Ni hao from Beijing! On the first day of ISH China 2014, select exhibitors, members of the press and other VIPs were welcomed by show partners, including Andreas Lücke, CEO, Federal Industrial Association of Germany House, Energy and Environmental Technology. Lücke’s group also is associated with the huge ISH Frankfurt trade fair in Germany.
While many American and European companies are ISH China exhibitors, very few speak English. But then these products aren’t being marketed to the States. Some of the companies I saw on the first day include Grundfos, REHAU, Calorique, Watts Water Technologies, Caleffi, Bosch Thermotechnology, A. O. Smith, Weil-McLain and Honeywell, as well as Korea-based Navien and Italy-based Lamborghini.
