The trade fair duo that convinces
In combination with HOLZ-HANDWERK: in addition to all the relevant trends and innovations in window, door and facade construction, participants at FENSTERBAU FRONTALE also discover the latest trends in woodworking and wood processing. The two trade fairs have been taking place together in Nuremberg for more than 30 years. HOLZ-HANDWERK, as a meeting place for the woodworking sector and an important platform for the industry, companies, people and products, thus ideally complements the FENSTERBAU FRONTALE range.
The FENSTERBAU FRONTALE success story
FENSTERBAU FRONTALE originates from the post-war years, when glaziers and window makers could barely afford to buy material, machines and tools or they were difficult to obtain. The idea of a market for used machines and tools was born and the first Machine, Tool and Raw Material Show was organized as part of the association conference of the “Fachverband des Glaserhandwerks und verwandter Berufe des Landes Württemberg/Baden” (Württemberg/Baden Association of Glaziers and Related Trades) in 1949 by Friedrich Schlick, head of the Karlsruhe office.
The exhibition halls in Karlsruhe were soon too small for the rapidly growing numbers of visitors and exhibitors and in 1988 the decision was made to move to Nuremberg as the new location for the exhibition. The trade fair has been called FENSTERBAU FRONTALE since 2000 and today it is one of the most important and successful exhibitions of its kind.
