More than 50,000 visitors to the Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Exhibition (AREX) 2012 held in Bangalore recently had an opportunity to view the products and services provided by Patton (NZ) Limited and its associate companies in India and other parts of the world.
The exhibition, held under the theme, ‘For a Greener Tomorrow’ from February 23 to 25, 2012, enabled Patton Refrigeration India to display its entire product range including evaporators, condensing units and other products and services.
Auckland based Patton Global chief executive Sameer Handa, who was present at the exhibition, said that Embraco and Dorin compressors as well as Henry and Mueller products were also on display.
“We exhibited a wide range of instruments from four of our US suppliers including Fieldpiece, Uniweld, Supco, and Appion. Products of our private brand ‘Synergy’ were a big draw with our channel partners,” he said.
According to Mr Handa, the visitors were mainly original equipment manufacturers, distributors and dealers in heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and refrigeration industry largely from South India.
“We had our team of sales and marketing people at the booth and people from Henry, Dorin, Fieldpiece, Uniweld, and Patton Aero were also present. Our group chairman Paul Smart was present on the last day to interact with the team as well as the visitors,” he said.
Billed as South Asia’s biggest show of its type, ACREX is held every year in one of the three main centres in India, namely Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore.
This year’s event attracted 400 exhibitors from 25 countries and more than 50,000 visitors. The programme included workshops and seminars.
