Tsurupinsk, Ukraine -- Machinery maker OSV Technology has its eyes on European and South East Asian markets this year.
Managing director Alexey Kuznetsov said: “In 2014 OSV Technology arranged serial production of high pressure foaming machines of H Series and supplied a few units to our customers from Ukraine and Russia.
Besides, this year we've finished several big projects for production of machines for processing of multi-component polyurethane hot casting elastomers based on MDI and TDI for customers in the Ukraine, Russia and Poland.
"It's important that the sales geography of OSV equipment rather changed," he said. "It decreased in Russia but, at the same time, it increased in eastern and western European countries." An example of this is the rigid panel lines the company delivered to Serbia earlier this year, which we reported here.
Kuznetsov also said that his company’s sales had risen within the local Ukrainian market, “despite of the difficult political and economical situation in our country,” he added.
“In 2015 we will proceed with new developments in the field of mixing and metering of polymeric materials, upgrade across the range of OSV equipment and expand our sales network.
“Particularly, we plan to find new distributors for the territories of East and West Europe, as well as in South East Asia countries.
“Some steps has been already made in November 2014 when we established new technical support department at our branch in Lithuania. The main tasks of our new division are technical support and commissioning of new OSV equipment for our customers located in EU countries,” Kuznetsov added.
He also said the company was looking forward to exhibiting at "specialised trade fairs such as UTECH Europe 2015 in Maastricht, where OSV will demonstrating its new technology.”
