Wire & Plastic Machinery Corp. was an exhibitor at this year's Wire Southeast Asia. The show is regarded as Asia's largest procurement ground for the latest manufacturing equipment and technologies for the wire and cable industry.
It was a pleasant surprise to see that attendance was up from the last staging of Wire Southeast Asia. We had had more visitors to our booth this time and had meaningful discussions with customers that have capital projects in the pipeline. There was considerable interest in our offerings as more customers are giving serious consideration to the option of purchasing high quality second-hand equipment. Not only did we see potential customers from the ASEAN region, there were also quite a few visitors from India and the Middle East. Despite soft economic conditions, we hope to see some orders materialize from this region over the next few months as this part of the world is poised to grow at a faster rate than the developed world economies. Overall, we were pleased with our participation as we made several new contacts and picked up another agent for the region.
We used our booth space to hold sales meetings and to display photo's of inventory highlights. The machines that generated the most interest amongst visitors were:
- SAMP Rod Breakdown Line
- SAMP Multiwire Drawing Lines (10 Wire I 14 Wire)
- Ceeco 2.5m Drum Twister
- Eurodraw 16 Wire Drawing Line for Alloys
- Nextrom 80mm Extrusion Line
