Hannover Messe 2017
In April, Abbey Seals took the ‘International’ title quite literally and spent a week exhibiting at the largest industrial show in the world; Hannover Messe. 5 days, 6,500 fellow exhibitors and 225,000 professionals in attendance; to say it is an impressive spectacle does not do it justice. Motion, Drive & Automation is the focus of the show on a biennial basis which features companies involved in transmission and fluid power technologies; the perfect place for Abbey Seals to showcase our extensive range of seals and gaskets to the international market.
The team entrusted with representing the company for the week comprised of Jason Flanagan; Sales Director, Mark Woods; Sales and Thomas McCarthy; Product Specialist or the ‘Dream Team’ as they like to call themselves.
Feedback from the event was extremely positive both in terms of the many new contacts made and the level of interest in our manufacturing and distribution capabilities. Plus there was the added bonus of having the chance to meet up with our colleagues from the major brands we exclusively distribute for in Ireland. Furthermore, in this Brexit era, it was especially important to remind our EU neighbours that we ship to all countries in the EU and also worldwide.
The ‘Dream Team’ returned from Hannover a little tired but very optimistic and booking their flights for 2019.
