Agritechnica 2013 report

IMG 1691

In the area of over 380,000 m2 in 24 closed halls the latest technological advances in the development of agricultural mechanization are shown. This year is the first time there was emphasis on "systems and components" which are subdivided into 3 halls. POD proizvodnja opruga Ltd was the only exhibitor from Croatia within specialized halls for components. At the fair we had over 130 contacts with potential customers.

Given the continuity of exhibiting the company has become recognizable and this year we had the most interest for cooperation. It is worth noting that from existing customers at the fair four manufacturers of machinery from Slovenia, four from Germany and three from Austria were exibiting. In a conversation with them, we learned that they are very satisfied with the quality and delivery time. Also Croatian accession to the EU has resulted in increased interest of potential customers.

The company had made, in our first week after the fair, received first orders from FIMAKS company (Turkey). Contact has been made four months earlier at the fair in Turkey but at the Hannover we defined items and areas of cooperation; double torsion, torsion and compression springs. A review of the Turkish machinery in general showed us very poor quality of springs, especially in surface protection.

The following table shows a list of all contacts made at the fair. With every company there is a possibility of cooperation. Given that these are industries that have a high requirement of springs if we achieve cooperation with 5% of the companies (about 6-7) could result that in the next two years we could achieve a turnover of 300,000 euros (conservatively speaking). There is a possibility of achieving cooperation with far more companies and in larger amounts individually and in total.
