Industry 4.0 and the latest technical innovations were also present once again at the discussion centre.

Over 100 exhibitors from around the world were also present, including ELIX Polymers, who presented visitors with its new portfolio of high temperature-resistant ABS and its new ABS grades for chrome-plating applications. The company was represented by Fabian Herter, Automotive Industry Manager, Alexander Lupke, Regional Sales Manager, and Pedro Abad, Automotive Business Development Manager.

“The conference was a very positive experience and there was a high level of interest in our new materials for chrome-plating and PC/ABS. This is an event that we can’t afford to miss, as we meet our key audiences of German OEMs and Tiers, where we can discuss the new trends in the automotive industry”, explained Fabian Herter.
