The wire South America show (Sao Paulo, October 6-8, 2015) has definitely confirmed its status as the most important international trade fair for the wire and cable industry in South America.
SAMP, a company of the Maccaferri Industrial Group and leader in the wire drawing and extrusion technology, was present with some of its latest developments, such as the best-selling Double-Twist Bunching Machine BM 630 and a state-of-the-art Extruder SAMP 120-25.
A number of extrusion heads developed by the long-standing technology partner CJ-TEK was also on display as the perfect complement of SAMP extrusion lines. Also its well-known Brazilian partner Cortinovis do Brasil was present on the booth. Together, SAMP and Cortinovis do Brasil introduced a joined company portfolio that allows them to be the first and only supplier in South America to locally produce the entire manufacturing line for wire and cable, from rod breakdown to the extrusion process.
The first result of this important partnership was the joined development and local manufacturing of a complete drawing line for 24 wires, which was recently installed in the plant of a Brazilian customer. “The show was really a great success”, said Federico Bussola, Sales Director of SAMP. “This was the second time for us to participate and, in comparison to last edition, we noticed an increase in the quality of meetings and discussions. We were pleasantly surprised by the interest of customers, which resulted in the sales of both of the machines that were on display and this, given the current market situation, is even more remarkable.”
Giovanni Cinti, Sales Area Manager for South America, added: “Thanks to the exhibition, we got in contact with new potential customers not only from Brazil, but also from other South American countries like Argentina, Venezuela, Peru etc. Therefore we can affirm without a doubt that the wire South America surely met and even exceeded all of our expectations.” SAMP would like take this opportunity to thank all customers, partners and suppliers that visited the stand and hope to see them again at the next wire South America in 2017!
