After successful year 2015 of our daughter company BMT USA, when we inter alia succeeded to further significantly increase the numbers of devices sold in the USA and Canada and to obtain new significant references, the interest in our devices continues even this year. The total sales for the last year exceeded 200 steam sterilizers manufactured in Brno or in BMT USA in Monroe, WA and several hundred pieces of driers and incubators.
The exhibition held in Pittcon, Atlanta in March confirmed permanent increase of interest of clients from laboratories in our driers and incubators and that is why we expected with close attention even the reactions of clients at the Interphex exhibition in New York, which is the leading USA exhibition in the field of pharmaceutical industry and special and demanding laboratory applications.
This year, the exhibition has been traditionally held in the exhibition complex Jacob Jarvis Center on 26 – 28 April and the exhibition area has increase in approximately 10 % compared to the previous year.
The stand of BMT USA presented again the FRIOCELL® EVO 222 with an illuminated shelf, VENTICELL® 22 and new large-area graphic panels with an overview of our news. The central location on the panel took the new type of steam sterilizer manufactured in the BMT USA, Combi-Pro, which offers a unique combination – in a pressure chamber manufactured in Brno – of possible selection of any of the three usual methods of steam sterilization in one sterilizer – using the mix of saturated steam, mix of pressure air and saturated steam using a powerful fan in the chamber (Steam-Air-Mix) and overheated water with the temperature of 121 °C. Using this device, the clients obtains e.g. the possibility of optimal testing of new products and preparations in laboratory conditions, he can compare results reached during various methods of sterilization and he can prepare an ideal sterilization program for consequent serial production in this way. The first device of this type has already been supplied to a client and other two projects are under negotiations at the moment.
It was also a pleasure to meet e.g. the employees of the company Pfizer, who really appreciated the steam sterilizer supplied by our company and they stated for the sterilizer to be the most reliable device in their production line.
During the exhibition we have also had an opportunity to meet our current and potential clients as well as our dealers from individual regions of the USA and Canada. Even Mr. Benedikt Koller, Export Manager of MMM GmbH came to visit us for one day.
During the exhibition we were satisfied with the number of visitors and level of negotiations regarding the orders being prepared. Mr. Scott Noteboom, Director of BMT USA, and his colleagues were really satisfied. Undoubtedly, their satisfaction was also supported by our traditional and fragrant chocolate cookies for our guests. We were visited by clients from the USA and Canada as well as by interesting dealers from South Korea, Mexico, Puerto Rico and Argentina.
