ModuleWorks at LIGNA 2015
We have recently returned to work after a busy week at LIGNA, the trade show for the woodworking industry, held at the Hanover Fairground in Hanover, Germany. The biggest woodworking trade show in Europe runs for 5 days and takes place every other year.
More than 1500 exhibitors took part, showing their latest technology to more than 96,000 attendees on over 120,000 square meters of floor space. Integration and high efficiency were the watch words of the show.
The ModuleWorks booth was located in Hall 14 and well attended over the course of the show, keeping our team very busy. Many of our partners stopped by to talk through our latest developments for the woodworking industry and show how they were using ModuleWorks technology to make their customers more effective. We were also pleased to meet many new prospects who are looking to expand their software products for woodworking.
We took some time out to visit the machine tools hall and see the latest developments. From our look around it appears the established machine tool companies are increasingly developing high technology processing products for the automotive, facade, yacht building and aerospace industries.
Jens Beissel, Marketing Manager for ModuleWorks, talked about the show, “It was a very busy week for all of us, but a very enjoyable one. It was good to meet so many of partners in the woodworking industry who are reaping the benefits of our technology with new and expanded software products for woodworking. It was clear the industry is on an upswing driven by the uptake of new manufacturing technology”.
Until the next time
