PDM reports that they despite difficult economic conditions exhibitors found themselves with good attendance and solid orders.
Premier Moulding Machinery was thrilled to receive a substantial order from Mason & Pearson (hairbrushes) while Romi Sandretto secured an order for an HP165 165 tonne injection moulding machine. Geoff Gamage, business development executive, Maxell Moulding Services, said: “We have met with production managers and designers who generally want to discuss projects that are actually ready for production - which is how we like it!”

Alan Bennett, national sales manager, Sumitomo Demag, said: “We had a great opening day and met with nine people who plan to buy machines in the next 12 months. Seven of those were totally new customers we would never have known about if we didn’t come to the show.”

PDM attracted visitors with purchasing responsibility, while around 150 exhibiting companies unveiled their latest developments and demonstrated production processes on their stands. Designers attended PDM’s two design feature stands, curated by designer and materials expert Chris Lefteri, to experience first-hand a wide variety of tactile, decorative and functional material samples and plastic products.

“PDM provided a good opportunity for networking, benchmarking and updating our technology knowledge. I did enjoy the show and hope it continues for many years to come,” said Mike Matthews, managing director of Nifco UK Ltd, who visited the show.

Anne Taylor, director of business and investment for Transforming Telford which sponsored PDM and officially opened the show said: “More than ever in this time of recession it is important to understand what new developments, production processes and innovation are out there in the industry...Despite the current economic climate, there are many opportunities in the market place with the growth of environmental and building technologies. The plastics industry is at the forefront of these developments and by hosting PDM we hope to give our local companies a national platform to promote what we do here in Telford.”

PDM’s event director Steve Crowhurst said: “This year’s PDM event provided an excellent forum for exchanging ideas and a first class platform from which to do business. We were really impressed by the quality of visitors and delighted that our exhibitors are reporting genuine interest - and in some cases solid orders - as a result. In times like this we understand the huge commitment it takes for a company to exhibit at a show.
