CeMAT exceeds all expectations for A-Safe

01 June 2011

With over 1,000 innovations on show, CeMAT – an intralogistics trade fair – drew to a close on 6 May 2011, having featured companies such as safety barrier specialists A-Safe UK, based in Halifax

Attending CeMAT is part of ambitious plans for the future from Directors James and Luke Smith, who have visualised A-Safe as a globally evolving British company for its polymer based safety solutions, offering a full end to end service from risk assessment, to installation, to aftercare for its growing portfolio of discerning international customers.

James and Luke attended all five days together with senior colleagues Holger Ragge and Markus Kaumanns from GmbH and Han de Loos, recently appointed Director for the Benelux countries.

Dr Andreas Gruchow, Managing Board member at Deutsche Messe in charge of CeMAT was noted to say at the end of the show: “...Intralogistics also brings opportunities for considerable savings in time, costs and energy, making it a key factor for successful competition in the international marketplace”.

This statement reflected James Smith’s view, being directly relevant to A-Safe in vouchsafing: “A-Safe barriers fulfils the sustaining criteria because, unlike steel, our barriers have inherent strength and structural memory, allowing them to buckle on impact, dissipating impact forces and then springing back to the original state; thus reducing costs in maintenance, replacement, floor and truck damage”.

James went on to report his overall comments on the show: “This exhibition, more than any other, had a truly international feel to it. The Germans certainly know how to produce a first class international show and this was reflected in the both the number, and quality, of the leads we received from senior representatives of Blue Chip companies worldwide, from the USA to Australia and all points in between including well respected companies like UPS, VW and TNT.

“We had nearly 1000 enquiries over the five day period and all five of us were extremely busy in making business contacts, with nearly half wanting to be resellers, such was our popularity.”
