HARO – Exploiting home advantage at BAU 2019

Extremely constructive talks with top decision-makers, heavy visitor traffic and consistently positive customer reactions to showcased innovations were some of the key impressions from HARO’s strong presence at BAU 2019  

Rosenheim – Welcome to HARO, Germany’s market leader for parquet flooring! This is how Germany's leading floor covering brand welcomed visitors to the BAU 2019 trade fair in Munich.

There are compelling reasons why customers around the world are opting for European laminate – it is sustainably produced, boasts superb technical benefits and offers remarkable versatility in terms of decor. As a result of innovative product developments, these ever-popular laminate floorboards are now conquering moisture-prone rooms such as kitchens and bathrooms. High-tech laminate from Europe continues to represent the ultimate benchmark in the flooring segment, and not only in technological terms.

The European network of the EPLF – the Association of European Producers of Laminate Flooring – is made up of 18 laminate flooring producers, 20 supplier companies and 10 supporting members. This is the world’s largest regional association for the laminate industry and it celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2019. In light of growing competition in the traditional markets, EPLF players are showing confidence and are focusing on their special strengths.

Laminate flooring market experiences downturn in 2018: Total sales 455 million m² – sales up in Latin America and Asia

In 2018, manufacturing members of the EPLF achieved worldwide sales of European-produced laminate flooring totalling 455 million m² (2017: 477 million m², which corresponds to -4.6%). This indicates that even with a downward trend in some regions, the global laminate market remains at a high level. In Western Europe, the “home market” of the EPLF, sales declined further in 2018, whilst Latin America and Asia once again recorded the biggest increases. North America saw a reduction in sales, whereas Eastern Europe remained stable.

Wood – Polymer – Mixed

The MMFA renames MMF product categories

The MMFA has assigned new names to product groups relating to floating multilayer modular flooring (MMF). In doing so, it has made a clear commitment to bringing together all the various terms within the sector under the generic term “MMF”. The same system of classification will be retained, with multilayer flooring still grouped according to its type of construction, but as of November 2018 the Association is working with the new product categories “Wood”, “Polymer” (which is divided into “LVT” and “Rigid”) and “Mixed”.

MMFA focuses on quality criteria for modular multilayer flooring

With modular multilayer flooring (MMF) currently booming and new types of product construction being launched all the time, the international flooring landscape has seen a significant change within a short space of time. Whilst sales figures are climbing, the wealth of products makes the market increasingly complex, necessitating more technical expertise when it comes to marketing. In its role as a European association, the MMFA wants to actively shape future developments and so is focusing on its own research projects and involvement with ongoing standardisation work.

Unique by Nature

A secluded monastery, where timeless traditions are kept alive. The buildings lovingly looked after by their inhabitants, who know every crack in the walls, every knot in the wooden flooring. Their feet have left traces of wear on the floors, in the rooms and hallways, telling a story of ancient routines.

Janser

Our aim was to offer a powerful grinding machine to be used for the preparation of subfloors which is also lightweight and easy to transport. Many of our customers are regularly working in multi storey buildings with no lift. Often installers are working on their own on building sites and have no opportunity to transport heavy machinery to the top floors.
