More visitors and increased interest in thermoforming machines at CHINAPLAS 2018

The 32nd International Exhibition on Plastics & Rubber Industries in Asia took place from 23-27 April, 2018 in Shanghai.

ILLIES CHINA presented on its own booth the leading German manufacturer of thermoforming machines and CNC milling machines GEISS AG. The interest in the exhibited thermoplastic made products such as air ducts and dashboards for the automotive industry, as well as foldable plastic pallets with high load bearing capacity, was visibly higher compared to 2017. Most of the international customers and local business audience were interested in the usage of the high-quality operating machines made by GEISS for the automotive, aviation and medical industries.

During the 4-day trade fair the team of ILLIES CHINA and GEISS informed long-term business partners, as well as new prospective customers, about the manufacturing process of individual thermoformed elements. Also, employees of the ILLIES GROUP from Indonesia, Vietnam, Japan and Korea participated in the trade fair and actively supported customers from these countries by accompanying them and connecting them with local specialists.   

This year, more than 180 TSD visitors came to CHINAPLAS, 26% of which from abroad. The trade fair takes place annually and is a must-attend event for manufacturers and traders in the field of Machinery & Equipment, Raw Materials and Auxiliaries.
