The recent opening of the Iranian market, the result of positive developments on the international relations front, offers unprecedented prospects for European technology providers. These, of course, include the Sacmi Group, which has been doing business on this market for many years and is now fully prepared to take on the role of all-round plant engineer for the beverage and packaging industry.
This, then, is the backdrop to final preparations for the 23rd edition of Iran Food + Bev Tec: to be held in the capital of Teheran from 30th May to 2nd June 2016, this fair will focus on technological solutions for an industry that – in 2016 alone – can expect some 50 million dollars of investment from local industry. Participating with its own stand (hall 38), Sacmi will be showcasing the very best from its beverage & packaging technology and plant engineering range; these begin with complete, automated, ultra-clean filling lines and go on to include cap and container manufacturing solutions that, thanks to compression technology, offer intrinsic advantages in terms of quality, productivity and energy/raw material savings.
The Sacmi Group is characterised by product and service excellence. The Group has been in Iran with its own branch since 2006 – initially specialising in ceramics and heavy clay and now serving all the Group’s business units. It is equipped to provide customers with close support right from the design stage and throughout the entire working life of the machine or plant.
Completing the picture are total quality control systems, operating at ultra-high speeds directly on the line.
Having grown enormously since its first edition (held in 1994), Iran Food + Bev Tec is a fair of growing strategic importance to Sacmi. In the last two years, imports of technology associated with the food, beverage & packaging sectors rose by an average of 84%, a trend that, according to experts, will continue over the coming years.
