Fives present at Glasstec 2014, the trade fair which draws the world’s leading glassmakers

Fives - Glasstec 2014-FIVES

Fives presented its Glass offer from 21 to 24 October at Glasstec. This trade fair is held every two years in Düsseldorf, Germany, and draws the world's leading glassmakers as well as suppliers (refractories, transformers...). This year, Glasstec hosted nearly 1,300 exhibitors and received 43,000 visitors. The activity on the stand during the 4 days of the trade fair is apossible sign of business growth for 2015.

Fives  was well visible on its purple-coloured stand 90sqm booth. The Prium® equipment range had a prominent place on the booth and the service offer was also well present. Fives has met many of their customers on the booth. In four days, visitors of nearly 20 nationalities visited the stand. We could collect a lot of information and some projects may arise (or re-emerge) within 3 years, a sign for new growth drivers in the market.

Several events on the booth

As a novelty in 2014 a breakthrough innovation was presented on the Fives booth: the rotating knurl created by Fives, whose brand name is Prium® Bath TR Edge Control. A 1:1 scalemodel was exposed in motion and created a buzz on Glasstec. Fives was asked many questions and customers are impatient to see this knurl (scheduled at the end of 2015 after the test phase).

Three mini-conferences have also created the event on the stand :

  •  New Fives exclusive design, HRA technology 
  •  Advanced forming technology with the Prium® Forehearth equipment range
  •  The new generation of Top roll with the Prium® Bath TR Edge Control
