techtextil in Anaheim/USA – Business expansion at a global level

As representatives of the German textile industry, numerous German companies demonstrated their innovative strength and leading role under the umbrella of the “German Pavilion” at the North American techtextil trade show, which was held in Anaheim, California, between 19 and 21 March 2013. The joint exhibition area shared by German companies at one of the most important trade shows for technical textiles was backed by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi) and, for many visitors to the trade fair, constituted an important information point for finding out about the latest product innovations. As one of the exhibitors, Fidlock showcased its portfolio of high-performance fastener solutions for a wide range of technical textiles and application areas.

“We were surprised at the huge response to our trade show stand. Many international trade show visitors approached us directly to find out more about the high-quality and secure fastener concepts based on our Fidlock Principle,” reported Christian Schöne, Managing Director of Fidlock GmbH. “We were particularly pleased that for many visitors from the international market, Fidlock has already become a synonym for reliable magnetic-mechanical fasteners. Our exhibition at techtextil brought us a number of very promising contacts for renowned manufacturers in different industry sectors. And California offers an attractive range of innovative companies in this respect – from the sport, leisure and automotive industries through to the orthopaedics, medical, transportation and military sectors.”

Fidlock at ISPO MUNICH 2013

Between 3 and 6 February 2013, Fidlock will be presenting its current portfolio of fastener solutions at ISPO MUNICH at stand 613 in hall B6. The around 80,000 visitors to the leading international trade fair for the sports industry can look forward to a comprehensive offering of sporting goods, athletic shoes and fashionable sportswear presented by around 2,300 exhibitors from over 100 countries. And the range of application possibilities for the innovative Fidlock fasteners is just as extensive:

they can be used to close helmets, bags, rucksacks and shoes, or used on items of clothing or to attach and adjust sport accessories on tents, boats and bicycles – the multi-award-winning fastener technology based on the Fidlock principle delivers high-performance solutions for all areas and also boasts an attractive, individual design, a high degree of safety and simple, one-hand operation.

Pull follows push: following on from the successful launch of the SNAP push fastener solution, which generated great interest last year thanks to its easy opening principle with a single “push” that still ensures secure closure, Fidlock will be revealing the new SNAP pull product family for the first time at this year’s ISPO. The special feature: the pull fasteners can be opened easily with a simple “pull” and can be applied “invisibly”. This not only gives designers added value in terms of functionality, but also more flexibility in the design of the product and placement of the logo thanks to the “invisible look”.

Furthermore, Fidlock will also be showcasing some new additions to the SNAP push series, such as the design highlight SNAP push glossy, a high-quality polycarbonate fastener designed for 20 mm wide fastener straps with a sophisticated, glossy surface and rounded edges. Last but not least, the showcase will also include two new fasteners that are particularly flat: the SNAP buckle flat 30 and 40 are perfectly suited as belt fasteners, for example.

In Munich, Fidlock will also be demonstrating further application areas for the tried-and-tested fastener technologies with examples from a range of different sports.

Interested trade visitors are welcome to contact info@fidlock.com in advance to arrange an appointment.

Ispo Bike 2012 – Fastener solutions for bicycles

One of the highlights in the cycling enthusiasts’ calendar is taking place between 16 and 19 August 2012: ISPO Bike will be opening its doors to exhibitors and trade visitors.

ISPO Bike combines the commercial aspects of the bicycle market with the emotions of cycling. The focus of this year’s bike event will be on the future topic of e-mobility. All aspects of the trendy topic of urban biking will also be presented in Munich. With bicycles, clothing and accessories, Ispo Bike has something for everyone.

In Hall A6, Stand 106, Fidlock will be exhibiting its award-winning fastener systems – based on the Fidlock Principle – that offer perfect solutions for bicycles. Visitors will have the opportunity to witness the high level of flexibility that Fidlock fastener solutions offer in multiple application areas.

As an absolute highlight at the trade fair stand, Fidlock will be presenting new solutions that ensure flexible and secure attachment – and easy release – of various items of biking equipment and accessories. The fastening technology offers the bicycle market completely new opportunities for attaching panniers, drinking flasks, lights or even air pumps to the bike with a quick “snap” and release them again with just one hand. In everyday use, cyclists benefit from a higher level of convenience, making biking more fun without compromising on safety. For example, with magnetic/mechanical connections, cyclists can attach a helmet camera in one smooth motion and position it correctly on the helmet. This means in future it will be possible to experience the fun of downhill biking over and over again!

Further highlights at the trade fair stand include tried-and-tested fasteners such as the user-friendly Fidlock SNAP helmet buckle that revolutionised the traditional helmet buckle. The Fidlock showcase at Ispo Bike 2012 will also include the SNAP push and the new SNAP secure fasteners. It goes without saying that functionality, safety and fun are guaranteed with all Fidlock fastener solutions.

Fidlock – success at Techtextil in Atlanta

The focus on Techtextil in Atlanta, USA, was on innovative fastener solutions for a wide range of technical textiles and application areas – from protective and outdoor clothing through to textiles used in the transportation, medical, road and building construction industries.

At the trade fair stand, product designers and purchasers from international manufacturing firms had the opportunity to witness the highly convincing performance characteristics of the high-function fasteners featuring the Fidlock Concept and discuss how they are used with technical textiles – for example for workwear, protective clothing, sport and leisure.

According to Christian Schöne, Managing Director of Fidlock GmbH, the trade fair offered the perfect platform to address existing and potential customers from the textile industry in the North American market, to meet with experts and to promote business for Fidlock further on an international scale.

Fidlock at ISPO Munich 2012

At this year’s ISPO in Munich – the leading international trade fair for the sports industry – Fidlock showcased its innovative fastener systems.

Fidlock fastener solutions for the sports industry

At this year’s ISPO in Munich the focus was on the magnetic fastener technology based on the Fidlock Principle, that offers particular advantages for sports products: high levels of safety and easy, one-hand operation! The product characteristics of Fidlock fasteners convinced the interested trade visitors across the board: they were particularly impressed by the automatic closing feature and convenient one-hand operation. For many manufacturers, these advantages have already become an important component of their sports goods. The new Porsche Design Sport collection from adidas was used to showcase several application examples, as it integrates Fidlock fasteners and combines high-quality materials with attractive design and sophisticated functionality. The showcase also included helmet and bag fasteners in addition to fixtures for spectacles and other sporting equipment.

The presentation of a new addition to the SNAP fastener range was one of the highlights at the Fidlock trade fair stand and gave trade visitors the opportunity to convince themselves of the advantages of the SNAP push, a fastener that offers maximum flexibility and meets all the demands for the attachment of sporting equipment or the alignment and adjustment of carrying straps: easy to open with a single "push" and quick to "snap" close – guaranteeing fun + function. One thing is certain: following the success of ISPO 2012, Fidlock will also be represented at the next ISPO BIKE 2012 with its tried-and-tested fastener solutions – and visitors can look forward to new application examples and innovative solutions.
