SACMI is set to reinforce its role as the leading technological partner of water and soft drink bottlers based in East Africa. Ethiopia Food+Bev Tec 2019, the third edition of the fair, soon to be held in the capital Addis Abeba (Millennium Hall E.9, 9-11 May 2019), will be a must-attend event for the dynamic, fast-growing local beverage industry.
There are a number of good reasons to partner up with SACMI. Firstly: we're the world's leading provider of technology for the manufacture of caps, containers and preforms. That leadership is particularly strong on the African market. Here, all major bottlers are supplied by converters who produce caps and preforms using SACMI machines. What's more, the market continues to experience average annual food&bev technology import growth rates of over 20%.
Secondly: continuous innovation. Thanks to SACMI's ability to develop lighter, higher-performing caps and develop complete, customised cap-bottle systems together with customers, industry multinationals – who have invested hundreds of millions of dollars in the area in recent years – continue to see SACMI technology as the best response to market demand for flexibility, sustainability and high performance.
All SACMI's work in the industry revolves around the Group's Beverage-Closures R&D Lab, equipped to offer bottlers and converters fully guaranteed results right from the pre-industrialisation stage. It's no chance occurrence, in fact, that the SACMI Lab facility is certified by key international beverage players (including Pepsi).
Recent developments likely to be of keen interest to manufacturers operating in young, dynamic economies like those in Africa include the SACMI Group's capacity to offer all-round assistance, before, during and after the sale. Alongside an efficient, fast-response spare parts service (managed thanks to three SACMI branches, strategically located across Africa) stands the SACMI Customer Service Division, fully equipped to provide customers with remote support from a specialised SACMI technician, anywhere in the world, 7 days a week.
So, what are you waiting for? Ethiopia Food+Bev Tec, 9-11 May 2019, SAVE THE DATE!
SACMI, leading the way, worldwide.
