GIFA Report Fochem International

Reading time: min

Fochem International would like to thank all our visitors who came to see us at GIFA Düsseldorf 2015. We owe special thanks to the South African National Pavilion for their organisation and support.

Fochem International, this year exhibiting for the first time as part of the South African National Pavilion, embraced the opportunity to introduce its specialised portfolio. Regarding our products and services, we received excellent feedback from our customers. Visitors were in particular interested in Fochem International’s graphite-based wax plunger beads and release agents. We focus on the development and production of aluminium die casting release agents, forging lubricants, products for aluminium refineries, the electric industry, and other applications. At the core of our highly specialised products is the processing of very fine graphite. We export our products worldwide, especially to Europe, the USA and Japan.

GIFA is the most important international exhibition for the metal casting industry and sets global benchmarks. Fochem International reached its target of exploring new ideas for product improvement and in particular networking with international contacts. For our company, GIFA 2015 was a huge success. We were able to bind existing agents from the European market and interact with new prospective customers especially from the growing Asian markets. Since we intend to expand to those markets, the trade fair was an important event to us in order to connect on an international and professional level.

We are pleased that many South Africans took the long journey to Düsseldorf.

We will definitely come back!
