K2010 Plastics Show

K2010 is over and now the real hard work begins!

After 8 days of discussions and presentations, customer and distributor meetings, new contacts and old friends Wells heads back to the UK.

The Show has been an outstanding success with a surge of interest in the Reverte Oxo-biodegradable technology.

John James, Export Manager for Wells Plastics declared ‘we were delighted with the interest on Reverte from potential customers all over the world, it was immediately clear that the branding policy for Reverte had worked extraordinarily well and that it was certain to yield extensive new business’.

Carl Birch, Sales and Marketing Director commented that the well defined distribution pathway which had been developed over the last 4 years meant that all enquires could be quickly and effectively followed up with trained distributors in the local market place. This would ensure that any lead taken at the K Show would be developed to its full potential.

During the show Wells Plastics were also able to develop new opportunities for Bactiglas, Wells Plastics antimicrobials powders and masterbatches which have an extensive field of use in producing antimicrobial surfaces.

These materials can be used in a wide range of polymers and applications from BOPP films through to powder coatings. Alex Jones, Product Manager for Bactiglas explained that he felt this K Show had highlighted the need for a company such as Wells who is able to provide bespoke antimicrobial products with the level of Technical and Regulatory support that the modern day customer expects a supplier to be able to deliver.

Flameproof, masterbatches and compounds were another highlight of the Wells offering at this K Show the level of interest was extremely high with many customers looking for high performance halogen free flame retardant systems with minimal impact on the physical properties of the finished item when compared to systems which use more traditional halogenated systems. Wells remain extremely confident that the bespoke range of Flameproof materials will continue to grow in popularity.
