What they said about Scanautomatic 2016

Quotes from exhibitors at Scanautomatic 2016

Fredrik Tancred, MD, B&R Industriautomation

“We began Scanautomatic with a flying start. We had an unusually large number of visits. Even so, we were surprised by the amount of leads we’d got by the end of the first day. We supply our own-developed and own-made control systems and automation solutions for all industries. The fair proved to be an effective way of meeting existing customers and accessing new, potential customers.”



Krister Karlsson, MD, Miltronic Sweden

“This year’s fair’s been incredibly good – we doubled the number of leads compared with 2012! We’re the world leader with our Ölflex brand of high-flexibility machine cables for both power and signal transmission. We made lots of interesting contacts at this year’s fair and we’re satisfied with our own efforts and the way the fair’s developed overall.”



Vladimir Vujic, Sales Manager, Gycom Nordic

“We sell components and services to machine builders and companies that make power distribution cabinets. Since we weren’t here last time, we’re trying to find the customers we missed then. And find new ones, of course. And we hope we’ve succeeded.”



Tommy Halvorsen, Sales Manager, CEJN Norden

“We just love the fair in Gothenburg! We see it as a flagship event, the best industrial fair overall. Our specialty is quick couplings and conduit components for compressed air, hydraulics and liquids. The industry’s going in the right direction; we experienced an all-time high in September; it’s been all go for us here at the fair.”



Eva Lindström, State Secretary to the Minister of Enterprise and Innovation

“It’s been great to be able to come here, see what’s going on and check out all that’s new and interesting. I think what I’ve seen here today is in line with the Government’s strategy, which as Minister of Enterprise and Innovation, Mikael Damberg, usually says ‘is very much a matter of bringing industry into the drawing room’. But it’s also about focusing on digitisation and the transformation that it entails.”

And the visitors said

Ulf Ekman (Swedec, Sales)

“I’m here to meet new contacts and to get some inspiration. I also want to learn new things; you can never know everything there is to know in this business.”


Bengt Larsson (Nitator Stainless Steel AB, MD)

“There are lots of interesting things here. We’ve actually found a pickling bath for the workshop we are going to set up.”


Farshid Farej (Hunter Douglas Assembly Automation AB, Programmer)

“I’m here primarily to find suppliers, mainly in motor management. I’ve found a lot of ‘possibles’ and the fair has definitely got me interested.”


Anders Åström (AGA Gas AB, Sales)

“I’m mainly interested in gas analysis instruments. But I’ve found a lot of new stuff that seems interesting and I can definitely see myself spending money on it. I’ve also made a lot of good, new contacts.”


Anders Englund (Sterners Specialfabrik AB, Purchasing)

“The fair is good if you have an idea that you want to turn into reality, or if you have a problem you need to solve.”


Elvind Ottosson (Elpro Alingsås AB, MD)

“The best thing about the fair is the diversity. Most makes are on show, and all the new stuff is often shown here first. On top of which, the fair is very important for establishing new contacts and meeting customers.”


Hanna Eriksson (AB Sandvik Coromant, Purchasing)

“We meet our suppliers here because many of the ones we already use are available here. And it’s enjoyable meeting here at the fair.”
