The CFIA (Carrefour des Fournisseurs de l'Industrie Agroalimentaire) in Rennes, a trade fair for food packaging and the food industry, is an important platform for international companies working in this branch. From 07.03. to 09.03.2017, 1,450 participants exhibited at the fair and a total of 20,000 people visited the CFIA. ECONO-PAK also participated in this trade fair for the second year in a row, together with MCA, the sales partner for France.
A joint booth of MCA and ECONO-PAK represented both companies equally. Visitors and interested parties were thus able to find out about the product portfolio and the joint machine projects of both special machine manufacturers.
The two highlights of the trade fair booth were the presented loading robot for the wet cleaning area by MCA as well as the carton erector for tab-lock boxes by ECONO-PAK. Due to the complementary competencies of the two mechanical engineering companies, many joint packaging lines with robot loading have already been installed, amongst others for example for the food industry worldwide. The second exhibition at the CFIA attracted many interested parties and customers. Particularly the exhibited and ready-to-use carton erector attracted many enthusiastic visitors, who informed themselves about the shown tab-lock technique of the carton erector.
Overall, many informative and constructive discussions were held, new inquiries could be generated and already existing customers came to the booth for further project meetings. ECONO-PAK would like to thank all visitors for the interest shown, especially MCA for the invitation to participate and the eventful and successful exhibition days.
