Durable extra capacity at Tube 2008 Developing countries bring Europe shorter lead times

Teekay one of the exhibitor's

CBI is proud to present eight companies from India and Egypt at Tube 2008, a significant trade fair for precision tubes and pipes. Proud because these companies offer a great package to the European industry. An industry which is dealing with capacity shortage and price pressure. CBI assists on both issues.
The event will take place from the 30th of March to the 4th of April in the Düsseldorf Messe.

The companies selected to participate in Germany have been carefully audited by the CBI on product quality, consistency and reliability and have completed a strict multi-year Export Coaching Programme.

They are ready to tackle the challenges that lie ahead in Europe and offer high quality products at reasonable prices. But perhaps more important; they offer production capacity and shorter lead times as well. This obviously creates great outsourcing opportunities for European firms.

CBI will introduce manufacturers of a complete tube and pipe range, varying from flanges, forgings, butt weld type pipe fittings, electric resistance welded tubes, galvanised and black tubes used for scaffolding and fencing, capacitor discharge welding tubes and much more.

Visitors can find these CBI-companies in hall 8B – stand number F28. During the exhibition, they may also have a confidential meeting with the CBI product consultant. He can match make them with the most suitable manufacturer. This is all free of charge.
