This year’s NPE – for the first time in Orlando, Florida – demonstrated that America’s plastics industry is on the way up again! An impressive number of visitors showed up at the Brückner Group’s booth – and they made clear that they see attractive new business opportunities for the plastics industry in North as well as in South America.

“We received large interest for KIEFEL machines. A fact which proves that the American market developed very positively”, said Steven Hoenig , President of Brueckner USA Inc. in Portsmouth NH. “However, we were still slightly surprised by the great demand for our products, not only for packaging industry but also for automotive and medical applications and the very positive feedback from our customers regarding the quality of our machines and service.”

As on demonstration, the THERMORUNNER KTR 6 L Cup Forming Machine, processing PP with a 50up drinking cup tool, also took center stage and attracted keen interest.

“Overall an excellent show, in general and for KIEFEL”, so Steven Hoenig in conclusion.

We wish to thank all visitors and business partners for their interest in our products and the promising discussions we had in Orlando.
