First MACH exhibition involvement by NHE generates clear opportunities
‘One of the best shows we have attended for some considerable time’ is the verdict of process plant specialist NHE on its first ever involvement in the MACH exhibition. The company, which brings Plasticraft, Ardrox Engineering and Lancy Technology together into a single point of contact for customers, presented the full range of its services at the NEC in April and is reporting not only broad interest on the stand, but also a number of sales development opportunities as a direct result.
“Apart from detailing Plasticraft’s process plant capability, the wastewater treatment expertise provided by Lancy Technology and the non-destructive testing track record of Ardrox Engineering, we drew particular attention to two major developments,” explains Will Green, Sales Director at NHE. “The first of these focused on our appointment by German wastewater evaporation system manufacturer, H2O GmbH as its exclusive distributor throughout the UK and Ireland.” He points out that NHE – via Lancy Technology – is now able to supply the full range of H2O units, building on the Vacudest evaporation system which has already featured in a number of tailored and stand-alone installations undertaken by the company.
NHE also announced an exclusive distribution agreement with US-based Witt Lining Systems, leading supplier of flexible drop-in liners for corrosion control in process tanks and secondary containment areas. “The development enables us to underline our commitment to environmental protection by adopting best practice and design to eliminate risk,” comments Will Green.
Early indications suggest significant interest on all fronts as a result of the company’s decision to participate in MACH. Interest in the H2O product range, with particular reference to oil recovery, was noted whilst the organisation also reports discussions in the automotive sector for a number of high technology automatic processing lines.
“Our belief that our role as process plant system designers and manufacturers is closely allied to the markets addressed by the MACH organisers has been proven correct,” adds Jeremy Salisbury, Group Head of Marketing at Norman Hay plc. “This is clearly a premier UK engineering show which not only attracts high profile exhibitors but, more importantly, potential customers in a range of key manufacturing sectors in which we operate, both in the UK and overseas.
“Our focus now, of course, is to work closely with the organisations who expressed an interest in our products and services, and to build on the successful track record that we placed in the spotlight on the stand at MACH 2014.”
