WEILBURGER Graphics GmbH – which is located in the Franconian Gerhardshofen - can look back on an exceedingly successful drupa presence. Customers, sales partners and potential buyers from more than 75 countries came from 03 until 16 May to the booth of the varnish, ink and adhesive specialist in hall 6 in order to inform about the extensive product range. After Europe the regions Arabia, Middle East, Africa, followed by Asia and South America were best represented. The demands covered the whole product range of WEILBURGER Graphics. Besides the qualitatively high standard products the interests in special varnishes, inks and adhesives especially for packaging printing was tremendously high. According to application technologies there was great demands on new and established products for the offset printing as well as on SENOSCREEN screen printing lacquers (especially from the Near East), on new SENOFLEX product series for inks and varnishes which was successfully established in the market and on SENOBOND film laminating and folding box adhesives.
An increasing strong interest was also in low-migration dispersion coatings and UV lacquers. Much to their surprise from regions in which these high demands are not given due to missing law regulations for food conform packaging.
Besides the common costumer events in the evenings another highlight was the dealer and partner evening on the booth of WEILBURGER Graphics. The booth was very well attended and the company invited to a common light dinner in a relaxed atmosphere. For amusement there was a special for the whole drupa engaged magician and shell game artist. Also the whole owner family Grebe was on the site and visited WEILBURGER Graphics.
Günter Korbacher, managing director of WEILBURGER Graphics, a member of the GREBE Group regarding the drupa presence: “Also our fifth drupa participation was an outstanding success. Each time we are very pleased to realize in the frame of a fair how well-known our company is on the international market and how high the confidence from our customers and partners is in our products. We cannot understand the general complains of many drupa exhibitors about falling visitor attendance. Our booth was extremely well visited on each fair day and the rate of potential new contacts was also this year enormously. Due to the international high reception during this year’ drupa we are convinced that we can advance with our great team of employees, our strong sales partners and our extensive product range and I am looking forward to the next drupa.”
For customers and prospective buyers WEILBURGER Graphics has prepared packaging with the support of STI Group, D.&W. Flexo-Manufaktur, Merck KGaA, Smurfit Kappa and Mayr Melnhof which was filled with diverse give aways.
