Shaping the Future

Shaping the Future is the motto of voestalpine on 22 through 28 November 2014 at the bauma in Shanghai.

On a floor space of more than 300,000 square meters, roughly 2,700 exhibitors from 38 countries will be presenting their expertise in the fields of construction, building materials, building machinery and equipment.

The bauma trade fair is the largest international exhibition in these fields and takes place every two years in Shanghai. Focus is on the Southeast-Asian region.

Over the past few years, the bauma exhibition in China has become a leading event in the Asian market and offers participants the opportunity to established themselves in the region. The bauma in Munich in 2013 was a great success for voestalpine, which was the main reason that the decision was made to take part for the first time in Shanghai.

The voestalpine Steel Division will be presenting innovative products and intelligent system solutions at the bauma and will focus on the fields of high-strength, ultra-high-strength and wear-resistant steels,

including the product brands alform®, the alform® welding system and durostat®.
