Following the successful SYMOP 2013 Paper Seminar in Jakarta and Surabaya, the French SYMOP Paper group is pleased to be back in Indonesia at ASIAN PAPER JAKARTA 2015 to reinforce relationships with the influential and important players in Indonesia.
France is in the European Economic Community, and is an important exporter of machinery for paper and board industries. The French Machinery Manufacturers for paper and board industries have established a firm foothold in international markets for many years. More than one hundred countries have chosen them as their partner to whom they export 80 percent of their national production.
They are a dynamic group of companies, whose aim is the promotion of French machines and French companies. Created years ago as a private professional Association SYMOP (French Association for manufacturing), it gathers 250 companies in 12 groups, including one on manufacturers of machinery and equipment for the paper and board industry. SYMOP nurtures the dynamism, professionalism, competence and creativity of the French member companies.
French companies have established and will continue to ensure a leadership position in the international paper and board industry. They are expanding in the paper and board markets with extremely targeted products and for industries requiring integrated manufacturing processes.
Employing more than 2,000 people with a continuously growing turnover, and backed by specialized research centres, the French manufacturers have dominant positions in their specialties. Most of them now hold significant share in world markets, due to the simultaneous implementation of technologically advanced machinery, and reliability and the services required in large-scale exporting and automation. Their success in these areas guarantees a productive future, and gives French machinery an advantage over the competition.
The specialized sectors of the French paper and board machinery industries are:
- Equipment for stock preparation, paper/board
- Board and paper machines and sections of machines
- Paper machine parts and elements for paper machines and ancillary circuits
- Laboratory equipment
In the context of strong international competition, French manufacturers have not gained this leading position in the market by chance: innovation, skills, machine quality, excellent customer service provided throughout the entire sales process, and a worldwide presence grants them the strong reputation and professionalism required to resolve market problems and meet market requirements.
The French machinery manufacturers for paper and board industries and their Association SYMOP are present in all the major events of the paper and board machinery industries. They also take part in the major specialised machinery exhibitions all over the world.
The active and regular presence in the foreign markets is clear proof of their strong commitment for the development of partnerships.
"We are excited by the many possibilities that Jakarta has to offer," said Mr. Gilles Gaubert, SYMOP, Trade Group and International Manager.
