Every three years, one of the largest international trade shows for the construction and infrastructure sectors is staged in Paris. This year, the INTERMAT was held from 23 to 28 April 2018.

For the roughly 200,000 visitors, the 1500 exhibitors were able to showcase a wide range of equipment and solutions for the construction industry divided into four clusters of expertise  - earthmoving and demolition, road, minerals and foundations, the buildings and concrete sector and also lifting, handling and transportation - that covered the whole spectrum of building construction and civil engineering.

PFREUNDT GmbH was also among the exhibitors. On our stand in hall 5b, we placed the emphasis on our mobile weighing systems for wheel loaders and telescopic handlers that link to the PFREUNDT web portal. Considerable interest was shown in the telescopic handler scale WK60 series as there are far more telescopic handlers than wheel loaders in use in France. The WK60 is available in four basic variants and can be readily installed in all telescopic handlers, even retrospectively. Hence, our weighing technology can be used across all applications and sectors. The systems are calibratable in class Y(b). Thanks to state-of-the-art communication interfaces that provide for connections to printers, networks, data transmission by WLAN and also GPS positioning, it is always possible to know how much material is being moved - this saves time, lowers costs and improves operations. It is also possible to access the PFREUNDT web portal, ensuring that weighing data can be accessed anywhere and at any time. 

Our new French agency M+A Systèmes was also represented on a stand at the INTERMAT and our collaboration together kicked-off very successfully. "Because we were in the same hall, we were able to interact with ease. Visitors who expressed interest in our products were advised by either our personnel or by PFREUNDT personnel. We obtained orders for two weighing systems at the fair - the perfect start," explains Jean-Pierre Puiroux, the Director of M+A Systèmes. Heike Even, Area Sales Manager at PFREUNDT, was similarly impressed by the success achieved at the fair and is looking forward to the cooperation with M+A Systèmes.
