28|04 Intermat 2015, successful again
Our teams had the pleasure of welcoming a large number of visitors from some 80 countries at the 2200-m2 FAYAT booth, where around a hundred equipments were on display.
The 2015 edition of the Intermat fair has been more than satisfactory: 183,000 admissions - a third of them foreign visitors - and 1,410 exhibiting companies (+5% against 2012).
This time round, Fayat Road Equipment had around 100 machines on display. Innovation took pride of place, including some world-firsts. Lightweight equipment and large compactors for Bomag, multispray bars or a mobile test bench for Breining, RF 160 and 6-tonne mixer for Marini-Ermont, New Pilot simulator for Secmair, Packliner compact unit for SAE, and the Magnum Plus Titanium roadsweeper for Scarab… Clients and prospective customers were quick to acknowledge the relevance of the responses offered by our design teams to the constraints they are now facing (higher safety requirements, control over costs and environmental impact, ergonomic improvements, etc.).
It is also worth mentioning that FAYAT was a winner once again at the Innovation Awards: the RF 160 Neo designed by Marini-Ermont won a bronze medal. This hyper-transferable recycling continuous asphalt plant produces high-quality asphalt at low cost (80 to 160 tph). The only plant of its kind in the world, it boasts numerous technological innovations whilst limiting its environmental impact.
Maryvonne Lanoë, Exhibition Manager: "INTERMAT 2015 has been a new stepping stone in the expected international upturn. The overall opinion has been that the visitors were very well attuned to the event and showed good potential in terms of projects, resulting in a dynamic fair that has boosted the confidence of all players in the sector."
