Saxony-Anhalt at Fakuma 2017
From 17 to 21 October 2017, Saxony-Anhalt will show innovations in the field of plastics and plastics technologies at the trade show Fakuma in Friedrichshafen.
At the joint stand of the federal state of Saxony-Anhalt at booth FO-54, small and medium-sized companies from Saxony-Anhalt present innovations and application examples in the field of industrial plastic processing.
The state of Saxony-Anhalt offers an important support in this area to enable small and medium-sized enterprises to gain access to new markets.
With the organization of the joint stand of the federal state, an important economic contribution is made by implementing the entire preparation, execution and follow-up of the fair by IMG. The Investment and Marketing Corporation Saxony-Anhalt (IMG) is commissioned by the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Science and Digititalisation, and works with funds from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
Fakuma in Friedrichshafen is the international trade fair for plastic processing and will be held for the 25th time this year. More than 40,000 trade visitors from 120 countries are expected. Over 1,700 exhibitors from more than 30 nations present a wide range of processing machines and related peripherals, raw materials and applications, automation solutions and C-techniques. The focus is on injection molding, extrusion technology, thermoforming and 3D printing.

Experts in Plastics
In times of dwindling fossil fuels and growing demands on environmental and climate protection, the chemicals and plastics industry must have a rethink. New highly-efficient, polymerbased lightweight materials define the future. The trend for resource-efficient and energy-efficient production processes is opening up new opportunities.
Saxony-Anhalt has the necessary knowledge to find practicable solutions for these enormous global economic challenges.
From basic chemistry to the processing industry, the entire value added chain is already covered within the state. In the centre of Europe, a centre of competence in polymer manufacturing and processing has developed here over decades. Existing clusters and compound structures, effective university and non-university research and industry-oriented research infrastructures enable effective technology and knowledge transfer. As a result, theory is implemented efficiently in practice.
- Saxony-Anhalt is the heart of the central German chemistry triangle and one of the most important chemical centers in Europe.
- An excellent availability of raw materials, local plastics producers and technologies suppliers as well as end customers from different sectors ensure efficient value chains.
- Sectoral research institutions support companies in their product development and market entry.
- Attractive siting areas, e.g. in one the five state-of-the-art chemistry parks of Saxony-Anhalt, the proximity to the markets of Western and Eastern Europe as well as a state-of-the-art infrastructure with best links to the European transport network allow efficient logistics - throughout Germany and worldwide.
