Ampacet recently exhibited at the 25th edition of Fakuma that took place from the 13th-17th October, 2015 in Friedrichshafen, Germany. This international trade fair for plastics processing has become a prominent meeting place for the industry and Ampacet has participated during the past 3 years.
Besides the K-Show, this is the 2nd biggest plastic exhibition in the German speaking area. The show is growing every year and in 2015 there were 1.800 exhibitors from 36 different countries and a total of 85.000 square meters of exhibition space. The number of visitors increased to more than 46.000 and 30 % of the visitors came from abroad from over 120 different countries.
The people present at the exhibition were the German speaking sales team (Peter, Christian, Andreas and Georg) and the sales team was assisted by Caroline and Helene from Marketing. The Technical service was represented by Christophe Raucourt and also our Marketing Director, Philippe Rey, was present for 2 days during the show.
The majority of the visitors were existing customers. Despite of this we still made some new contacts to companies where until now we are not selling. Considering the number of customer contacts and the possible projects resulting from our discussions, this show was an overall success.
On the stand we presented the new “SHRINKLESS” product range. This new product is a highly effective additive that helps minimize shrinkage and & warpage issues that occur during the process of injection molding or extrusion blow molding and during the show we had several interested customers.
