These businesses will be showcasing their latest innovations across165,000 m² of exhibition and event space, to an anticipated 47,000 international visitors.

ToughBuilt will use its presence at Eisenwarenmesse to further its ongoing expansion into Europe and showcase never-seen-before products to existing and prospective customers.

Existing products include ToughBuilt's category leading sawhorses, which enjoy a large and loyal following with construction professionals around the globe, as well as the manufacturer's unique ClipTech™ system of belts, pouches, tool bags, totes, and accessories.

Speaking of the company's plans, Matt Handley, ToughBuilt's European Head of Marketing, said: "The ToughBuilt team is genuinely excited about exhibiting at Eisenwarenmesse. The sheer scale and global appeal of the show means it offers us an exceptional opportunity to showcase our ever-evolving product offer to both new and existing customers throughout Europe and further afield.

"Following our European launch, we were originally scheduled to make our debut appearance at the event in 2020 but sadly, the pandemic put paid to those plans. This year, and as visitors to our stand will soon discover, we've every intention of making up for lost time.

"We urge all visitors to make a note of our stand number and stop by to see our extensive range as well as enjoy some fine refreshments."
