A+A 2021: The importance of being there. And Centrocot will be!

Security and Protection

All the highlights of the leading trade fair for safety, security and health at work.

The pandemic has markedly accelerated the process of change in the working world. A fundamental change that enabled amongst other things the implementation of digital solutions overnight. At the same time, sustainability is more than ever the focus of society and industry. This opens up new areas of activity and raises new questions for the entire industry. How do we want to shape tomorrows’ world, how do we want to live, work and operate in this world while treating our fellow human beings and the available resources ecologically and responsibly? Comprehensive insights as well as solutions and products for the future of work come care of this year’s A+A. Registering more than 1,000 exhibitors (in Halls 1 to 10 approximately 50,000m²) the leading international trade fair for safety, security and health at work will open its doors at the Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre from 26 to 29 October.

Centrocot with its Team of experts will also be present at this edition of A+A and will be waiting for you to illustrate its activities, in particular the new “Leather and Footwear” laboratory that offers the possibility, with cutting-edge instrumentation, to provide important information on the materials used and the consequent suitability that starts from the design to the formation of the prototype of the footwear up to the placing on the market in compliance with the quality standards and performance requirements according to the specific destination of use to guarantee the safety of the finished product.


This is yet another demonstration that Centrocot has always been close to the textile and clothing industry, and today it is also a valid support for the world of footwear.
