Exapro was at the yearly RESALE 2008 trade fair in Karlrushe, Germany (23-25 of April 2008). This was the occasion to meet again some of their partners there and to discover futur collaborators, especially in the used machine-tools market.
It is over 10 000 visitors from 120 countries that each year visit 500 resellers offering second-hand machines.
The geographical situation as well as the proximity of the French and German markets help this fair to grow each year.
It was however clear that the Dollar markets were not active as before due to difficult exchange rates with the Euro. For example, India was present but not as eager to buy as the previous years.
The trade fair is very well organised in a modern hall just a few kilometers from the town center.
Exapro's partners all confirmed having sold at least a machine on the second day which proves the point of being there each year.
Exapro will indeed be back for the 15t edition in 2009.
