Ambitious SPS stand reaps rewards

Invertek’s attendance at SPS IPC Drives in Nuremburg last month was its most ambitious to date, specifically designed to reflect the company’s growing reputation as a leading global player.

SPS is widely recognised as the main event in the industry’s calendar - the 2013 show was visited by a record breaking 60,027 visitors, keen to find out about the latest innovations in drives and automation from 1622 global exhibitors.

Sales and Marketing Director, Rhydian Welson, says, “SPS provides an unrivalled opportunity to showcase all aspects of Invertek’s motor control capabilities. We welcomed visitors from more than 28 countries which resulted in a number of high calibre enquiries, with almost a quarter coming from German companies.

“All areas of our stand performed well this year and we received significant volumes of enquiries about Optidrive P2 and E2, as well as our newest product, the HVAC Eco.”

Invertek’s 138 sq mtr SPS stand provided the perfect platform to showcase the latest innovations from its R&D department - all developed with the company’s ‘ease of use’ ethos to ensure global accessibility. The independently owned company’s products are sold in more than 80 countries worldwide and a recent strategic international marketing drive has significantly raised Invertek’s global brand profile, as Rhydian explains; 

“Increased awareness of the Invertek brand was evidenced by both the volume of visitors we welcomed to the stand, and the calibre of enquiries we received. We have extremely ambitious growth targets for the next five years and our annual attendance at SPS plays a vital role in our sales and marketing activities.”
