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.
Asian Paper, the only proven, dedicated exhibition and event for the pulp and paper industry in South-East Asia , will be held once again in Bangkok 23-25 April 2014.
Asian Paper 2012, also held in Bangkok, was a great success with 4,528 visitors from 60 countries – an increase of over 25% from the 2010 event – reinforcing the fact that the pulp and paper industry in Asia continues to be of major importance to the global pulp and paper industry.
South-East Asia continues to be seen by forecasters and experts as the “engine of growth” for the worldwide pulp and paper industry, with growth rates in packaging estimated at around 4.5%, tissue at 5.3% and graphic papers at around 3.8%.
Building on the success of the 2012 event, Asian Paper 2014 is set to be even bigger and better with important industry regional producers present at the show including APP and APRIL, as well as a whole host of international suppliers, including ABK, Garuda Engineering Technologies, Dechangyu Paper Machinery Manufacturer, Kadant Lamort and Lorentzen & Wettre. The show also boasts of the France, Finland and CPPI pavilions, as well as new pavilions for India and Singapore.
In full support of global interest in the thriving South-East Asian area – and as well as the exhibition – Asian Paper also provides satellite events giving visitors and delegates a host of great opportunities to learn and fully engage with the industry in the region. These events include:
Hosted Buyer Programme
This new Asian Paper initiative will invite and host an exclusive number of senior level decision-making buyers for a two -night complimentary hotel stay at the Asian Paper official hotel for visiting the most strategic pulp, paper and board industrial event in Asia.
Business Matching Programme
The business matching programme is another new initiative from Asian Paper, which is capturing many exhibitors’ attention. Simply put, this is a mechanism where pre-registered visitors are matched with exhibitors prior to the start of the show, thereby ensuring that the exhibitors who opt in for this programme will benefit fully upon meeting their right matches during the show.
Senior Management Symposium (SMS)
The SMS will address important issues both in the region and across the globe, and will have a speaker list of high-level CEOs and executives from the leading companies in the region. This symposium is the perfect opportunity to find out what is happening in the region, as well as the rest of the pulp and paper world.
New Applied Technology Conference (NAT)
If the very latest in technology is within your area, the NAT will look at state-of-the-art equipment that is revolutionising the industry in terms of energy savings and improvements in quality. Further, the exhibition floor will enable visitors to see a lot of that new technology in action.
Another highlight of Asian Paper 2014 is the mill visit, which is an excellent opportunity to see new technology in action on- site at Thailand’s world class paper making facilities.
