Still GmbH, the German manufacturer of electronic forklift trucks, exhibited its showpiece, the RXX, the forklift of the future presented for the first time outside Europe by Al Shirawi Enterprises L.L.C. We were overwhelmed by the visitor turnout, specially trade visitors from the UAE and the Gulf. We expect many inquiries to firm into business propositions. The response showed that the industry is heading for re-growth.
Al Thika Packaging, a first-time exhibitor, made many head turns by showcasing its self-propelled pallet wrapper, the Robopac Robot 2003. We were impressed by the category of visitors. We received a lot of inquiries, including a serious offer from Sudan. There was a huge response to our heavy duty and end of line packaging systems. We could not have thought of a better venue to launch our Robopac Robot, said Tim Ansell, Sales Manager, Al Thika Packaging.
