157,000 visitors from all over the world attended the six-day event. The industrial aspect combined with the large user component made it a particularly exciting trade fair for us. Products for safety, rescue, emergency and emergency lighting are one of our areas of expertise, which we work on passionately.
The new cutters from the 5000 series introduced at this event are lighter than ever thanks to new materials, component integration and clever design. Because they are portable and easy to handle, they are physically less taxing. In addition to the cutters, the 5000 series spreaders and the Spider Range of hydraulic pumps with ECO whisper mode were also on the Holmatro stand; all products that we developed together with Holmatro.
One of the spectacular parts of the fair was the Holmatro Rescue Experience. During the 'Extrication Challenge' 26 rescue teams from around the world were challenged to release a passenger from a (brand new!) car in 20 minutes, using the Holmatro rescue equipment. This was a unique opportunity for rescue workers, who had the chance to practice their skills on the latest vehicle models. Before the start, every team got a ‘Working with Holmatro Rescue Equipment’ training and a Masterclass in ‘Practical Cutting Techniques’. The Best All-Round Team, the Best Technical Team and the Team with the Best Team Spirit all went home with a extensive set of Holmatro rescue tools.
