BENTELER presented new products and innovations at Tube 2016

The BENTELER booth at Tube 2016

At the Tube 2016 from April 4 to 8, 2016, BENTELER Steel/Tube and BENTELER Distribution presented themselves jointly as an innovative and reliable development partner for the automotive, industry and energy markets. The two divisions of the BENTELER-Group showed a variety of tailor-made components and steel tube solutions in Dusseldorf.

Highlights of the nearly 500 square meter exhibition booth were with Zista® Seal the presentation of a new generation of surface protection and the presentation of the new hot rolling mill in Shreveport, USA, from BENTELER Steel/Tube. The first North American production site of the division places particularly the emphasis on customer proximity as a competent, strategic development partner.

Another highlight: BENTELER Distribution presented its central warehouse, which has been opened in October 2015 in Duisburg. The heart of the new warehouse is a fully automated high-bay rack, which with a height of 25 meters and 10,000 storage cassettes is the largest high-bay rack for the storage of tubes in Europe. This ensures speed in order picking. So BENTELER Distribution can serve its customers even faster and better.

In a pleasant atmosphere, numerous discussions and networking with customers took place at five fair days. Altogether 69,500 trade visitors from 130 countries came to the Tube, mostly from Germany, Italy, Turkey, France, Poland and the Netherlands. With over 65 percent the share of international trade fair visitors is very high, nearly a third came from oversea.
