As part of the cross-manufacturer cooperation Cordless Alliance System (CAS) we´ve been invited to present our range of CAS-battery powered tools. The main exhibitor Metabo now cancelled the participation at the show, so we won´t be exhibiting at the hardware fair at Cologne, this year.
We invite you to visit us at our booth at the sheet metal fair “EuroBLECH” at Hannover – hall 15, booth B 06 from 27th to 30th of October 2020,
where we will present new products and innovations for grinding, polishing and cutting.
We´re looking forward to your visit!

CAS initiator Metabo names responsibility for employes as the reason
Nürtingen, February 2020: Metabo, the main exhibitor of the cross-manufacturer cooperation Cordless Alliance System (CAS), has cancelled its planned participation in the hardware trade fair in Cologne. The reason given by Metabo's management is the difficulty in estimating the risk of infection with the corona virus and the resulting responsibility towards employees and partners.
"This decision is a very unpleasant one, because it feels that there is no real alternative", says Horst Garbrecht, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Metabo. "Together with a number of our CAS partners, we very much would have been liked to be in Cologne to convince trade visitors and dealers of the idea and advantages of this cross-manufacturer battery system with currently 17 partners," says Garbrecht. But: "The information about infection risks and health consequences is rather ambivalent overall. That's why we decided not to take any risks here and to cancel our participation in the trade fair, although the preparations for this were already almost complete," explains Garbrecht.
