifically targeted at vehicle builders and brigades. The 6 day event is renowned for the punishing long hours and our 5 stand staff met with over 260 OEM builders from almost 50 countries, approximately 1 every 11 minutes, and that’s not counting the engineers, designers and buyers from these organisations.
”It was worth the sore feet and fast restroom dashes” – Group Technical Director, Jon Lye.
Jon sums it up – ” This is our third Interschutz and our view is that if you miss it then that’s a 5 year wait to get back into the market. We were the only company displaying truck stowage systems from heavy duty drawer slides through to professional tool mounting brackets. So we had the perfect platform to launch the new ULTIO non corrosive drawer slides and announce the exclusive partnership with SlideMaster, the US market leader for cargo carriers.”
‘Eduard and ‘I would like to thank everyone who visited the stand and discussed their ongoing requirements. Our quality and pricing policy were well received, aided that we now have the Asian facility to stock and service a much wider market. Dealing directly with our engineers was a big positive we have taken from the show, with the ability to order online from dual stock hubs. Having our manufacturing and supply chain partners visit the stand throughout the week was a real bonus and the ‘awesome’ Drew and Bonnie from SlideMaster rolled their sleeves up and got stuck in. This was much appreciated”
”We have 5 years for the feet to stop aching and prepare for 2020…… but now we focus is on DSEI, the world’s largest defence show in September.”
