Introducing the Zentralverband Hartwarenhandel e.V at the INTERNATIONAL HARDWARE FAIR

The Zentralverband Hartwarenhandel e.V. (ZHH), the Central Association of the Hardware Trade, (ZHH) is a long-standing cooperation partner of the INTERNATIONAL HARDWARE FAIR COLOGNE. Find out what you need to know about the association here.

For nearly 120 years the ZHH, based in Dusseldorf, has been representing the interests of the medium-size hard commodity specialized trade, which consists of specialized retail trade and production-related trade. Associations and working groups, such as the “Arbeitskreis Werkzeuge (AKW)” or the “Fachverband des Deutschen Eisenwaren- und Hausratshandels (FDE)”, represent the different assortments. These include metal goods, tools, fittings, safety technology, screws, fastening technology, factory equipment, industrial supplies, garden and forestry equipment, environmental and municipal technology, household goods, glass, porcelain/ceramics, DIY supplies, cutlery, fitted kitchens, small household and electrical appliances, sanitary articles and occupational safety. These assortments are subsumed under the term hardware.

Today, the ZHH has four subsidiaries: The magazine Eisenwarenzeitung, which was founded in 1948, the ZHH Dienstleistung GmbH and the ZHH Bildungswerk, which was added in 1983. In 1995, the AGM-Zert GmbH, which carries out certifications for the industry, followed. In order to guarantee future-oriented training and further education, the former vocational school in Wuppertal was transformed into the Akademie Bauen & Wohnen was established in 1999.

Since 2010, the Tools Working Group atZHH has been organising the “Trainees’ Day”, inviting all trainees from the specialist tools trade as well as from the production-related trade (PVH) to the INTERNATIONAL HARDWARE FAIR in Cologne. Koelnmesse has supported the project, which is now well established, from the outset by providing free admission for trainees, among other things. Trainees thus have the opportunity to experience the diversity of the industry up close and enhance their own consulting skills. In addition, they can get to know their partners in the tool, fastening and industrial industry and start building their networks

More information about the ZHH can be found on the association’s website.

We are looking forward to further cooperation with the ZHH and hope to see you at the next INTERNATIONAL HARDWARE FAIR in COLOGNE from 1 to 4 March 2020.
