|IPEX Impressions - Centre Stage with Friedheim
Friedheim international has declared IPEX 2017 a tremendous success. The first day saw the show launched MBO K80 being sold to Anglo Print in Ireland - who only came for a coffee with Mitch Ball, sales specialist and made a snap purchase - as well as Harcourt Print signing a deal for an MBO B26 buckle folder. Also we saw the Komfi Sagitta go to Swiss printer Spot-Tech Median and the Zechini Roby Junior with VAS going to PrintCraft with a Mephesoto turning up later from the factory as well as a Baumann pile turner to MPS Belfast. We also saw signings from Inprint for the amiga 52 with OTF for the foiling application and another from stock go to Words & Graphics in Leicester. These machines are all going directly to the customers factories from the show.
On the whole, Friedheim’s sales specialists and managers were rushed off their feet and it looks like the next few weeks of customer follow ups are going to be hectic. The machine demonstrators were kept busy running the workflow throughout the days. IPEX 2017 was a show of deals, with quotes flying between head office and the stand. Mark Bristow, Manager Director says “We’ve been very pleased with the level of interest in all the equipment throughout the show. Although 2017 is a smaller show, IPEX has proved once again that it has the ability to attract the crowds and the right decision-making customers that makes attendance so attractive.”
