Geschäftsführer Hermann Fliess & Co. GmbH
"As early as 1950, Friedrich Fliess, with the help of the DVS and the SLV, brought together electrode manufacturers and the specialist public in a former pigsty in Duisburg. This resulted in the first "SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN" in the Gruga Hall 2 years later. Thus, the fair has been a valuable platform for us to meet national and intentional customers for decades. This personal exchange is still a central part of "SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN" today. As a member of the advisory board, I am pleased to be able to continue to help shape the "SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN"."

Managing Board GTS e.V. c/o Linde AG
"Schweissen & Schneiden has become an important trade fair for coating to bring our technology closer to new markets. The increasing interest in laser cladding forms the ideal interface for us to show the advantages and the whole range of thermal spraying.
In addition, there are current topics for the market, such as a lower CO2 footprint in the supply chain through optimised component design or repair instead of new part production. The high standing of the trade fair among visitors forms the right platform to represent to the trade audience - in addition to joining and cutting - also coating from the service provider to the plant technology."
