Gates presence at the Hanover Fair 2003 was a success

From 7 to 12 April 2003, Gates Fluid Power division was again present at the Hanover Fair, Europe’s largest industrial fair.  With the new EnviroFluid™ spiral hose in the spotlight and a lot of interested decision making visitors, the fair was a success for Gates.     

At the fair, Gates introduced its EnviroFluid™ hydraulic hose tube, a spiral hose with outstanding compatibility with most biodegradable hydraulic fluids.  “The launch of this new spiral hose was well received and was the center of customer discussions”, comments Tribby Warfield, Sales & Marketing Director for Gates Fluid Power in Europe.  Other products in the picture were TuffCoat™, a new, enhanced zinc-based corrosion resistant coating for Gates hydraulic couplings, the XtraTuff™ and MegaTuff® abrasion resistant hydraulic hose coverings and Gates top quality no-skive couplings. 

"Whilst the attendance appeared to be down from previous exhibitions, it was very clear that those who did attend were the serious and focused decision makers. I found the exhibition very exciting and lively despite current economic conditions in the USA and some parts of Europe. All in all, Hanover 2003 was a success for Gates Fluid Power and we will benefit from the new contacts made at the fair", Warfield adds. 

The Gates fluid power division offers an integrated line of high-performance hydraulic hoses, couplings and crimping equipment for applications in the agricultural, industrial and construction markets.
