ATL Composites heads to METS 2023

The METSTRADE Show in Amsterdam, 15 to 17 November 2023, unites the world’s leisure marine brands and businesses in the world’s largest B2B exhibition of marine equipment, systems and materials.

This year, organisers confirm there will be 1,300 exhibitors from 49 countries, estimated to attract around 17,000 visitors.

ATL Composites, Australia and M.u.H. von der Linden GmbH based in Wesel, Germany will again attend in partnership to showcase the DuFLEX, DuraKore and Featherlight panels range, manufactured by their joint venture company, vdL Composites GmbH.

vdL Composites GmbH offers lightweight construction solutions to many of Europe’s leading boat builders and design houses.

For 11 years ATL Composites and M.u.H. von der Linden have worked together to supply customers across Europe in a range of different industries, including architecture and construction.

Nicholas Cossich and Lorraine Duckworth, Directors at ATL Composites are looking forward to METS 2023, saying “It’s the opportunity to see the innovations and ingenuity from around the world as well as meeting with our partners and customers to see how we can collaborate on their projects.

“Seeing what’s on offer from new and established brands, enjoying the informative presentations are important parts of METS.”

Helge Von Der Linden General Manager of MuH von der Linden GmbH and also partner in vdL Composites GmbH said they have been exhibiting at METS for 28 years.

“Since 1995, we have been exhibiting at METS as M.u.H. von der Linden GmbH, visiting the show to meet friends and foster business relations,” he said.

“Exhibiting products designed for customers in the marine market has resulted in success especially for vdL Composites. Having been to Amsterdam for the show over so many years, we feel very connected not only to the city but to our business friends, many of whom we only meet once a year. It is a great place to meet and discuss innovations and solutions for our customers.”

At METSTRADE 2023, the vdL Composites stand will be located at CMP 12.803.
