The Exhibition Upakovka/ Upakitalia in Moscow
The dramatic event of the new year for the Company hascsurely appeared the participation in the first-string International exhibition "Upakovka//UpakItalia 2016" arranged in Expocentre within the period of January, 26-29, 2016.
Despite the ongoing crisis & falling economy, globally & on a national basis, the exhibition proved to be highly productive & fruitful.
As a whole the exposition turned to be a real hit featuring stability & abundance of exhibits among which the "Anton Ohlert" booth traditionally attracted attention due to its dimensions & the number of the world-level producers represented at the stand. It should be noted that practically all days were eventful; visitors demonstrated their keen interest not only in confectionery plants but also in show cases displaying products.
Without any doubt, confectionery products were in the limelight. The scene of lively discussions between clients & representatives of manufacturers could be observed practically permanently.
Specific projects were discussed with a number of customers; implementation of these projects
is scheduled for the current year.
Producers of nonfood products (pharmaceutics, beauty care products, household chemistry) also could not overlook our stand. The geography of production facilities location - Moscow, Vladimir, Kazan, Krasnodar.
Interest was taken in the filling equipment, both for filling bottles/cans and doypack, tanks & vessels.
The issue of individual & collation cardboard packing remains a pressing question.
One must admit that under present conditions most companies monitor the market in order to survey the level of investments required for updating or expansion. Apparently, quite many companies mark time with respect to specific steps related to purchasing while simultaneously analyzing & studying the consumer market & estimation of the economic situation in the country as a whole. Irrespective of the late trends in partial shifting priorities of selecting suppliers from South-Eastern Asia countries the equipment of the "Anton Ohlert" partners is invariably highly valued by the manufacturers of quality products.
In spite of any business depression the stand of Sollich-Chocotech, WDS, Caotech, Theegarten-Pactec companies was again presented vividly due to displayed patterns of commercial plants. The visitors could not pass up the stand of WDS Company reputed for its developments in the area of chocolate product molding. The number of followers of the up-to-date high-speed packing from Theegarten-Pactec is ever increasing.
