Leading purging compound producer, Aquapurge, has opened a sales office in Beynost, near Lyon and the heart of the French plastics processing industries.
The Aquapurge France office is headed up by Etienne Quinot together with new recruit, Catherine Dalphinet. Both have considerable experience and connections in French manufacturing. Both are also contributing to the double-digit Aquapurge sales growth in the French territories.
Aquapurge Sales Manager Donatella Isopi says that “we are delighted to announce such a move and are fortunate also to have such able sales-practitioners leading our sales expansion”.
The Aquapurge France team had already exhibited the company’s wares at the annual meeting of the Ronax Group last month: Ronax is a French collective of companies which is dedicated to all aspects of supplying the French plastics processing industries. Aquapurge France met over 90 potential customers at the July event; organising site visits and company training in the use of purging techniques and purging materials. September will see a large amount of follow-through in the French marketplace.
The next stop on the 2019 exhibition circuit for Aquapurge will be the upcoming K 2019 show in Düsseldorf, October 16-23. Donatella says that “we shall certainly use the K 2019 exhibition as part of our recruitment drive – including further personnel in France!
“A successful track record of selling to the world’s injection moulding industries is desirable – as is a confident sales ability and a team-player attitude.”
Aquapurge is currently shortlisted for the UK’s 2019 Plastics Industry Awards for ‘Most Innovative Material’ (for BBU purging compound) and also for the ‘Best Business Initiative’ for its plan to become the world’s top supplier of purging compound by the year 2023.
“Aquapurge France represents a great new chapter in the history of our business,” says Richard Brayne-Nicholls, Aquapurge Commercial Director, “and the K 2019 exhibition will give us even more opportunity to open up markets and staff Aquapurge offices throughout Europe”.
He adds that “Aquapurge demonstrably makes the best purging compound that injection moulders can buy. We now require the best salespeople to help us sell it worldwide. Our telephone lines are always open and ready to make an appointment with us through the eight days of the K show, October 16-23.”
