Welcome to EUROGUSS Newsroom!

A really big advantage with this event is the fact that the right target groups, both in terms of quantity and quality, come to Nuremberg”, said Gerd Röders, Chairman of the Verband Deutscher Druckgießereien (VDD, Association of German Pressure Die-casters). And Dr. Timo Würz, General Secretary CEMAFON, The European Foundry Equipment Suppliers Association, summed up the event: “Our member companies’ stands were very well frequented.

This is a good indication of maintaining the good results achieved in 2015 once again in 2016.” Heike Slotta, Director Exhibitions, NürnbergMesse, is also delighted: “The mood in the exhibition halls was really good. Hall six, which was occupied for the first time this year, was immediately well received by exhibitors and visitors alike. Once again, it has been confirmed: Nuremberg is home to the die-casting sector.”
