As one of the country’s leading woodworking machinery and materials suppliers, Ney held its Spring At Home show in April at its impressive, extensive Coventry headquarters.
The show proved a resounding success with visitors coming from across the UK to discover the impressive diversity of machinery and equipment options available: from CNC machines, edgebanding machines sanding and finishing, saws and sizing, foil coating and pressing as well as traditional machines, hand tools and packaging equipment.
In addition of course, Ney is renowned for its breadth of materials and components. Visitors attending remarked how impressive the offer has become in recent times and
Ney has to be considered as a on-stop-shop for the majority of standard products nowadays.
In terms of materials currently available: Ney’s edging and foils offer is rightly recognised as being comprehensive, well specified and typically well stocked. In addition, the current components offer includes: drawer systems, kitchen storage, handles, hinges and lift systems, door systems, bedroom storage and lighting.
So taking the machinery and materials options together, when Ney puts on an event in its substantial 120,000 sq ft premises, its akin to a well-balanced trade show with a good range of the majority of products needs for mainstream manufacturers.
Managing director Shahana Kishver, says: “The attendance on all three days was good and it was great to see our existing customers as well as a healthy number of new customers coming from all corners of the UK and Ireland. As we are so centrally-located in Coventry, Ney today has become the ideal one-stop-shop and we are seeing our client base growing in geographical terms.”
Visitors also commented on how easy Ney is to work with. “We offer our customers a full service and financial support. The high number of visitors proved this. Customers like our hospitality and relaxing atmosphere to discuss productivity improvements with our technical specialists.”
The focus of the Spring At Home event was on seamless edgebanding – a subject which proved very popular with visitors. During the event, there were workshop sessions looking at how to achieve seamless edgebanding featuring Ney’s impressive flagship edgebander from EBM which features EVA, PUR and Airtronic seamless edging.
The quality of the EBM Airtronic edgebander spoke for itself. Ney chairman Gerd Ney, says: “The significant optical quality makes Airtronic by EBM affordable for small- to medium-sized shops.
“The process of edging with Airtronic achieves consistent results that can be compared with those of much more expensive laser aggregates and this has been independently confirmed by the three top producers of fusion edgebanding tape after extensive testing.
“It has an extremely short heat-up time of three minutes, has low energy and air consumption and intelligent operating concept.”
In addition, the entry-level KDP 100 range proved a considerable draw to visitors as it now has the added ability EVA, PUR and Airtronic application.
