The IMTEX trade fair, which recently hosted 1,032 exhibitors from 24 countries and 89,000 trade visitors, is the most important international machine tool trade fair in South and South-East Asia. It is held every two years in Bangalore, one of India's largest industrial centres. Blum-Novotest GmbH was present at the trade fair for the sixth time with its Indian subsidiary. Wolfgang Pfleghar, who is responsible in BLUM's international sales operations, draws a completely positive balance.
The crowning moment of the seven-day event (26.01.2017 - 01.02.2017) was definitely the visit of a delegation headed by Winfried Kretschmann, the prime minister of the German federal state of Baden-Württemberg, to the Blum-Novotest GmbH stand. The delegation, which visited the Bangalore trade fair during a 1-week tour of the region, also included economic affairs minister, Dr. Nicole Hoffmeister-Kraut and several permanent secretaries. They took the opportunity to find out more about the high quality production measurement technology of Blum-Novotest GmbH. The prominent visitors were visibly impressed, especially by the wide range of applications of BLUM laser measuring systems and by the fact that this medium-sized family-owned company is the clear world leader in this sector.
