During February Micropore Technologies participated in a Market Visit to India led by NEPIC (the North East Process Industry Cluster) and supported by DIT, to further develop relationships established during a 2016 trade mission.
For Micropore the trip provided some useful connections from start to finish with a first order for a piece of scaled-up equipment in India being placed by an established client in Hyderabad during a meeting on the way out; to expressions of interests from a number of members of the KDPMA (Karnataka Drug and Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association) in Bangalore, including an agreement to work together with a specialist dermatological products supplier. There was also a first contact with Tata Chemicals in Pune and tangible interest being shown by a number of businesses following the ICC conference in Mumbai.
Overall Micropore are encouraged by the interest being shown generally by Indian businesses in their unique technology. “We’ll be enthusiastically following up all of the contacts made during this trip and are eagerly looking forward to participating in a reciprocal trade visit being planned for June 2017, where we will get the chance to renew relationships with some of the contacts made and develop our relationships further” says Dai Hayward.
Micropore Technologies was delighted to be exhibiting at Crops and Chemicals Europe in Berlin during February. The event was a well-attended, with representatives from a diverse range of companies. Visitors to the Micropore stand showed interest in the company's technologies for both improving stability of emulsion concentrates and high-tech delivery systems using micro-encapsulation.
“As Agro-Chemicals are generally high volume applications, the new Micropore LTS-1/PTS systems stand us in good stead for meeting those demanding volume requirements. We’re happy to run small scale feasibility studies to help our clients demonstrate the quality improvements membrane emulsification can bring”, commented Micropore’s Business Development Manager, Dave Palmer.
“The conference was such a success we have already signed up for next year and look forward to seeing you there!”
