Krones Live in Bangkok
From 12 to 15 June, Thailand’s capital Bangkok once again hosted ProPak Asia. Together with more than 1,400 exhibitors, Krones presented itself as a competent partner for flexible and individual complete solutions. This time, visitors to the stand had a very special opportunity to get to know Krones.
One highlight at the Krones stand was the Contiflow mixer, our all-rounder for mixing ready-to-drink beverages: while metering syrup and CO2 with high precision, it also impresses with its flexible range of production speeds.
In addition, digital solutions convinced the clients, as Piyawat Pornoy, LCS Sales Manager Krones Thailand, explains: “Our customers are looking for technologies that they can apply to their existing machines. This year at ProPak we are introducing the remote visual support, called Argos. It allows customers to use so called smart glasses to get interactive support by our team in real time. Another technology we are presenting is the Krones.shop, that is already well known. And we are developing more and more, for example more customized solutions.”
Many of these solutions from the Krones product portfolio were presented to visitors in short live presentations on the subjects of digitalisation, process technology, filling and packaging technology, so that they could get to know them better and then talk to one of the experts directly. The energy and media analysis was also presented in such live presentations, with a clear focus on sustainability in the production of our customers. The Krones subsidiaries Evoguard, MHT and KIC Krones also gave an overview of their solutions.
Old acquaintances and new contacts
Regis Herve, Head of Sales Central South East Asian Countries was very happy with the traffic to the booth and the conversations he had: “On a pure visitor point of view, we can say that the ProPak 2019 exhibition was again a success for Krones. We are satisfied by the visits we had, both in terms of quantity and quality. The majority of the companies who visited the Krones booth were existing customers, most of them from Thailand. This was an excellent opportunity to develop further the bond which unites us to them, and in some cases, discuss future projects. We also welcomed visitors from other Asian countries. On top of that, we had the pleasure to meet with new potential customers, who would like Krones to support their own development.”
Krones booth in elegant design
An exclusive design created a modern and stylish atmosphere at the Krones booth: LED walls and light boxes, newly designed pylons, a modern meeting area and an innovative wall design created an all-round harmonious appearance.
Conclusion on the fair
Overall: the trade fair was a complete success. Regis Herve points out that the ProPak 2019 exhibition “is an excellent indicator of the dynamic happening at the moment in the Southeast Asian markets, and the fact that more and more companies are willing to cooperate with Krones. This lets us hope that we can develop our business in the region, not only with filling and packaging solutions, but also with the other products and technologies that we have in the House of Krones.”
And Rata Dulyapat, my Thai colleague on site, is particularly pleased about “the many good discussions with existing, new and potential customers – and about the high number of visitors from different Asian countries. We welcomed many visitors from Asia in particular”. And she is looking forward to again being able to show solutions at the next ProPak that will inspire customers.
The best way to convince yourself of the pleasant atmosphere at the booth is to have fun with the pictures and video.
