“The demand for all-electric solutions goes up from year to year. Moreover, with our new Mercury Series we are introducing a machine, which is setting new benchmarks in more than just speed and precision. It also allows processing complex and new materials so it can be used in difficult areas of application as well” says Professor h.c. Helmar Franz, CEO of Zhafir Plastics Machinery and Executive Director and CSO of the Haitian International Holding.
The market has recovered and the need for energy saving concepts is greater than ever. Exports went up by 101.9% in 2010 to 1,698.5 million RMB. This equates to a 24.1% share of sales. Uwe Baer, General Manager of Haitian Europe, said: “Together with our sales partners we placed more than 500 machines in Europe in 2010. This means a more than 50% increase over the previous year. So we are in line with the Trend.” Steffen Franz , Engineer and Technical Director of Zhafir in Ebermannsdorf endorses this statement: “The more than 100 Venus machines sold and an increasing demand for our new Mercury are proof of the steadily growing interest in all-electric solutions in Europe. We are counting on a definite surge this year.”
Mr. Zhang about future perspectives: “The great demand for our machines is continuing in the new year as well. Additional production capacities, for example with the start of production in Vietnam in the second quarter, are increasing the rating for our export sales. We are positioned optimally and are looking forward to the challenge this year.”
