Peter Håkansson: We are machinery builders and make machines for bags on roll. 75% of our machines on the market are dedicated to the production of trash bags made of recycled material.
Peter Håkansson: The majority of our sales are made by us, but a good portion also by agents. We almost always sell directly to the end user.
Peter Håkansson: We are looking for trash bag producers as well as companies within the industrial segment, producing construction film and pallet hoods, etc. It could be pure trash bag producers, but also a mix of various products. But again, the trash bag business represents about 75% of the business.
Peter Håkansson: The main source for lead generating is the international plastic shows like Kunststoff, Düsseldorf; NPE, Orlando; and PlastEurasia, Istanbul. But we must admit that Internet and social media are generating more and more contacts.
Peter Håkansson: By tradition, our biggest markets used to be North America and Western Europe, but for a few years, we have been moving east to countries like Russia, Poland, Turkey and Saudi Arabia. Simply due to market growth when the local needs increase.
Peter Håkansson: Our simplicity in design of machines, very easy to operate, easy access for service and maintenance. The modular concept also makes it very easy to make various combinations for different applications. The machines are simple to use!
Peter Håkansson: Yes, quite a lot. Our web page is used for interaction with leads, prospects and customers. We also use Internet connection for fault tracing and production assistance on a remote basis.
Peter Håkansson: We always look forward for improvements. One focus is on the technology itself. The best plastic bag isn’t better than its seal! We are aware that the blown film industry is getting wider in terms of wider bubbles, higher line speeds, higher demands on quick setting times etc. We will follow this development by dedicated equipment to handle this.
Still our basic idea is alive, run the converting machines in-line with the extruder
