MOTOFIL returns once more to the industrial fair INDUSTRIE PARIS 2018.
The event took place between the 27th and 30th of March in the Paris-Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre, and for this edition, Motofil presented, for the first time in France, its fibre laser cutting machine, MFL 315, with an improved performance, as well as the usual equipment of robotics and welding wire.
The attendees were very interested in MFL since day one, because “despite some knowing what laser cutting machines are, other attendees were seeing, for the first time, this type of equipment functioning”, explains Joana Ferreira, who is part of the technical assistance team of Motofil Cutting. Furthermore, she says that “what draw the attendees attention was the speed/acceleration of the machine and the function of identification and rationing of material, with which it was equiped.”
Paulo Monteiro, European Sales Manager, represented Motofil once again during this trade show and says that this event marks the first step of the new strategy for the French market. This strategy is based on a “strong partnership with a French company [RUCON], which will allow an expansion in this market in the area of robotics and sheet laser cutting. This local partner and the robotics and cutting references that we already have in this market, makes our growth perspective very positive.”
Despite the focus on the cutting equipment, Motomig, a company which continues to notoriously grow in Central Europe, was also present in Industrie and according to Pedro Romão, Sales Representative of Motomig, it was possible to see “the interest of the attendees in the quality of the products manufactured in Motomig. Since 2012 that Motomig is present in this market and every year we can see its growth”. Pedro Romão also wants to thanks everyone for “the trust”, assuring that the aim of Motomig will continue to be “answering to the needs of each client.”
During the trade show, we had the honour to be visited by Augusto Santos Silva, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Portugal, and Eurico Brilhante Dias, the Secretary of State of Internationalisation. This type of visits represents the recognition of the investment Motofil is making in exporting Portuguese solutions for major markets, resulting in an important contribution to national economy.
Looking back, Motofil’s participation in Industrie was very positive. A lot of new contacts were made and the visitors got interested in knowing more about the range of products of Motofil. In 2019, Motofil will return to Industrie, this time in Lyon.
