The Southam based Engineering Technology Group reports a very positive response to its attendance at the MACH 2016 exhibition where it had two stands featuring machine tool and automation technology and a stand dedicated to workholding and fixturing.
“The nature of these shows necessitates considerable investment so obviously exhibitor’s are looking for a pay back,” observes Group Managing Director Martin Doyle.
“While they grab a few headlines, the reality of selling machines off the stand is outweighed by the longer term benefits where new leads and contacts from the show will develop into projects and sales down the line.
“Across Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday – by far the busiest days – our sales and demonstration teams were very busy and the quality of lead, in terms of seniority and decision makers, has been excellent,” he adds.
ETG had eleven fully operational machines on its stand in Hall 5 including the latest releases from Chiron, Stama, Nakamura-Tome, Hardinge and Quaser. They also debuted their newest principle Halter Automation while on their workholding stand the sales and engineering teams from ETG Workholding and Hyfore reported an excellent show.
“The MTA are to be congratulated on organising a tremendous event,” adds Martin Doyle. “Like others we will await details of the proposed move to new halls for 2018 but in the meantime we reflect on a very positive MACH 2016.”
