As a business, we travel thousands of miles every year to exhibit at expos relating to the textile testing and nonwoven industries, and last year exhibited all over the world - from the USA to Indonesia and many places in between.
With over 90% of our goods and services now being exported abroad, exhibitions are an excellent way of keeping in contact with overseas markets, showing them what's new from us and allowing us to learn what's new with them.
Our specialist network of exclusive James Heal agents also ensures that we are represented throughout the world, meaning customers have local support on hand whenever they need it.
Last year we successfully exhibited in Cambodia for the first time. Cambodia is an emerging market, which is seeing an increase in garment manufacturers from around the world setting up new production facilities. International test houses are also setting up facilities in the country, and James Heal International Sales Manager Simon Dakin, who attended the exhibition, was pleased we decided to exhibit there;
'We are excited about the prospects Cambodia has to offer. The CIMF exhibition surpassed our expectations in terms of visitors, and we met with a number of existing and potential customers.
'Garment manufacturing is beginning to have a strong presence in the country, and we look forward to working with our agents Thach Anh Vang to explore the opportunities in this emerging market. '
James Heal are also excited about exhibiting in Brasil for the first time later this year, where we will join the BTMA (British Textile Machinery Association) on their stand at the Tecnotextil exhibition in São Paulo.
Please come and visit the James Heal stand if you are visiting any of the exhibitions we are attending, and see why our British designed and manufactured testing instruments are going global!
