There wasn't hardly any visitor or exhibitor who wasn't impressed by this year's BAUMA exhibition in Munich. This goes for TT as well. The positive prevailing mood and the booming market resulted in a relaxed atmosphere which lead to increased buying interest and a lot of purchase orders. Especially noteworthy is the increasing investment in Germany. The export business - which already went very well in 2006 - keeps on booming.
At times the run of visitors was hardly manageable, keeping the 50 man stand crew busy all day. The consumption of 2000 litres of beer during seven exhibition days doesn't say anything about the event's success but is exemplary for the exceptionally high visitor frequency at the TT stand, which - with a total space of 1500 sqm was the largest stand TT ever had.
Lively interest was produced by the new GRD boring system for geothermal energy extraction, which helps reducing the drilling costs due to its innovative and compact construction. The steerable boring systems, especially the new GRUNDODRILL "N” series with models 15N and 25N, the sophisticated GRUNDOBURST technology and the classic GRUNDOMAT soil displacement hammers proved to be very popular.
One of the visitors put it that way: The striking TT machine design represents competence, power and reliability - factors which are essential for successful practical applications.
