“I am extremely pleased with how the event is going. The feedback we are receiving from various exhibitors, speakers and visitors about the event has been really positive. The level of interest and sales activity has been impressive. We have not only seen local new equipment sales but also export sales. We have also heard of healthy sales activity in used equipment as well”, commented IPEX Event Director, Rob Fisher.
Friedheim International has secured the first UK sale of its MBO K80 combination folder which was launched on the opening day of the show, as well as an MBO B26 and many other pieces of equipment.
Additionally, Jo Watkiss, Communications Director at Watkiss said, “We are very pleased with the high level of interest and attention which has been shown in all of our products. In particular, there has been strong sales activity on our stand for both Watkiss PowerSquare booklet makers.”
Living up to the IPEX international reputation, export sales have also been a highlight of the show. Fastbind has been taking orders for book-binding equipment that will be on its way to Guyana and Nigeria.
As well as interest shown by visitors in new equipment, there has also been positive sales activity in used equipment, according to Midland Machinery Supplies. “I’m really pleased that I made the right decision to invest in participating as an exhibitor at IPEX this year. The volume of visitors and business has been great. We’ve sold several machines already”, commented Managing Director, James Gunn.
