FAKUMA 2023 impressed more than 39,000 trade visitors. With the thematic pillars of digitalization, automation, flexibility, energy efficiency and sustainability, the organizers were once again able to score points. On 85,000 square meters, the exhibitors presented a host of innovations and gave a confident outlook for the future, including the recycling of plastics. The establishment of closed material cycles, product optimization for recycling and the processing of recyclates for high-quality applications were at the top of the agenda. Of course, the recycling pioneers from MGG Polymers were not to be missed at this industry highlight. With a new exhibition stand and a total of eight employees, the company from Kematen presented itself as an innovative and competent partner when it comes to recycling, sustainability and the circular economy.
Challenging economic times bring price to the fore
This year's trade fair was another successful one for MGG Polymers. With a new exhibition stand - the largest in the company's history - the recyclers from the Mostviertel region attracted attention. "It felt a little less crowded than in previous years, but that allowed more room for detailed and high-quality discussions," summarized Darko Huskic, Sales Manager of MGG Polymers, after his return. "We were able to make an exceptionally large number of contacts this year and had excellent discussions. A huge topic was the price issue, which is still due to the challenging economic situation. In general, however, the industry is clearly looking to the future."
