Glasstec was the opportunity to re-engage with customers in person after the pandemic, but especially to re-establish personal relationships and reconnect with the people who are essential parts of every company.
The meetings and discussions generated during the event were interesting. Considering the current scenario, the attendance was very good and, certainly, of a high standard: visitors were really interested in investing, with clear ideas about the products to focus on and, for some of them, also willing to place their order at the show.
“We registered a high attendance especially in the central days of the event”, reported Federico Bassi, Sales Director at Bavelloni Spa. “As usual, there was a significant participation from Central Europe and the Mediterranean basin, even though there were also visitors from overseas; Asian operators and visitors were almost absent. Besides many handshakes and conviviality – which we really needed – some deals were also signed at the show.
“We felt a positive mood at our booth, although the pandemic is not yet completely over and there are some economic and political uncertainties in the global scenario. Our customers’ confidence in Bavelloni’s products and in our organization was noticeable. There was also strong commitment and involvement from our partners and distributors.”
Visitors were able to attend live demonstrations of the machines on display and take advantage of the combined presence of Bavelloni and Techni Waterjet specialists, all together on the same stand for the first time.
Bavelloni straight-line edgers and cutting tables were the hot topic of several Bavelloni negotiations. Techni’s waterjet system was also much appreciated.
“Thanks to the interesting group synergies and the complementarity of our respective portfolios, we are able to propose targeted solutions to the market for each specific requirement,” concluded Federico Bassi.
Stanislaw Jakubiec, General Manager EMEA at Techni Waterjet, also expressed his satisfaction, “Techni’s waterjet solutions are suitable for cutting any material, including glass. We are confident that our attendance at Glasstec together with Bavelloni will certainly drive the development of our business in the glass segment as well.”
