Nordmann appearing at the 2024 DKT with partners

From July 1-4, Nordmann will be exhibiting alongside partners Cancarb, Daikin, Ergon International, Imerys and Shenzhen Guanheng at the next DKT expo in Nuremberg – one of the world’s leading trade fairs for the rubber industry.

At this year’s DKT, a major focus for Nordmann will be on the importance of long-standing and dependable partnerships. Why? Only together with its partners can Nordmann offer the innovative products and fulfill the wide range of requirements that it does for customers on a day-to-day basis. In the world of business today that is characterized by constant change, long-term partnerships are invaluable – and often serve as remarkable testimonies of reliability, trust and shared values.

Director Global Sales & Marketing Brad Thompson of Cancarb, a global leader in thermal carbon black, comments: 


“We always enjoy co-exhibiting with Nordmann at the DKT. It is the most important event in Europe for the rubber industry and a great opportunity to meet customers – as well as showcase our products and services.”

Laurent Zielezinski, Vice President Sales at Daikin Chemical Europe, adds: 


“Our partnership with Nordmann represents a powerful synergy of expertise and innovation that has lasted nearly 50 years now. Collaborating in this way for almost half a century is something truly special, and the DKT will be an ideal opportunity to showcase Daikin’s latest advances in FKM. We’re looking forward to showing how we’re utilizing a new polymerization process without fluorosurfactants that underscores our commitment to a sustainable future.”

“In-depth, face-to-face exchange with partners has been, is and will always be the most important part of our relationships with customers and suppliers, as well as the basis for our shared success,” says Nordmann’s Global Sales Director CASE & Elastomers Torsten Heller emphatically. 


He adds: “In this respect, the DKT in Nuremberg is an excellent event. We are particularly pleased to welcome our new partner Ergon International as a co-exhibitor on our stand for the first time this year. Ergon International's naphthenic mineral oils are the perfect addition to our product portfolio for rubber manufacturing. Along with the ester plasticizers we can also now offer from Condensia – another of our new partners – we are able to supply customers with tailor-made, state-of-the-art materials of the highest quality for both polar and non-polar rubbers.”

Nordmann’s appearance with partners at the upcoming trade fair in Nuremberg will underscore the commitment it has always had toward collaborative efforts.

“DKT is the most important platform for the rubber industry, a place where industry, science and newcomers can come together, connect and work on new ideas that will be the future of the rubber industry. I am very pleased that Ergon International is set to take part in this unique event, and I warmly invite everyone to come visit us at Booth 101 in Hall 9 to share and discuss their ideas,” explains Dr. Cristina Bergmann, Business Development Director Process Oils at Ergon International, Inc.

Imerys will also be seeking out in-depth discussions with visitors at the DKT: “We want to highlight our portfolio of sustainable high-performance carbon for conductive rubbers at the trade fair and have the opportunity to meet customers in order to discuss their needs,” comments Eric Lachenait, Director of Sales Europe, Imerys Graphite & Carbon.

Shenzhen Guanheng’s Sales Director Helen Ye remarks: “We will be showcasing our versatile range of fluorosilicone rubbers at the DKT with our partner Nordmann and are very much looking forward to being a co-exhibitor with Nordmann.”

In addition to exhibiting alongside several of its partners in Nuremberg, Nordmann colleagues from all over Europe will also be in attendance, putting Nordmann’s wide international reach and solutions-oriented approach across national borders on clear display. Its own brands such as the high-quality NORCOMP silicone and fluorosilicone compounds also play a significant role in this respect. While the compounds are manufactured by external companies, the Nordmann team is responsible for their development, raw material selection and quality assurance. Formulation design is customer-driven and based on individual needs and specifications. Nordmann will be happy to respond to questions about this on-site.

Visitors to the 2024 DKT in Nuremberg will find Nordmann and its partners at Booth 9-101 in Hall 9 from July 1-4.
