GUANGZHOU, June 21, 2005 - With 2005 sales in China alone promising to be triple or even quadruple those of 2004, Maguire Asia has substantially increased its sales and service capabilities for Chinese customers, the company announced today at Chinaplas 2005 (Stand C 756). Chief among its initiatives are:
Driving this expansion is booming sales growth for the Maguire® Weigh Scale Blender, LPD™ vacuum dryer, Clear-Vu™ loading system, liquid color and additive pumps, and other equipment and related software, according to Hubert Nerlich, managing director of Maguire Asia. "Maguire technology enables plastics processors to save on operating costs and increase productivity while meeting stringent requirements for product quality and consistency," Nerlich said. "The dosing precision of our gravimetric blenders has provided a real advantage for Chinese manufacturers of products as widely different as tiny electronic connectors and high volume packaging film, and our fundamentally new vacuum dryer has begun to replace
