The Accumold marketing team is preparing to attend the COMPAMED International Trade Fair 2016 this month in Dusseldorf Germany, providing the Ankeny, Iowa company the opportunity to share its story of micro-molding expertise.

“This will be our fourth COMPAMED trade fair in Dusseldorf,” said Accumold Vice President of Marketing and Customer Strategy Aaron Johnson. “The European market for medical technology is certainly very robust and state of the art. Its appreciation for Accumold’s unique abilities really seems to come to the fore in Dusseldorf, which makes it an outstanding platform for us to share what we do.”

This year’s dual event being held from November 14-17 will show once again that the products developed by medical technology suppliers can have a huge impact in terms of delivering better care to patients in hospitals and the community. This annual coming together of the world’s leading medical trade fair, MEDICA and COMPAMED, the top international industry platform for medical industry suppliers brings us closer to find the answer to the question, ‘What medical breakthroughs will the future bring?’.

COMPAMED’s offering covers the following main areas: components for medical technology, materials, micro- and nanotechnology, contract electronic manufacturing services, complex manufacturing and equipment partnerships, packaging and services. In combination with the world’s largest medical trade fair, MEDICA 2016, COMPAMED covers the entire value chain in medical technology – from single component to quality control measurement methods to sterilised and packaged final product. This globally unique trade fair-subject area combination is one of its kind and a key factor in determining the success of both events.

“We are ready be part of the Dusseldorf stage, featuring current and new trends as well as products from the sectors of new materials, production technology, nanotechnology and microsystem technology. We know all areas will be presented by highly qualified specialists and leading experts. This is exactly where Accumold wants and needs to be,” Johnson added.
