“We always come back”
Ovako exhibits at Elmia Subcontractor every year. This year the company is launching a new steel at the fair, WR–Steel® – and will give two seminars about the new product. “This is a very important place for us, an excellent way to exhibit our products,” says Anne Eriksson, marketing assistant at Ovako Sweden.
Every year the steel company Ovako plans its participation in northern Europe’s leading subcontracting fair – Elmia Subcontractor. Most of Ovako’s customers attend the fair and many of the company’s future business deals start here, as Eriksson explains:
“We come here to meet our existing customers, who are otherwise spread out throughout Sweden. We tend to have a number of business meetings scheduled, which we hope – based on previous experience – will result in new leads.”
A packed innovation show
“The rumour about InnoDex seems to have spread among Swedish designers – many of them have come here especially for this,” comments a happy Dr Peters.
All the products in Peters’ exhibition are international and many of them are being shown for the first time here at the fair.
“I’ve brought together innovations developed in such countries as the US, Germany, Belgium and France,” he says. “I want to give Swedish designers and product developers an opportunity to see innovations that have never been shown in Sweden before. And they seem to think it’s all very interesting.”
Lasertech ventures into 3D printing
3D printing is one of the hottest themes of this year’s Elmia Subcontractor. One of the companies moving into this market is Lasertech.
“People are extremely interested – there hasn’t been a quiet moment at our stand,” says Karolina Johansson, production engineer.
Lasertech moved strongly into additive manufacturing in 2014. The company has invested in two 3D printers plus equipment to handle both metallic materials and plastic. Lasertech has also bought a new laser robot cell. Together the investments total some two million euro.
