Interview, Mr Alexandre THORN, President of SECIMPAC
“After many years of absence when investment was dedicated to developing new products and to reinforcing sales teams, the portable electric tools companies that are members of SECIMPAC (association of international dealers in portable machines) are returning to BATIMAT 2011, the essential meeting place for construction professionals. This return by the profession to BATIMAT is due to a desire to present numerous innovations to the sector, which is the main engine for our growth (16% up on 2010 to date), and also for that of our trade distribution partners.
This will undoubtedly be a dynamic show featuring numerous special events on each of the stands of the brands that belong to SECIMPÄC.
Our aim is to make our innovations known to the end users of our products and we are seeking to work with the approach of our distribution partners.
This will clearly be an outstanding opportunity to reinforce out relationships with all those involved in distribution.
What is more, SECIMPAC companies and their eco-organizations have joined forces to increase the collection rate for our tools at the ends of their lives; and we will be pursuing an initiative to raise awareness of this amongst visitors to the portable electric tools space.
