Interplastica – Used machinery expert Machine Point was indeed happy about the quality of enquiries at its booth at Interplastica in Moscow recently.

For companies and businesses that wish to nurture and expand business relationships in Russia and the CIS , Interplastica in Moscow is a must-attend trade fair. The 2019 edition which ended 1 February attracted visitors mainly from Russia and a good number from the CIS region, with exhibitors having come from numerous countries around the globe, with a good representation of German, Austrian, Italian and Chinese exhibitors. Fittingly, Upakovka, the Russian International Trade Fair for Processing and Packaging, took place simultaneously with the 4-day long Interplastica to provide two leading industries showcase new technological developments and provide a platform for direct contact. Among the exhibits were new machinery and equipment developments, raw materials, semi-finished products and components.

According to Interplastica statistics, over 50% of visitors at Interplastica were in search of equipment solutions. A German pavilion with strong German participation was a plus point as German machinery is very popular in the Russian market because of its high-quality technology. A factor which Italian machinery also enjoys in Russia. This firmly supports the trend that Russian processors are investing, both to expand their production lines and also to increase their quality.

With the Russian plastics equipment industry having experienced a severe slow-down in investments in 2015 and 2016, 2017 saw a big increase of European machinery imports. While this trend took a dip in 2018, according to Amaplast, the Italian machinery association, this downturn is expected to be less dramatic than the cycles of the past decade. Predictions by the main German and Italian machinery associations on the Russian machinery sales in 2019, however, remain uncertain.

Marco Marchiorello, Machine Point´s Area Business Manager for the region, commented: “We are very happy with the show this year. We received around the same number of visitors at our booth as in 2018, however, the quality of requests for our used machinery and services is higher.”

He added that this good resonance had exceeded expectations, which will provide the company a positive outlook for 2019 in terms of the demand for used machinery in the Russian market. Furthermore, the were more enquiries from new customers than existing ones, with the most being Russian followed by a small number from Belorussia, Kazakhstan and the Ukraine. In terms of the sector, there were more than usual interest for recycling machines.

Machine Point offers a complete service to companies to buy or sell used machinery in or from Russia. Imports and exports of used machinery in Russia is a tricky business and Machine Point assures mishaps, be it delays, unwanted surprises or loss of money, to be avoided.
