The mood barometer at the 39th International Hardware Show 2014 in Cologne was positively optimistic. During 9-12 March, exhibitors from 53 countries came from far and near to take their place at the show.
Big Wipes and the other 2782 participants were showing off our wares to a massive crowd of visitors. We were all of the unanimous opinion that the quality of the occasion was very high. This event also confirmed the positioning of the trade fair as the leading international business and innovation hub of the hardware industry.
Tools, Industrial Supply, Fasteners & Fixings, Fittings and Home Improvement
Big Wipes was exhibiting in the segments Tools, Industrial Supply, Fasteners & Fixings, Fittings and Home Improvement. The latter represented an exhibition space spanning 142,000 m2. Around 50,000 trade visitors from 136 countries visited the International Hardware Show and it felt like they all came to our stand. As per usual, we were inundated with visitors, who couldn’t believe their eyes when they witnessed the power of the new 4×4 formula Big Wipes. “Like magic”, was a phrase we heard very often!
The unique benefit of Big Wipes cleaning wipes is their ability to shift all modern construction grime. They get rid of sealants, adhesives, paints, coatings and other filth in an instant. As they are completely portable, they can be kept close to hand to remove this muck before it gets a chance to fully cure.
The preservative-free Big Wipes formula contains 4 powerful cleaning agents and 4 dermatologically tested skin conditioners. The Big Wipes range of cleaning products is thus tough on grime but kind to your hands.
Big Wipes are antibacterial and assessed to the latest EU Regulation 1223/2009 for cosmetic products. Further, dermatologists recorded zero levels of irritation during controlled and rigorous testing.
In addition, Big Wipes supplies the 4×4 Power Spray. The powerful, fast-acting antibacterial cleaning spray helps your hands and tools stay clean no matter what the job.
