Live again at last: EK at glasstec

Nothing replaces personal contact. This was one of the findings after our team’s extremely successful appearance at glasstec in Düsseldorf, the world’s largest and most important trade fair for glass as a material. After a break of several years due to the pandemic, trade visitors were finally able to hold personal discussions with their contacts at EK again.

The main focus was on the many exciting and smart innovations in connection technology that the EK trade fair team presented to stand visitors from a wide range of industries. One of the premieres: the hybrid steel longitudinal connector with plastic bridge(see here), which combines the two worlds of EK STEEL and EK POLO Connect. For highly insulating high-performance spacers, EK also presented optimized corner and model angles as well as completely new crossbar connectors.

The cross connectors for HPS spacers also made their trade show debut. And with SMARELIO Protect(see here), EK is now integrating digital safety technology. Seeing our products live, experiencing their function and feeling their quality – these are benefits for which trade shows remain important.

In addition to product innovations, discussions with trade visitors often revolved around punctual deliveries. “Our partners in the insulating glass industry expect first-class product quality from us anyway,” explains Ralf M. Kronenberg. “We were also able to assure our customers: As part of the increasing digitization of our company, we are consistently aligning the corresponding measures with the goal of always delivering on time.”
