2nd EKU Development Days

As a result of the extremely positive response to the inaugural event in 2011, the second EKU Development Days took place in Sirnach in 2013. The purpose of the event was to give our dealership and industry partners a detailed insight into the product innovations and also ensure that cabinet makers and joiners were provided with the best possible information about new products. The new EKU developments will be introduced to the general public at interzum, the world's biggest trade fair for suppliers to the furniture industry and interior finishings in Cologne, and will be available for delivery to fabricators from July 2013.

During the 2nd EKU Development Days event, the specialist press was invited to a guided press tour in order to give them a preview of EKU's interzum highlights. The specialist media showed a considerable amount of interest in this event: this year, ten representatives from leading media companies in Germany, Austria and Switzerland took part. As well the latest product developments, an insight into production was also given. Managing director Heinz Schmidthauser presented EKU's differentiating features and replied to questions from the specialist press in an open discussion forum.
