From Germany, ideas for business

BY Ken Clark

For the first time, the Internationale Eisenwarenmesse in Cologne, Germany, will offer an Industrial Supply section, providing attendees with industrial and safety applications.

The new section will be one of the highlights of the March 4 to 7 event in Cologne, Germany.

Examples of the new section, according to show organizers, are powerful wet and dry vacuum cleaners usable for home and workshop use. Grinding material suppliers will present a new generation of discs made of jute, an affordable natural raw material that combines high performance with ease of use. The new material ensures great durability and an extended lifetime.

More than 2,700 exhibitors from more than 50 countries are planning to show their products, with the tradeshow divided into the product categories tools, industrial supply, fasteners and fixings, fittings and home improvement. Attendees will find the latest product innovations and will be educated about new product trends and launches.

New-generation products will include tool trolleys with optimized drawers and modified wheels and measurement instruments with laser rangefinders for more convenient operation. Other innovations include Allen key holders with a new clamping device that ensures that unused keys cannot fall out. One of the show’s highlights will be a radial tile-cutting machine for large-format tiles with foldaway base frame and integrated wheels, saving storage. A wide range of new generation cutting tools for floor coverings will be on display.

Retailers will also find new ideas for effective “Point of Sales” solutions, ranging form simple displays and modular systems to large shop-in-shop solutions, according to show organizers.

New line of home cleaning products hits Best Buy shelves

BY HBSDEALER Staff

Whirlpool is launching Affresh Cleaners, a new line of advanced home cleaning products now available at Best Buy stores nationwide.

"Keeping the kitchen clean has historically been a big chore, so we designed the new line of Affresh Cleaners to combat everyday spills and residue while making cleaning simple," said Wendeline Ortiz, brand manager of Affresh Cleaners.

The new line includes:

• Affresh kitchen and appliance cleaner: This citrus-scented cleaner safely removes everyday food spills and stuck-on residue from inside microwaves and refrigerators, as well as such small appliances as blenders, toasters and mixers; 

• Affresh stainless steel cleaner: Plum-scented, this cleaner removes fingerprints, smudges and residue left behind from daily use; and 

• Affresh cooktop cleaner, which works to effectively clean glass, ceramic and porcelain cooktops, and removes even the toughest baked-on residue, according to the company.

The complete line of Affresh Cleaners is available nationwide in more than 1,100 Best Buy stores, on BestBuy.com and at select local grocery stores. Visit Affresh.com for more information.

Stat Flash: NPD U.S. Economic Perception Indicator

BY HBSDealer Staff

Consumer research from Port Washington, N.Y.-based NPD Group shows consumers are feeling a little better about the economy, but not as good as they felt last year at this time.

The November 2011 NPD U.S. Economic Perception Indicator, a measure of consumer confidence, increased slightly to an index reading of 37.4, on a scale of 0 — "very concerned" — to 100 — "very confident."

The November reading is up from 35.9 in October. A year ago, the perception indicator index was at 40.5.

The NPD Group’s U.S. Economic Perception Indicator measures consumer beliefs about the current and near-term state of the U.S. economy.
