PARAT OFF TO A FLYING START:
NEW WEBSITE, NEW PRODUCTS, NEW CUSTOMER CONCEPT
PARAT Group is a worldwide technology leader for plastic premium solutions and runs production sites all over the world in a sustainable manner. As a recognized market leader for premium tool case systems, PARAT has been globally active for more than 70 years as a professional and reliable supplier for specialist dealers from the most common trades. On-going further development and process optimization are an inherent part of PARAT’s corporate philosophy. In keeping with this goal, the new year 2018 starts with a multitude of innovations.

The key product highlight is the latest handle generation by PARAT – it is integrated in almost any PARAT tool case and bag. Its ergonomic shape and anti-slip softtouch surface with handy dimples make the handle design unique on the market. In addition, the practical handle snaps into place at 90° and enables a back-friendly placing and lifting of the tool case. Oil, dirt and sweat simply run off the case surface thanks to its resistant material. Moreover, the handle design is a particular eye-catcher: entirely in the style of the PARAT logo with its red color, the red style line gives every tool case a polished look.

New Handl Generation

New Handl Generation

NEW HANDLE GENERATION PROVIDES A UNIQUE DEGREE OF COMFORT
Products by PARAT have a proven track record for providing highest quality and precision: particular emphasis is placed here on perfection down to the last detail – this makes up the basis for high-quality end products to become faithful companions to their owners. As a market leader for premium tool cases, PARAT now presents a completely new generation of carrying handle – patented, exclusive and unique.
The equipment of a tool case is just as important for the user as comfortable transport in tough working conditions. That is why the new PARAT carrying handle has been designed to bring significant advantages to the user: First of all, the ergonomic shape guarantees easy transport of the case – this securely prevents any fatigue of the hand. Moreover, the handle surface comes with a moisture-resistant softtouch material. This material is extremely durable, sturdy and robust and withstands even oil, dirt and sweat – and makes the tool case a perfect companion for craftspeople to handle even the hardest jobs with ease. In order to keep a good grip on the handle, integrated dimples provide best non-slip quality. In addition, the practical handle lock ensures efficient and, above all, quick working: when placing the case on the floor, the handle securely remains in place in order to guarantee easy and back-friendly lifting of the case in any situation.

PARAT as a new member of the trade association FSK

The Trade Association of foam plastics and polyurethanes e.V. (FSK) is an association of the plastics processing industry representing a total volume of around 9 billion euros on the polyurethane and foam plastics market. The FSK is incorporated into a network of numerous associations, such as the ARGE trade associations from the chemical, plastics and textile industries.

Since the beginning of the year, PARAT has become an offical member of the FSK association:
Successful industries need strong expert organizations as a platform for dialogue and contacts as well as for promoting its members’ interests. The FSK association rates as one of the most important trade associations in its field in Europe and is the largest national association in Germany on account of its fifty years of tradition.
