The European Coatings Show returned triumphantly to Nuremberg after four years, gathering together almost 25,000 visitors from 42 countries. A strong force of over 1,000 international exhibitors offered innovative solutions covering the entire coatings market. Sustainability proved a major topic and the focus of many exhibits.
The Thor team was delighted to meet up with so many existing and potential customers, many from Europe but also plenty from around the globe.
Of particular interest was the use of ACTICIDE® C 1, a new product utilising Thor’s unique pure CIT technology now authorised for use in all member states of the EU, especially for raw materials and intermediates. We also had many enquiries about ACTICIDE® products from the MK series based on Thor’s AMME™ technology, where we were promoting new and innovative products using our proven active substance encapsulation technology to support the EU market with modern sustainable dry-film preservation solutions such as ACTICIDE® MKN 10.
Dr. Markus Hobbold, Sales Director for Industrial Biocides & Disinfectants, who co-ordinated Thor's exhibit, reported "Although it was not clear in advance how many customers would visit the ECS, we at Thor decided to be present again and we definitely feel this was the right decision. Many customers visited us and we had good positive conversations and feedback. I would like to thank everyone for their commitment and support over all three days of the fair."
We look forward to seeing everyone again at ECS 2025!
