From AL-KO to Schwörer Haus to Ethikbank: These manufacturers are participating in NEW HOUSING 2023
The Tiny House Festival at Messe Karlsruhe is Europe's largest event of its kind - companies and associations know that too.
Around 50 exhibitors will be on site at NEW HOUSING - Europe's largest Tiny House Festival - at Messe Karlsruhe from 30 June to 2 July. They will present their products and services and thus provide interested parties and mini house residents with the best possible insight into the scene.
Among the exhibitors are well-known manufacturers in the sector. One of them is Alois Kober GmbH, better known as AL-KO. Founded in 1931 in Großklötz near Günzburg in Bavaria, the company operates 25 sites worldwide and employs around 1800 people. In addition to gardening tools and components for the automotive sector, AL-KO also manufactures high-quality chassis for Tiny Houses on wheels. NEW HOUSING visitors can find out what these look like, what advantages they offer and what they cost live on site.
Wöhltjen and Schwörer Haus on site
In order to be able to use chassis, however, you first need a mini-house - for example from Tiny House by Wöhltjen. The traditional handicraft business from Lower Saxony plans and builds the tiny houses according to the individual wishes of their occupants. Wöhltjen will also be at NEW HOUSING, as will its competitor Schwörer Haus from the Swabian Alb. The prefabricated house manufacturer builds homes ranging from single-family houses and bungalows to flying spaces. This is the term Schwörer uses to describe tiny living forms of all kinds - whether a Tiny Office, a holiday home or a Tiny House as a main residence.
Just like conventional houses, their smaller counterparts also need functioning building technology. What this might look like is being shown live by the global corporation Siemens at the Karlsruhe trade fair. The Hessian company Viessmann will present how tiny houses can be heated, cooled and ventilated, what systems are available and what is most suitable for which occupants.
Ethikbank at New Housing for the first time
In addition to houses, accessories, heating systems and more, visitors to NEW HOUSING 2023 will also be able for the first time to find out about possible financing for a Tiny House directly at Messe Karlsruhe. For the first time, the Ethikbank will be on site from 30 June to 2 July. According to its own information, it is an ethical-ecological direct bank. Customers' money will not be invested in companies that are active in the fields of armaments and nuclear power or that permit child labour. In addition, companies in which the Ethikbank invests must be actively committed to sustainable business practices.
In addition to well-known manufacturers, the Tiny House Association will also provide information on the topic during the Tiny House Festival. With eleven associations, the association will represent more representatives of the industry at its stand than ever before.
