"The Show interplastica 2019 was quite satisfying. We had quite a number of serious visitors from Russia and Central Asia. I believe we have made a remarkable first impression in the market thanks to our local partners from Hurmak Russia. Most of our visitors were very impressed to see a relatively new player on their market and were excited to find a middle-segment brand on the market boasting good value for money. Russia has been the leading market for Turkish plastics machinery exports for many years. However, we have been holding back till now to overcome the political instabilities that occurred in 2012. We now think the time is right to strengthen our business ties with our Russian friends and we plan to continue our participation at interplastica in order to show our determination to gain a foothold on the Russian market." - said Burç Angan, Vice Chairman, Hürmak Plastics Machinery.
"Every year we see increasing interest in the exhibition not only from Russian, but also from foreign exhibitors and visitors. It is very important for Polyplastic, because, on the one hand, it allows us to show our products to potential customers, and on the other, to see new promising areas of industrial development, to assess what our competitors have achieved over the past year and to always stay ‘on trend’, to be one step ahead. Participation at the “interplastica” trade fair has already become a good annual tradition for Polyplastic. Of course, we plan to continue this tradition and take part in the exhibition in 2020, as well as in its business program." - said Pavel Kruglov, CEO of Polyplastic Trade House.
"We are very satisfied. The trade fair shows rising dynamism - both in terms of quality and visitor footfall. We posted a 5% – 7% increase in visitor attendance at our stand. The trade audience came predominantly from Central Russia, but also from Belarus and Kazakhstan. Demand was especially high for packaging technology and medical device technology but also white goods. To us this market is very important because Russians like to buy high-quality European equipment despite strong competition from Asia. Furthermore, the trend towards manufacturing more plastic parts domestically favours investment in machinery - despite difficult circumstances." - added Georg Tinschert, General Manager, Wittmann Battenfeld GmbH
