For over 50 years, the International Hardware Fair has been hosted in Koln, Germany. The fair runs every two years and has been recognized as the leading trade show in both the hardware and tools industries, with 2,665 exhibitors from 50 countries showcasing their new and existing products to 53,500 visitors from 132 countries.
Anglo American Tools will be attending the show from March 9th – 12th to meet and re-connect with various existing factory partners in order to discuss the potential and expansion of their product lines here in the US. This allows the opportunity to supply our customers and end-users with the widest range of problem-solving, high-quality European hand tools possible.
While discussing new opportunities with existing partners, Anglo will also be utilizing their time to explore new brands from European factories with the possibility of creating additions to their current line of innovative hand tools.
Anglo’s team attending the show will be the President / CEO, Stephen Tuck; Treasurer, Sheila Tuck; Vice President of Sales, Greg Genevro; and Marketing Manager, Kyle Williams.
Stephen has attended the show at least a dozen times, to browse new lines of tools in order to take advantage of new opportunities as well as meet with existing suppliers to discuss strategic initiatives. In addition, Sheila will be joining the Anglo team this year and looks forward to reconnecting with many factory representatives and friends. Also attending the fair will be Greg Genevro and Kyle Williams, who are both anxious to communicate face to face with the manufacturers about the future of Anglo and the new and innovative directions it will take to help grow each brand in today’s US industrial market.
In addition to the show, Anglo American Tools will take advantage of several factory tours in order to obtain a better understanding of the outstanding quality and hard work that is put into the design and development of every hand tool.
The team attending the show is excited about their trip and looks forward to exploring new opportunities.
