JMDA Return From Another Successful K&J Nursery Show
JMDA Design recently attended this year’s Kind and Jugend show where besides talking car seat styling trends and car seat safety, met with a number of interested parties looking to use the company’s flair for design in the development of child Restraint Systems (C.R.S) and nursery products.
With ever increasing demands to provide babies and children the best possible start in life, new innovative products and technologies are critical. Style, price and health and safety are key triggers within the consumer market. From research and planning, industrial design, mechanical engineering, prototyping, production and compliance support, JMDA are an award-winning design company with a proven record of delivering projects right the way from concept to manufacture. Attending the show this year were JMDA’s EU and US Child Restraint Specialists, and experts in Vehicle Compatibility who discussed the challenges of R129 for CRS manufacturers as well as the changes to supply and profit as a result of recent changes in Chinese manufacturing. JMDA’s experts in Virtual Prototyping were also on hand to talk about the company’s global design capabilities and the use of dynamic simulations during project design phases in the hopes of securing new business.
Nicolas Pasquier, Senior CRS Designer at JMDA Design explains ‘The K&J show is a favourite for us here at JMDA. It is the leading show for those of us in the nursery industry and provides a great opportunity to network with experts within the industry as well as potential customers, suppliers and retailers.’ He adds, ‘We had some very interesting discussions with a number of different parties over the course of the show and look forward to nurturing these relationships and using our 25-year’s knowledge and experience in car seat and nursery product design to support those wishing to bring their innovative ideas and designs to market.’
The annual K&J fair which ran from 14th – 17th September in Cologne is the leading international trade fair for baby and children’s products drawing in an impressive 22,000 trade visitors from around the world. Derrick and his team look forward to having more in-depth conversations with those people they connected with at the show and will be in touch over the course of the next few weeks.
