The international trade show, held every second year, is hosting around 600 exhibitors and has visitors from a host of professions: architects, architectural firms, surveyors, decorators, manufacturers, builders, real state promoters.
"It is a meeting place that gives us a brilliant opportunity to get closer to our customers and to potential customers," says Jean-François Cavalié, who heads HBS Iberia - Hydro's building systems activities in Portugal and Spain.
Hydro's main systems brands - Domal, Technal and Wicona - have individual stands at Veteco, near each other in the same hall. But each is presenting a different message.
Domal is showing new products and applications with an "aluminium at home" theme, while visitors to the Wicona stand can view some of the brand's latest tailor-made solutions along the lines of "no limits." The Technal brand is presenting systems with sustainability at the heart of their design, as well as a software tool dedicated to metal builders.
The largest integrated aluminium company in Europe, Hydro is one of the preferred suppliers of aluminium building systems worldwide. Its international brands – Domal, Technal and Wicona – cover the range of system products, from windows and doors for single-home residential solutions to the erection of façades on major structures such as new airports or high-rise buildings.
