Norbert Asen, President & CEO MACH ROTEC GmbH

"We welcome this rational decision to postpone the GrindTec, especially as, in addition to the well-known risks for companies, employees and visitors, it became apparent that the number of visitors would not be sufficient to attend the trade fair, so that a "trade fair flop" was inevitable in the meantime, due to the high expenditure and costs involved. As trade fairs are not entirely time-critical, we appreciate the shown assumption of responsibility by the trade fair management, as well as the shown flexibility of Augsburg as a trade fair location, and we are looking forward to a GrindTec in Augsburg in autumn 2020."
