Assembly optimization is the focus of the sanitation area at SHK+E ESSEN

Simple, fast and safe - especially in the sanitation sector, the development of techniques to optimize the assembly process is a sensible step to meet current requirements. The demand on the part of the trade for corresponding solutions from the industry is high. This applies all the more in times of shortage of skilled workers, in which time-optimized work processes and improved safety are indispensable factors for economic success. For this reason, Messe Essen and the SHK NRW trade association are placing efficient assembly techniques in the focus of the upcoming SHK+E ESSEN from March 19 to 22, 2024. Interested sanitation manufacturers can register now in order to present their products to new customers in a publicity-effective manner.

Everything that makes installation as simple and efficient as possible for the trade is in demand. This includes, among other things, fittings, piping components as well as tools and techniques for fastening and sealing. In order to present these to visitors in an efficient and time-optimized manner, there will be special tours, a visitors guide and lectures. "The demand on the part of the trade is enormous. More than 15 exhibitors from the sanitation sector have already registered for the topic. With SHK+E ESSEN, we are offering the sanitation industry the ideal platform to meet this demand. This can involve individual or system solutions," explains Torben Brinkmann, Project Manager of SHK+E ESSEN.

Hüppe, Kaldewei and Wavin return to Essen

In addition to heating and air conditioning technology in Halls 1 and 3, sanitation objects, sanitation installations and water technology make up the largest part of SHK+E ESSEN. Exhibitors in Halls 6, 7 and 8 include, for example, BWT Wassertechnik, Duravit, Geberit, GROHE, Grünbeck Wasseraufbereitung, Gebr. Kemper, Hansgrohe, Hans Sasserath, HSK Duschkabinenbau, JUDO Wasseraufbereitung, SCHELL, TECE and VIEGA. In addition, visitors can expect to see Hüppe, Kaldewei and Wavin, several well-known returnees who did not exhibit last time and are now back.

Optimizing installation is just one of several topics currently affecting the sanitation industry. At SHK+E ESSEN, the focus will therefore also be on digital bathroom planning, resource conservation as well as design and function. Tradesmen, contractors, experts as well as TGA planners and architects, for example, will be visiting the Essen trade fair across all trades. 69 percent of them are decision-makers involved in purchasing and procurement. More than 60 percent of the visitors are also particularly interested in sanitation topics. Interested exhibitors can find the registration documents online at
