Looking back at the Van Beek/Celsius “trade fair season”

The last two months have been a busy time for the van Beek team. We were represented at no less than four trade fairs, spread over very different locations and focussed on very different target groups. Let’s look back at them...

It all started on 20 to 22 September with our Dino Bulk Truck Loader at the Transport & Logistics fair in Antwerp. Our Dino specialists Roel Kneepkens and Peter Verhoeven welcomed a large number of interested visitors, making the fair very successful for us and something to repeat.

From 27 to 29 September it was the turn of our classic screw conveyors and our Celsius screw heat exchangers to go to the IPB fair in Shanghai, China. We were represented here by our Chinese agent Compass Bulk Handling. China is also a very rapidly growing market for us and in Compass we have an excellent partner for capturing this market, which is very difficult to get into.

On 5 and 6 October we were busy again, a bit more locally this time, in Rotterdam at the SOLIDS 2011 fair. Just as in China we were also represented at this fair with both Celsius and Van Beek. Time and time again the SOLIDS fair proves to be a wonderful opportunity to exchange information with clients and colleagues. Nice and busy and particularly well organised.

The last trade fair and at the same time the high point of our “trade fair season” was the Powtech fair in Nuremberg, Germany, from 11 to 13 October. With our biggest stand ever (72m²) this year there was sufficient room to show our visitors a "real" screw heat exchanger. The machine shown was a screw heat exchanger type CTV800 made of SS316 for heating water containing fish waste (with fish oil and bones varying between 40 and 50mm) that will be supplied to the Norwegian company Biomega AS. Click here for more information on the machine exhibited and a video of our stand.

Powtech is a fair with an international flavour and a wonderful opportunity for us to bring together our worldwide network of agents. During the fair contracts were signed with KEMUTEC, now responsible as Celsius reseller for the whole of North America.
