The time has finally come: our traditional DESMA House Fair will take place once again on 26 and 27 September and we look forward to welcoming you all to Achim then.

Up until 2018, the DESMA House Fair provided a regular opportunity for the international footwear industry to get together in Achim. Every two years, more than 50 exhibitors and 780 visitors from six continents regularly came here to obtain information about innovations and new technologies. We are now about to continue that tradition. In keeping with the House Fair slogan “Technology matters” you will be able to find out more about the latest developments in direct soling, new automation tools and customisation solutions.

Customisation and flexibility are key factors in the footwear industry. We have responded to these demands with new processes, machine configurations, designs and materials. Multi Section Injection (MSI), i.e. injecting material into different sections of the sole, allows us to create different features within one sole. The Centre Wedge and DESwing processes allow even more design options and different properties in multi-coloured soles as well as a combination of different materials.

Resource-saving production, reducing costs, raising quality – thanks to robot and automation solutions as well as networked production units, we can satisfy these requests from our customer. 1500 solutions installed worldwide are irrefutable proof.

Would you like to hear at first hand how your design ideas and functional demands can be translated into actual shoes?  Would you like to see how we apply state-of-the-art processes to monitor comfort, quality, cost effectiveness and design? Then come to the DESMA CSC showroom in Achim.

Direct soling technology backed by appropriate automation solutions means that shoes can be produced precisely in constant processes, thus saving resources and the environment: without any intermediate products or adhesives, with little waste and low energy consumption. This yields both economic and ecological advantages.

At our House Fair, we will present some of our “visions of the future”, such as innovations in the production of uppers. Why not come and see for yourself?

The “Factory of the Future”, which was designed in accordance with state-of-the-art LEAN production methods, went into operation on our company premises in mid- 2020. We will gladly show you around.

Make the most of our DESMA House Fair as a networking platform. Meet old friends and new partners from all over the world and enjoy a constructive dialogue with others from the footwear sector. If you have not already done so, join the DESMA House Fair community on LinkedIn where you can communicate with other professionals and experts from the footwear industry.

We are really looking forward to seeing you again. Welcome to the DESMA House Fair 2022 in September.
