Exhibitor testimonials

Sunil Shewaramani, K.D Industries Inc., General Manager, United Arab Emirates
K.D. Industries Inc. is one of the leading manufacturers of Carbon Steel ERW Pipes and Tubes in the United Arab Emirates and was established in the year 2000. For Mr. Shewaramani it is the third time at the Tube and for him it is already a highlight this year: "It is a privilege to take part at the show. It is the biggest fair in the world and every year it is like refreshing yourself with the latest updates in the business. This year, we also focus on american and australien contacts," Mr. Shewaramani says.
Gerhard Berger, SSC Anlagenbau GmbH, Senior Consultant, Austria
SSC Anlagebau GmbH produces equipment for tube construction, seamless rolling mills, mechanical machining and also provides solutions in transport and automatisation business. Mr. Berger is very satisfied with the show so far: "It is very busy, but we didn't expect anything else. We participate at the Tube for years and the fair is extremly well organized as we are used to." He noticed that this year here are many companies from Asia and also from Russia: "It seems to me that there is much to catch up with in terms of industrial production in this region and hopefully we will benefit from that."
Mohd. Asad NEHAL
Jörg Busch, IMS Messsysteme GmbH, General Manager Global Sales & Project and Burkhard Schöttler, IMS Messsysteme GmbH, Produktmanager für Rohrmesssysteme, Deutschland
"Usually it is a bit more quiet on the first day of the fair, because many visitors arrive, but not this time. The first day was surprisingly busy," Mr. Schöttler explains. IMS Messsysteme take part in the fair since the year 1996. "In general we meet existing and potential customers. Especially for international contacts the Tube is perfect. We make more than 60% in sales outside of Europe, so the international aspect of the Tube is very important for us." Mr. Busch would also like to highlight: "We are one of the first producers of 3D-surface inspection systems for the inspection of tubes, slabs, heavy plates and so on. We are very proud of that and very happy to introduce that to the visitors."

Pedro Ferreira, Amob Maquinas Ferramentas, S.A., Sales & Marketing Director, Portugal
Founded in 1960, AMOB has become one of the world’s leading manufacturer of metalworking technologies, providing ranges of specialised equipment for the tube and pipe bending industry. AMOB designs, develops, retails and services a variety of products for a range of industries. Mr. Ferreira analyses: "This year the Tube is better and bigger than before. The last year and the year before were a little bit slower. But this one's is better advertised in my eyes." Another important reason for the success of the Tube is the organization."The Tube provides comprehensive service und consequently there are many decision-makers here at the show."

Visitor statements

Marcos Casto, FaW Automotive, CEO and Marcos Casto, FaW Automotive, CEO, Spain
Both brothers are visiting the wire and the Tube for their company, which produces parts for the interior of cars. They are here to get in contact with machine manufacturers and suppliers for raw materials. "We are relatively flexible. There is a schedule plan but we also try to be spontanious and to be open minded for inspirations. We are really lucky to have two different fairs at one place, which are both relevant for our business," Mr. Casto says. Concerning the development of the past years, he adds: "Fortunately in our business safety has still priority. Saving costs come second."
Johan de Vries
André Fahl, Faco Metalltechnik GmbH & Co. KG, Germany
Mr. Fahl has just arrived with a colleague talking in the background at the exhibition stand they have only four hours left for their plans: "We meet regulary with our Chinese suppliers to discuss our contracts and review changes. Currently we are adjusting the purchase quantities, so that other companies we didn't notice before could be interesting. In addition, the company is working on a completely new project for which there is a concrete task: "We need to find a producer, who can produce our version of a 4-cantilever. That will be a challenge."
Jozef Peeters, Picanol, Belgium
It's the first time for Mr. Peeters visiting the Tube. He works for a big Belgium company that produces high-tech-waving-machines. The goals on his one day trip to Düsseldorf are very well defined: "I'm searching for a company producing riveter maschines or is very familiar with the process at least to help me to find a very special solution for our company. The best about today: I also needed to find somebody who can stretch a conical wire more than 23% whithout breaking and I already found a great company with a simple solution, I just had to think different, no it is clear! This day was and is a big challenge", he smiles.
Parag Gawande, Sterlite Technolgies Limited, India
