Initial results have exceeded all expectations!
Sales Manager, Konecranes:
- Konecranes is the world leader in the production and development of lifting equipment. For over 80 years, we have been dedicated to improving the efficiency and productivity of businesses in all types of industries, providing robust lifting equipment and services. Our group under the Lifting Businesses trademark serves a broad range of customers presenting manufacturing and processing industries, shipyards, ports and freight terminals. We have representations in more than 50 countries and employ more than 12,000 people.
Our company is participating in TransCaspian for the first time. Here we are presenting port and shipyard equipment – from multiple rigging hoists to shipyard cranes. Our machines are already in use in Azerbaijan: some of the shipbuilding cranes in Baku Shipyard and the heavy loaders at BP’s platforms are our products. In the future we plan to open a representation here.
The first day of the exhibition turned out to be rather productive for us: we held meetings with Baku International Sea Trade Port and Azerbaijan Railways CJSC representatives. Today, on the second day of the exhibition, we’ve arranged negotiations with officials from the new international seaport that is under construction. These results have exceeded our expectations. Hopefully, as a result of the exhibition, we will sign new contracts and agreements.
