Leioa, February 19th, 2019.- The Spanish Association of Manufacturers-Exporters of Agricultural Machinery and its Components (AGRAGEX) will attend the latest edition of SIMA, the worldwide meeting point of agricultural and animal farming suppliers, that will be held in Paris (France), from the 24th to the 28th of February.
The sectors of agricultural machinery, irrigation systems and storage (post-harvest) will be specially represented in this event. The 2017 edition, in which 1,800 exhibitors from more than 42 countries participated, was visited by more than 232,000 professionals from up to 135 countries.
In SIMA 2019 seven Spanish companies will be present, along with AGRAGEX (hall 5A, stand G046), which will showcase their innovative equipment for the agricultural professionals: Arcusin (hall 5B, stand C022); Serrat Trituradoras (hall 5A, stand C095); Agrator (hall 5A, stand C062); Moresil (hall 5B, stand E099); Aguirre Maquinaria Agrícola (hall 6, stand H027); RKD (hall 5A; stand A051); and Prado Silos (hall 6, stand A087). The space taken by them will be more than 800 metres.
The main objective set by the Association with its presence is to maintain and improve the presence of its companies in the French market, the main importer of our products.
“The French market keeps being the most important for our Association, so SIMA is one of the mandatory events for many of our associates. We also hope to be visited by professionals from nearby and French-speaking countries in general”, states the foreign trade technician from AGRAGEX, Juan Bernuy.
“Our companies manufacture, with European technology, strong equipment with affordable prices, and more importantly, adapted to every kind of market”, says. “Moreover, they have the availability and capacity to produce small series, which cannot be done by the big multinational companies”.
For that reason, the equipment developed specifically for the needs of the French farmer by the Spanish companies get a lot of attention by the visitors at SIMA. “From all of them, the equipments for soil preparation, fertilization, seed drilling, machinery for the fruit trees, olive harvesters, atomizers and pulverisation equipment”, enumerates Bernuy. “About irrigation, it is worth mentioning that the deeply rooted ‘water culture’ of Spain has put its companies on top of the worldwide technology for the management and conservation of this natural resource”.
RKD Irrigación SL, the main manufacturer of irrigation pivots of Spain, is one of the companies that will go with AGRAGEX to Paris. Its sales director, Raúl Monje, says that “we will participate again in SIMA with our exporting mentality, trying to get feedback about the new campaign of irrigation from French and other countries’ distributors and also with the intention of contacting potential new customers and distributors”.
