For the first time in the fair’s history, the United States will be the Partner Country, a status that provides the more than 390 businesses and organizations in the U.S. delegation an unprecedented opportunity to be prominently featured throughout the event. President Obama will also participate in this year’s event, themed “Integrated Industry-Discover Solutions.”

Altree™ will exhibit its wood-plastic composite sheeting product in the Industrial Supply Pavilion at the show.  We can be found in Hall 6, Stand 45-5.  Please stop by and learn about our products. If you need more information on the show, visit our blog post here.

“The U.S. business community and the Department of Commerce have a clear message for the world: the United States is open for business. We will demonstrate and deliver on that message at the 2016 Hannover Messe,” said U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker. “We are proud to have some of America’s most innovative and forward-thinking green manufacturing, job-creating companies joining the U.S. delegation at this year’s fair.”

Altree™, the company’s signature product is made from recycled wood fiber and recycled plastic.  Altree™ was developed in conjunction with the US Forest Service, Forest Products Laboratory and has been in research and development for over 20 years.  Altree™ was designed as an industrial-grade sheeting product and is being rolled out in the USA to replace aluminum roadway guide signs.  Tony Burger, CEO notes “We are the first company in the world to develop and market an alternative substrate to aluminum roadway guide sign manufacturers.”
