ShanghaiTex 2015 was the real deal for USTER
ShanghaiTex is staged every two years at the city’s 100,000 square meter exhibition complex. The show is characterized by a strong emphasis on Chinese visitors, who this year made up 95% of the visitors at the USTER booth. This profile enabled USTER to identify some clear trends in China’s textile manufacturing sector, the most prominent being a new focus by spinning mills on reducing contamination.
Walter Kiechl, the new Chief Operating Officer of Uster Technologies in China, noted: “It was busy on our booth during the first three days of the show, with special interest in our fiber cleaning system. The USTER® JOSSI VISION SHIELD attracted the high attention, and our statistics showed that more than a third of visitors expressed serious interest in this instrument – as well as in USTER’s Total Contamination Control, which was launched in 2014.”
The USTER booth at ShanghaiTex was easily recognized by its distinctive tall funnel, guiding visitors to a red-carpeted world of quality testing and monitoring. The 196 square meter display was presented in the form of islands, each highlighting a particular application, with a total of 13 of USTER’s latest instruments on view.
Visitors took the opportunity for detailed discussions with technical experts – and more. ShanghaiTex 2015 proved to be the place for real business deals. Anson Xu, General Manager for Sales & Service within Uster Technologies in China said: “Compared with ShanghaiTex 2013, significantly more visitors were obviously keen to invest in the quality management of their spinning mills. We are proud to confirm the trust of a spinner in Shandong, who signed a contract for one USTER® AFIS PRO 2, one USTER® TESTER 5, one USTER® TENSOJET 4, one USTER® CLASSIMAT 5, one USTER® ZWEIGLE HL400 and a foreign fiber upgrade for the USTER® QUANTUM 3 yarn clearers on 300 winding positions.”
