India meets DEECOM® at PLASTINDIA 2018

Posted on 30 April 2018

February 2018 and the Longworth team has been visiting Ahmedabad in Gujarat to launch DEECOM® to India at the PLASTINDIA 2018 exhibition, which was very well attended over 6 days.

As with our last few experiences of overseas exhibiting, we were glad to be supported and invited to take a stand on the British delegation pavilion, impeccably arranged by the British Plastics Federation (BPF). Longworth are proud members of the BPF and gratefully received their support with event arrangements, accommodation and travel whilst in India. Our team met many new contacts, potential agents and keen customer leads from India and beyond.



PLASTINDIA 2018 proudly claims to be the most significant exhibition on plastics across the globe and in 2018 it focuses on ‘two distinct and critical facets’

1. The future of the plastics industry
2. The future of humankind itself and the emerging segments (like composites) that shall us in creating better equipped human beings
Team Longworth received a lot of interest, made many new contacts and returned to the UK with lots to follow up on for the short, medium and long term.
Chairman John Norris comments’ “We believe that India is an exciting market in terms of the polymer industry and the safe and effective removal of plastic waste. India needs DEECOM® for its ability to deliver improved cleaning at a lower cost with less damage to the environment in order to see longer life cycles for their components across a multitude of sectors.”

We left India with a lot of new contacts The team is now looking forward to Plastimagen 2017 in Mexico this November as we take DEECOM® global.
