The main spare parts fair Automechanika 2022 was held in Frankfurt; we were present with our spare parts programme, i.e., the aftermarket. This segment is gaining importance in Hidria’s sales programme; it has been recording a significant growth in sales in the last two years and has very promising plans for the future.
After the years of epidemic break, we were again present at the Automechanika fair in Frankfurt. Our team attracted extraordinary attention from existing and potential new customers from all continents of the world. Yet, due to the exceptional growth of orders for Original Equipment (OE) parts, the sales team is facing major challenges at the production facility in Tolmin. Therefore, we are postponing the deliveries for some large customers who wish to distribute our spare parts, to autumn next year.
Nevertheless, in the five days of the fair we were happy to have genuine personal contact with all key customers which resulted in an abundance of new orders. It was also crucial to strengthen the ties and exchange market information with our sales agents who help us with local support in the market.
