K 2019 - Strong Momentum for the OLBRICH Group

With around 225,000 visitors from 165 countries, K once again impressively maintained its position as the world's leading trade fair for the plastics and rubber industry.

For eight days, Messe Düsseldorf was once again the international hot spot for this sector. We, OLBRICH GmbH, have also drawn a positive balance for the exhibition.

"For us as machine and plant builders in the field of plastics processing, the trade fair was a complete success," says Jens Krebber, Director International Business Development and Marketing. "The joint appearance with our 100% subsidiary Polytype Converting GmbH led to lively interest in our entire product portfolio. In addition to various inquiries for coating and laminating lines for the film and foil industry, other visitors emphasized their interest in our new machine concepts for the production of floor coverings, wallcoverings and technical textiles".

Josef Döing, Director Sales, further confirms this statement: "We registered many serious enquiries. On the one hand, new applications in coating technology were in great demand, and on the other, combinations of proven technologies such as embossing, laminating and drying were very popular. In cooperation with OLBRICH, many visitors will now engage in specific development projects and utilize the capabilities of our state-of-the-art technical centre. Overall, we are very satisfied with the response to this year's K and we are already looking forward to strong follow-up business".
