We are delighted that so many customers visited us at aquanale. However people were not only interested in our products, but especially wanted to know: “Why actually is the grando team wearing bow ties?” Well of course we wanted to look smart, with this special accessory, and demonstrate that you are special to us. But we also thought that the bow tie, which originated in France and is called a nœud papillon – translation: butterfly – fits very well to our new multi-coloured profile. Hardly any animal has such a magnificent variety of colours as a butterfly. A simple tie is standard – but a bow tie is unusual, just like the grando pool cover, a unique piece with an individual touch. And indeed the same could be said of one or two of the bow tie-wearers. Another thing also prompted us to wear bow ties: our trade fair concept “grando digital” which, with its app, configurator and energy calculator, represents a “modern age”, in which the bow tie is becoming fashionable again. What do bow ties and grando pool covers have in common? They are “proven, traditional products” with a timeless, classic effect. So, now you have discovered the secret of the bow tie – à la Sherlock Holmes, who – what a coincidence – was one of the most famous bow tie-wearers of them all!

21 October 2015. Today we are at the point of time to which Marty Mc Fly travels 1989 in “Back to the Future II” to the future. He expected flying cars, self-drying clothes, hoverboards and remote-control dog walkers. This is not what really exists.
Today is Evaluate-Your-Life Day. grando is using it as an occasion to reflect upon their product range and to think over new developments. What do customers need today? What developments should we expect? Will the colours, materials and styles still go well in the future? How does digitalisation influence our market?
Electric cars are still an uncommon sight on German roads, but some really stand out, like the ones from the sopra dealer. They prove that fun, functionality and aesthetics can go hand in hand with environmental protection and energy efficiency.
Swimming is good for the body and music is good for the soul. We have combined both to create an all-round enjoyable experience for visitors to the grando stand at aquanale (hall 6/D 30).
