The leader in the purchase and sale of used machinery for the plastics and beverages industries, MachinePoint, and Syncro, the Italian manufacturer of ancillary equipment and control systems for extrusion lines, closed a partnership in 2017 so that both companies could expand the range of services they offer their customers.
Last February 2019, Stefano Nestri, Syncro’s Business Development Manager, visited MachinePoint’s headquarters in Spain to present the new Syncro-Maguire brand and expand the training of MachinePoint’s commercial team with the latest Syncro technologies and products.
Both companies hope to continue strengthening their relationship through collaborations at fairs, K 2019 the next fair where both companies will be present, and each with its own stand: MachinePoint Hall 12 Stand B44, Syncro Hall 10 Stand A62.
Syncro products are very interesting for MachinePoint customers, as they allow them to improve existing machinery and gain productivity, with lower investment than buying a new machine. In addition, Syncro equipment is known for its quality and easy integration with all types of machinery regardless of brand or age.
The Syntrol Plus equipment for example is designed to allow complete control of extrusion lines. It is an interesting option for producers whose control panels are obsolete or have broken down and cannot be repaired. In addition, Syncro products allow you to increase the hourly production of the lines to get the most out of the extrusion lines.
The MachinePoint – Syncro alliance allows Syncro to further promote their solutions thanks to the international presence of MachinePoint’s commercial team and their continuous contact with the extrusion market. MachinePoint will offer Syncro solutions to its customers at the same price as Syncro does.
The Syncro Group has made a number of acquisitions and strategic partnerships with the aim of expanding the range of products it offers to its customers.
Stefano Nestri comments, “What makes Syncro different from its competitors is that its ancillary equipment offer is unmatched in the market. A customer can find all necessary ancillary solutions from a single supplier recognized for the quality of its products. Syncro already works with the most recognized manufacturers in the market providing them with the auxiliary equipment they require for their projects. Machinery manufacturers are Syncro’s main clients at present. What we want with alliances such as MachinePoint, is to reach the final customer directly.
Our alliance with Maguire expands our current product range. The potential of this partnership is huge because it offers a unique solution of avant-garde control systems. At K 2019 we want to present a wide offer to a global audience. Both companies will have the opportunity to expand their sales into areas which are not their core business.
Marco Marchiorello, Director of MachinePoint’s Plastics Division, and forerunner of the alliance MachinePoint – Syncro comments, “Syncro equipment has been greatly accepted by MachinePoint´s sales team because of the synergies between the two businesses and advantages for our customers. In addition, we work with a wide range of sectors within the plastic industry, which provides Syncro with a good platform for presenting new products to markets where they do not have much of a presence. This, together with our international presence and commercial experience in markets outside Europe, makes us an interesting partner for companies with attractive products that want to export to new markets and industries.”
