Talking about the response at interpack, Ajit Krishnan, sales engineer, Hilda Automation said that although the first two days were a bit slow in terms of footfall, things gained momentum from the third day. “It is a week-long show and one cannot expect all days to be equally busy. However, overall, we had a great show. There were visitors from UK, US, Turkey and even from India,” he said.
This was Hilda Automation’s third participation in interpack. According to Krishnan, interpack has been a great platform to get to know more about global markets, especially developed markets like Europe. Currently, the company’s main market is South Asia, Middle East and Africa with a few customers in Europe and North America as well.
