First and foremost to all our valued clients and friends, thank you for making GIFA 2015 the best to date.
We launched a new product range and our patented Secondary Reclamation unit at GIFA. In addition to this we showcased a Lauds Compact 3TPH Reclamation Plant 6TPH Pneumatic Conveyor and our fully portable 6TPH Continuous Mixer.
We are pleased to announce all items were sold at GIFA into Europe.
I could not have imagined that we would have had the positive response we received from all that passed our stand. At the end of the show we had no more brochures and three full books of enquiries!
I must thank the DTI and SAIF for facilitating the South African Pavilion, without them we would not have had the opportunity to show case our PROUDLY SOUTH AFRICAN FOUNDRY EQUIPMENT.
Will we attend again…..absolutely!
This year saw a huge amount of interest in the Lauds brand and group of companies. We have signed up some very exciting new agreements and are in the process of final negotiations with a well –known, listed supplier to represent us exclusively outside the borders of South Africa. We have signed an exclusive agreement for the European and Sub Saharan Africa with General Kinematics, who we believe have an exciting product portfolio and will complement our range of products for the future. Our companies share the same vision and with the combined efforts we should take General Kinematics and Lauds Group of Companies into a new league for years to come.
Lauds is being taken very seriously as a major contender in the global market. We have already seen the response from the market. Good, high quality equipment is what they require, machines that deliver what they state in terms of performance and stand the full test of the guarantee period. Lauds qualifies on all levels.
I would like to thank my team CJ Lindeque and Stephen O’Reilly for the efforts in ensuring all enquiries big and small were documented, as well as the Lauds Team both in South Africa and Germany for the support and dedication to take us to the next level.
Look out competitors here we come…
