Luvata showcases diversity at Productronica 2009
Productronica 2009, the world’s leading international trade fair for innovative electronics production, was held in Munich November 10 - 13, 2009 attracting over 1,150 exhibitors and 28,000 visitors. Luvata Rolled Products and Special Products divisions joined forces to display Luvata's extensive portfolio at the trade show.
“Although attendance was down compared with approximately 40,500 attendees in 2007, there appears to be a light at the end of the tunnel with Luvata customers suggesting orders are picking up. We were quite pleased to learn our partners’ order books are picking up and that they are more optimistic concerning recovery of the global economy,” comments Rolf Reitz, General Sales Manager with Luvata Sales Oy Germany.
Luvata’s focus for the show included anodes, photovoltaic SunwireTM and rolled copper and brass strip and sheet products attracting customers from stamping, connectors, printed circuit board and other electronics applications. With Luvata’s diverse offering of products, potential customers for formed welding caps were also attracted to the few samples on display, while enquiries for our Metallurgy Applications group concerning cooling elements also surfaced.
“Although our goal for the show was to highlight our anodes, solar products and rolled copper and brass products, Productronica attracts Luvata customers and potential customers from all over the world and from many different industries. We can’t always answer every question that arises during the show, but we can certainly put them in touch with our Luvata colleagues who can,” states Norbert Weidehoff, Sales Manager with Luvata Sales Oy Germany.
The next Productronica will take place at the new Munich Trade Center November 15-18, 2011.
