The FDM trade association for machine and tool wholesaling met today, March, 2nd 2016, in Cologne, for a scheduled executive and advisory board meeting. This event was hosted by Nenok GmbH, a leading supplier of used machinery and tools specializing in steel construction, steel trading and metal construction.
The FDM trade association supports its members in the fields of used machinery and tool trade, with regard to a wide variety of requirements and issues arising from the volatile development of the international market.
The main topic of today's meeting was a review of the successful 2015 financial year and the outlook for the year 2016 and the related plans.
Many news have been shared and many suggestions have been made, especially in the topic area of the internet platforms machinestock.com, usetec. com and the new brand retec-fair.com. These important machine sales platforms are also becoming increasingly important for tool and accessory sales. Nenok welcomes this development and will offer its new and used cooling channel drills, carbide drills and segment saw blades on the platform Machinestock.com in the future as well.
As the online trade - as in all other branches - is steadily gaining in importance for machine and tool traders and, above all, shaping business even more internationally, it is desirable to have a strong corporate presence and to expand the association's activities.
Furthermore, the founding of the new used machine fair ReTEC was presented by the FDM management and discussed intensively.
With the development of many new ideas and the clear will to accept these challenges, the successful meeting came to a satisfactory conclusion after a long day with many stimulating and interesting discussions.
