"Magnetbau Schramme is a long-time exhibitor at PTC Asia, but this year's participation was the most successful yet," said Jens Preetz, director of marketing and sales at the German manufacturer of electromagnetic actuators. "Our participation in PTC ASIA helped us generate more than 10,000 contacts at our booth. The show is the perfect place to promote the brand name Schramme to a broad audience in China."
CeMAT ASIA celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2019 with the lead theme "Smart Logistics" and 800 exhibiting companies, among them big names such as ABB, Baoli, Dematic, Fanuc, Honeywell, Linde, SSI Schaefer, and Swisslog.

We had the largest booth at the show, which attracted many customers and helped us further develop our service localization."
