MachinePoint returned once more to Brau Beviale in Nuremeberg, 13th to 15th of November 2018, to promote the best used machines currently for sale in the market and also its engineering services.
At the event, 3 Area Managers of MachinePoint and the Directors of MachinePoint Beverage Divison and MachinePoint Engineering attended customers non-stop over 3 busy days.
Martin Smith, Director of MachinePoint Beverages commented, “Brau Beviale is an important trade fair for our team. Its location in Germany which is one of our main markets for searching for good used equipment for sale makes it perfect. At this edition, we have noticed a considerable increase in customers coming from Eastern European countries and Russia.
The last couple of years has seen fantastic new machinery sales and increased production orders across the beverages industry and this has meant a scarcity of used machinery in the market. The used equipment for sale has generally been expensive and unattractive. We feel that this situation is slowly changing and are expecting more used equipment to enter the market in the coming months. Also with the economy cooling some companies are facing overcapacity. We held conversations at Brau Beviale with various important processors now seriously considering releasing some of their surplus equipment, and MachinePoint is very well placed to help them find potential international buyers.
MachinePoint continues to set the standards for safe and secure used machinery transactions. This makes us a preferred partner for companies looking to deal with a truly professional beverages and plastics equipment supplier in the used market.”
MachinePoint has been participating in Brau Beviale over the past several editions and considers it to be one for the most important capital goods exhibitions for the beverage industry. This year it attracted over 40,000 visitors and some 1000 exhibitors showcasing the latest technologies and solutions for the sector.
Thanks to a combination of web, mail, social networks and trade fair promotion MachinePoint team has captured several interesting projects during the show. MachinePoint has a worldwide presence and is specialized in intercountry machinery sales. Most of the business is carried out virtually and the MachinePoint team, buyer and seller do not have many chances to meet up so trade fairs like Brau Beviale are perfect as a meeting point. And as most of MachinePoint used machinery for sale is located in Europe the location of the trade fair makes a great base for those customers willing to combine their trip to the fair with used machinery inspections.
