Vitrum launch for new partnerships
PROMAC has marked Vitrum 2019 the glass machinery expo by unveiling four new supply agreements as well as a series of new strategic associations agreed at.
The group said that following this year’s show it was able to announce a series of new supply agreements with key innovators including automatic digital printing specialist Tec Glass and glass cutting experts Turomas, which manufactures a range of glass cutting tables and automatic loading systems.
It has also agreed terms with OM Mistrello, manufacturer of glass handling and logistic systems, plus GMR (Glass Machinery Re-conditioners) a global distributor of used equipment.
Managing director Joe Hague said the group had also put in place new strategic associations with other UK independents, including Flat Glass Solutions; Kall Kwik; and PAL Machinery.
He added that Forel, which attended this year’s event with one of the single largest footprints, had also reported a high degree of interest in its high tech Jumbo IGU line, best-selling vertical processing line and automatic sorting systems.
“Forel was at Vitrum in force with the largest most innovative machinery display platform by a margin”, he said. “Although UK and Irish customers were down on previous years, It was clear that those who had made the trip to Milan were focused on specific projects”.
He added that strategic alliances with other ‘likeminded’ UK based machinery and service providers represented a key element of Promac’s forward strategy.
“Continuing to build service excellence whilst improving choice will benefit our new and or our existing mutual customers”, he explained. “This includes expanding different skill sets as well as increasing enhanced engineering and support services that meet and surpass customer expectation.
