“The show garnered us more leads than last time. They are always quality leads. We once again sold machines off of the floor,” said Paul Irvine, chief executive officer of Toronto-based Plexpack Corp., on hand to demonstrate the company’s new Emplex Bag Sealer, model MPS7700-M.
Plexpack’s fresh produce company customers include suppliers of cherries and hot peppers.
“I was not at the show two years ago, but in talking with other Octal folks who were at the show in 2011, this year’s show was better attended and the quality of the attendees was very good. As for the foot traffic in our booth, it was better than we had expected, which was really encouraging. And the number and quality of leads we received was excellent,” said Mark Hunt, North American sales director for Octal Inc., Plano, Texas. “For us, the value of attending the show was getting time with both existing customers as well as prospective customers to better understand what’s important to them as it relates their PET packaging and how we at Octal can help them achieve their packaging objectives whether that be with our DPET sheet and/or our PET resin.”
