This year’s HannoverMesse was visited by more than 215,000 visitors including ~40% international attendants joining this industrial fair with ~6500 global exhibitors. Among those exhibitors was JTEKT/Koyo with a booth in hall 22 displaying its latest bearing products and related technologies. As usual Koyo’s booth was well visited by industry experts, branch representatives, the press, students and other interested attendants. Among those visitors were several valued Koyo distributors, including Künemund, Kugellager Premium, Mondial, Ditzinger, Dono, PWO, Ubex, HL Group, Enso and others, that attended our cocktail drink on the Wednesday late afternoon to catch up with each other and exchange in a friendly spirit. During the fair our Partner Kugellager Premium invited us for joint visits to different OE customers. The open discussions were very fruitful and will reinforce our strategy to grow the aftermarket business through our distribution network.
This event again contributed successfully to the expansion and intensification of Koyo’s business activities in the roller bearing markets in “greater” Europe and beyond.
A Roller Bearing is really an extraordinary piece of mechanical engineering. The smallest types have a diameter of no more than a few millimeters and are used in dentist drilling devices with maximum rotation speeds of more than 30.000 rpm, while the largest ones are used in tunnel drilling equipment and measure more than 7 meters in diameter, while rotating at no more than a few rpm's per day.
