From the perspective of promoting new product lines and meeting the industry, MACH 2018 was a major success for Guhring. The cutting tool manufacturer yielded lead generation that surpassed previous exhibitions with a high level of new business contacts collected. From a personnel perspective, MACH 2018 was the swansong exhibition for longstanding Managing Director Mike Dinsdale.
Mike Dinsdale has spent the last 39 years serving Guhring and the wider industry with distinction. On the penultimate day of the show, the MTA recognised this achievement by presenting Mike with a cake on the Guhring stand that said ‘with congratulations and thanks from the industry’. Presented by MTA President Geoff Bryant, who has also recently retired from Citizen, the presentation was an emotional occasion filled with tales of days gone by.
From a product perspective, the Guhring stand was filled with new products that were globally launched at EMO in 2017, many seen in the UK for the first time. Commenting on the show, Guhring National Sales Manager, Mr Dave Hudson said: “The show was excellent for us. We generated well over 500 sales leads”
