Acme United Launches New Cuda Products for European Market
Acme United’s (US: ACU – $22.50) European team exhibited at the European Fishing Tackle Trade Exhibition (EFTTEX) in Brussel, Belgium. The 38th edition of the show was hosted at Brussels Expo and welcomed 182 exhibiting companies and well over 1,600 visitors from 71 different countries.
EFTTEX is the key event in the European fishing and tackle industry. However it was encouraging to see an increasing number of U.S. and Asian manufacturers at this year’s gathering who recognized that there is business to be gained in Europe. So this was an ideal venue for Acme to showcase its Cuda fishing products, as well as its DMT sharpening tools.
Acme’s European team introduced no less than 10 new Cuda products at the international audience. These were very well received by existing and new customers. They will become available in the second half of 2019.
Georg Bettin, Acme United’s General Manager for Europe said, “EFTTEX provides a useful window to showcase our unique tools and forthcoming products on a B2B level, giving us an ideal springboard for the B2C launches. During the show we received leads from companies from different regions, which seemed like very good prospects! We are expecting that very soon we will be able to close deals with some of them.”
The people who stopped by at the booth especially liked the exceptional design of the Cuda tools. The knives feature Titanium Bonded German 4116 full-tang stainless steel, which is known for its corrosion resistance and edge retention. They have an integrated scale grip pattern for extra grip. All Cuda tools also feature a full-tang window proving the knife blade goes all the way through the handle.
Moreover, the tools are manufactured with Acme’s patented Titanium Bonded technology making them three times harder than untreated options, and they’re equipped with Aluminum Alloy and Tungsten Carbide, guaranteeing the ultimate in performance.
Visitors and exhibitors once again met and created business opportunities during the three days that EFTTEX lasted, while they also discovered new trends and innovative products. For Acme United this is also a worthwhile event, as it serves as a rendezvous point for many of its Cuda customers.
The distribution of Cuda continues to expand. The tools are available at several large fishing chains in Germany, Spain, the UK, the Netherlands and the Scandinavian countries. Moreover, online sales at Amazon are doing very well and growing significantly. Smallcaps recommendation: BUY.
