Our distributor in Malaysia, Scantech Solutions Sdn Bhd, participated in M-PLAS from November 4th to November 7th, 2009 at Kuala Lumpur Convention Center.

The following is a post show report from Adrian Leong, Sales Director at Scantech Solutions Sdn Bhd:

“The visitor turnout for M-Plas was better than we expected and most importantly, we received inquiries from potential customers that we did not know before who are very interested in Scantech's products.

Our participation in M-Plas was very fruitful and we can consider it a big success, both in terms of introducing the Scantech brand to this region and getting many inquiries for the products which we hope will later translate into sales orders.

The target for next year is to participate in three major exhibitions in Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia, hopefully with a demo system in hand.”

Scantech had plenty of leads which will turn into future sales. We have several customers interested in testing the NPE show scanner.
