The world's leading trade fair was supposed to take place in April, as usual every three years, but was postponed to October due to the pandemic. We were all the more pleased to meet friends and business partners from all over the world in person. The industry-specific exchange is always a gain. New contacts were made and we were able to successfully tie up with our existing customers on topics of original equipment (OEM) as well as maintenance and repair (MRO). There was great interest in the PARA clamp, HANSA‑FLEX's own development for virtually tool-free cable pre-assembly. The patent-pending innovation could be tried out for the first time at the HANSA‑FLEX stand.
