UPM at PPMA 2018

Taking Orders in the First Two Hours of PPMA 2018

This year, we returned to the annual PPMA show – the Packaging Machinery and Manufacturing Show at NEC – and are pleased to report it was the best exhibition we have ever had as a company, in our 45 year history.

Exhibiting at stand A34, we secured orders in the first two hours and spoke with a number of individuals and companies looking to benefit from automation solutions for product handling. We were able to perform demonstrations on our stand and had a range of brochures available to take home.

A message from our sales director

Roy Fowler, sales director, puts the success down to the interactive and engaging methods used during the show. He states, “This is due to the live demonstrations based on unattended lights out production including product cooling/counting, automatic box filling plus metal detection and static removal leading to increased efficiency and profit.”

Looking ahead

One of the larger potential orders from attending the event was a £500,000 system project from a major blue-chip multinational company. This would involve 3D modelling and creating a bespoke turnkey product handling solution.

We have now attended every PPMA Show which originated with Total, and look forward to our attendance in 2019 on stand D22. Further to this we will be exhibiting at Interplas, PDM and Southern Manufacturing.
