230 exhibitors from 16 countries showcased part-cleaning goods and services for every link of the industrial value chain.
Christian Härtel, sales executive, Zippel GmbH
"It was one of the best trade fairs we’ve experienced in a long time. We took part in the Guided Tours and used the organizer’s press service to profile our new cleaning plant during the lead-up to the show. This boosted the visitor turnout at our stand – so much so, in fact, that all of our staff here were constantly busy with talks and meetings. We encountered visitors from a wide range of industries. The country mix was also very diverse, and included Italy, France, Japan, China, India and Sweden. We will be back again in 2017."
Rainer Straub, Sales Director, Ecoclean GmbH
"We were surprised to encounter a large number of customers with ongoing capital investment projects who were keen to finalize their investment decisions. We also fielded a number of very promising new inquiries – no doubt due in part to the new systems we were showcasing. Apart from that, we engaged in fruitful dialogue with business delegates from various Asian countries, including India and Japan."
Berk Gülörten, Sales Manager, Protechnology Endüstriyel Makine Ve Kimya Sanayi Tic. Ltd. Stl., Turkey
"We make aqueous parts cleaning systems and are very happy with our decision to exhibit at this year’s parts2clean. We made over 100 promising new leads, which is fantastic. The show is a plus for our company because it attracts industry professionals who know what they are looking for and what they need. And that is why we’ll be back again next year."
Sandra Wensch, Marketing Manager, Sita Messtechnik GmbH
"This year we had a larger booth, and I’m pleased to say that almost all of our staff here were busy talking to visitors the whole time. We made a lot of new leads. Our customers come primarily from the automobile, metalworking and electroplating industries. The majority of the visitors we encountered came from Germany, Austria and Switzerland, although about a third were from non German-speaking countries. parts2clean is the main event in our trade show calendar, so we will definitely be back in 2017."
Olivier Huin, President, Microvision Instruments, France
"It's the fourth time we’ve exhibited here. We are a provider of software and turnkey solutions for contamination control, so it is vital that we have a presence at parts2clean because all of our competitors exhibit here too. The show has an international focus and has in the past yielded a number of new customers from our domestic market. This year we also encountered strong interest in our systems among visitors from Slovenia, Italy, Turkey and Germany."
Gerhard Koblenzer, CEO of LPW Reinigungssysteme GmbH
"The show went very well for us, which is in keeping with market trends over the year so far. Our custom aqueous cleaning systems are doing very well. And in the high-purity segment, demand is increasing sharply on the back of industrial processes like coating and adhesive bonding, which have more stringent cleanliness requirements."
Pietro Bussi, Product Development and Sales Manager, Bussi Demagnetizing Systems, Italy
"Demagnetization is an increasingly important part of meeting the stringent standards of particulate decontamination required in the case of ferromagnetic components. The inquiries we fielded from existing and potential customers at parts2clean were very specific to this area, which was very pleasing. The show met our expectations, and we will be back again in 2017."
Chuck Sexton, Global Product Line Manager Industrial, Kyzen, USA
“parts2clean is one of the top events on our worldwide tradeshow circuit, and this year’s show went extremely well for us. "We generated a lot of leads, most of them in the manufacturing industry, although there were a number from the electronics industry. They included leads with both new and existing customers as well as dialogue with our partners from the plant manufacturing sector. And so, for us, exhibiting at parts2clean is always a very good networking opportunity. We’ll be here again in 2017."
Dr. Christian Rösener, chemical service engineer, Safechem Europe GmbH
"All in all it was another very positive parts2clean for Safechem. Our stand received a steady team of visits throughout the show – both from potential customers and from the many professionals using it as the central in-show networking hub for our service alliance. We had a number of key meetings with customers in which we jointly explored and developed new strategies."
