Following months of planning we enjoyed a very busy three days at the NEC welcoming customers, both old and new, to our first ever stand at Interplas. While we were a little unsure as to how a raw materials supplier would fit into the mix, we were very pleasantly surprised by the quality and quantity of enquiries that we generated and we are now busy again following up on each of these opportunities.
Broad Range of Enquiries
The range of enquiries that we received was particularly interesting; from basic fillers and pigments to coatings offering water resistance that are ultimately aqua-degradable and coupling agents for improving the performance of environmentally friendly composites. The growth in recycling around the World also brought us new enquiries for processing aids to improve the performance of these polymers and increase their use in replacing virgin plastics. While we don’t necessarily have answers to all of the questions at this time, our business philosophy is to use our diverse industry knowledge to look for answers and to offer our customers support in achieving their goals.
Visitors from UK and Beyond
While the majority of visitors were from the UK, we also received numerous enquiries from overseas manufacturers, as far afield as the Middle East, and we will be using our colleagues in other MegaChem offices to support these customers on a local basis. Having 14 offices in 11 different Countries allows MegaChem to offer global solutions at a local level, which is just one of the reasons customers turn to us for support.
Didn’t Visit our Stand or the Exhibition? – We Can Still Help
Not everybody gets the opportunity to visit exhibitions like Interplas, but that doesn’t mean that you don’t have problems that you would want support with. If you didn’t attend this year’s event, but have specific needs in terms of raw materials support, we would be more than happy to discuss these needs with you and look to offer advice and products to help you out. Our technical sales team is always happy to arrange a visit to discuss both existing problems and your future plans.
If you didn’t attend and you do have a need, please feel free to call us on Tel: + 44 (0) 1291 422747 to speak to one of our expert team.
