This year the three partner brands of SLOVARM, SLOVPLAST and PREMATLAK shared the common exhibition space at the Trade Fair in Prague. On the area of 15.000 square meters 212 exhibitors from ten countries were showing their produce. The three of our partner brands from Energy Group joined the event to form common 70-square-meter large exhibotion stand. The stand was in blue, the color representing the brands of SLOVARM, SLOVPLAST and PREMATLAK. Each company showed their own part of produce, but the theme was shared by all three – production of fittings in Myjava (or, as in case of PREMATLAK, from around Myjava). During the first two days we were entertaining our current, and also potential future business partners, who were interested in seeing our exhibits.
As to SLOVARM, the range of shown specimen included, as expected, those well known, together with some of the latest produce. Roman Koprda, Director of Sales, comments on the exhibition he himself attended: „We wanted to show the visitors and our partners our new produce of sanitary tapware. To satisfy the great number of our traditional customers, the selection of our well known products was included. Those varied from classical valves to our typical brass produce, remembered and valued by our grandmothers. However, we must keep our offer up to date, which is why all the innovations are introduced to satisfy the needs of the modern generation. The young simply love it.“ To highlight on the new produce, we displayed, among others, our inclined non-return and drainage valves. Of course, there were also our plastic fittings to be seen. We simply wanted to show – on the international platform and on the Trade Fair where the best are showing their best – the maximum of what Myjava, our producing lines and our hard-working employees can offer.
As in the case of AQUATHERM in Nitra a year before, this time in Prague we once again shared our exhibition space with SLOVPLAST. Gabriela Pivonková, the company´s Manager of Sales, together with Darek Stöhr, their Sales Dirrector, entertained the visitors from their part. Pivonková said: „Our visitors and customers were interested, first of all, in seeing our new product, P-2447 Float Valve in all its variants. They fancied also the products already known, such as T-1015C , T-740, T-726N/I, T-726N/III, T-1437C, P-2446EF, P-3557, P-3558 and T-3546 in color.“
It was for the first time that the company of PREMATLAK joined our shared exhibition stand. Represented by their Sales Director, Milan Klimáček, the company also presented, first of all, their traditional produce, such as mechanical pressure and temperature gauges. Some visitors were interested in the accessories and servicing of pressure gauges, and also in the options of their tailor made manufacture according to the specific needs of a customer.
Our exibition stand, apart from bearing the logos of all the three companies, showed also some reference to the 80-year history of fittings production in Myjava. This anniversary was also the reason why the czech Guild of Heating Engineers and Plumbers paid us a visit and expressed their wish of having us at the upcomming Trade Fair in Brno.
Our example of three companies under one roof received also some positive acclaims from the visiting representatives of Energy Group, in the name of which Štefan Vystavel, the Group PR and HR manager, said: „We are happy to see, that companies whose presented porfolios and target groups are closely related, were able to co-ordinate their presenting efforts in such a way. We are the members of the same group and, if we show such a support to each other, it can only help us all.“
Our three companies were represented by their Sales Managers as follows: Dušan Duga, Milan Vašek, Zdenko Bruder, Ingrid Matušinská and their Marketing Manager, Iveta Klemanová, for the SLOVARM company; Ingrid Pivoňková, the Manager of Sales, and Darek Stöhr, the Director of Sales, for the company of SLOVPLAST; and, last but not least, Milan Klimáček, the Sales Director of PREMATLAK.
