After several years of absence, SAG exhibited at the 2016 IHRSA conference and exhibition in Orlando, FL in March.  Along with plans in the US and the incorporation of SAG North America, the participation was a consequent decision.  The fitness market is an important target for SAG.  Furthermore, with the attendance of several locker manufacturers the show was an ideal platform to introduce SAG and their products.  “The promising meetings at the show encouraged us with our engagement in this market” is the positive conclusion of Marcel van den Haak, Export Manager for SAG.
