Leitz successfully exhibited at the Holz-Handwerk trade fair in Nuremberg from 21 to 24 March 2018. Under the motto „Solutions in new dimensions“, the world market leader from Oberkochen presented forward-looking service concepts and innovations for the woodworking and wood processing industries. The stand was very well attended on all days and attracted many customers and other interested parties. Management and shareholders spoke of a successful trade fair and expect good follow-up business going forwards.
One focus at this year’s Holz-Handwerk was the regrinding service. In recent years, Leitz has succeeded in establishing an unrivalled proximity to customers with its global network of highly qualified service points and pick-up and delivery service for all tools. The new service concept “LeitzXPress” was presented for the first time in Nuremberg. By pressing the LeitzXPress button, the customer triggers a process, at the end of which a direct contact is established with the relevant technical consultant. In less than an hour, the customer will be called back personally to discuss the reason for the contact or to make an appointment for a visit.
Furthermore, the range of tools for window and door production from Leitz was shown at the Holz-Handwerk 2018 stand in order to address visitors to the Fensterbau Frontale trade fair, which took place in parallel at the Nuremberg exhibition grounds. Here Leitz showcased two new products: The ClimaTrend Style window system which can be produced extremely economically and to meet high market requirements with regard to design and functionality together with the Patio Inowa sliding door and window systems which were developed in cooperation with RoTo and other well-known project partners.
