DKT 2015 shows rubber industry leading the way

As the DKT show (the International Rubber Conference and Trade Exhibition) draws to a close, a leading compounding specialist has hailed it as an example of everything that is good in the industry.

Paul Hallas, Operations Director of SPC said: “The European rubber industry is setting a good example of how, even in these times of global economic uncertainty, it is putting Europe at the heart of a global market.”

“The industry is continuing to innovate and invest in the future. Nowhere was that more evident than at the DKT 2015 exhibition, which was filled with examples of innovation and was a great showcase of a buoyant industry.”

DKT (Deutsche Kautschuk Tagung – the International Rubber Conference and Trade Exhibition) takes place every three years at Nuremberg in Germany. The four-day show is an important date in the rubber and polymer sector calendar.

SPC was one of more than 270 exhibitors at the 2015 show, which attracted record numbers of visitors. On his return from the exhibition Paul Hallas said: “The Trade Association of the German Rubber Industry and the German Rubber Society must be congratulated for their hard work and for hosting such an excellent event.”

“SPC enjoyed great success at DKT and our attendees enjoyed meeting both new and old acquaintances”, he added.

SPC appearing at DKT 2015

Taking its place among the leaders of the rubber industry, SPC UK is exhibiting at DKT 2015 at Stand 237 (Hall 12).

DKT (Deutsche Kautschuk Tagung – the International Rubber Conference and Trade Exhibition) takes place every three years at Nuremberg in Germany. The four-day show is an important date in the rubber and polymer sector calendar.

This year SPC joins more than 270 exhibitors at the show. Their state-of-the-art stand is as much a destination as an exhibit. It has two floors and features an English-style pub, complete with draft beers, on the ground floor. The upper level has breakout spaces for meetings.

Paul Hallas, SPC Operations Director, said: “DKT is an exciting event and I am proud to be representing SPC at the exhibition. In addition to providing opportunities for networking and enhancing trade, the DKT provides a showcase for new technology and opportunities for learning through a programme of seminars.”

“DKT gives us with the opportunity to demonstrate our expertise in high quality technical compounding.”

“Our manufacturing capability in both the UK and Spain is underscored by our technical expertise and bespoke-approach to chemical engineering. We build relationships with our customers, working with them to create the perfect compound for their needs.”

“I am looking forward to sharing this message further at DKT.”

SPC Unveils New Logo

Specialist rubber compounder, SPC, has announced the launch of a new logo, which they say is part of an ongoing evolution of the company’s brand.

Operations Director, Paul Hallas, said: “The change in our image represents the growth that we’re currently enjoying in the business. We are a forward moving business and use cutting-edge technology to help us produce the highest quality compounds. The development in our brand is a reflection of our forward momentum.”

“We have expanded from a UK company to an international one, with a strong presence in Spain and further global opportunities. It made sense, therefore, to drop the ‘UK’ from the logo.”

“In addition to the changes, we have also retained much of our established brand essence. For example, the logo image is a development of our former grey and blue band, and represents the heart of what we do: manufacturing high quality rubber strips. We have also held on to our brand colours. The message behind this is that, at our core, we are the same trusted company; but that we are also constantly evolving, improving and looking to the future.”

After sharing the brand development with staff in the UK and Spain, and applying it to the company newsletter, Paul announced: “Our fresh and distinctive brand will be rolled out over the coming months, applied firstly to our external-facing communications before becoming embedded in all aspects of our business.”
