From 1 August 2018, Antech Industrial Technologies of Bnei Dror, appointed as the new representative, will be the Sumitomo (SHI) Demag’s local representative for application consulting, sales and service. Antech Industrial Technologies, established in 2007, is based in about 30 kilometers north of Tel Aviv. A proven expert in injection moulding technology and well connected in this market in Israel, Alon Navesh the Managing Director, who is an experienced plastic engineer and is familiar with the needs and requirements of Israel’s plastics processors.
The driving forces behind the increasing investment by (SHI) Demag in efficient injection moulding processes is based on the insufficient profitability of the industry in Israel, which is struggling to react to the rising pressure.
CEO Gerd Liebig, CEO, Sumitomo (SHI) Demag, commented, “Over the past few years, we have seen a certain consolidation among plastics producers, but, at the same time, there is an increasing demand for energy- and production-efficient solutions. As a machine manufacturer catering to growth markets, we consider services such as professional application consulting and fast troubleshooting as essential. Antech Industrial Technologies can deliver on both counts, and we are delighted to welcome the company as our new partner in Israel.”
According to Navesh believes that high-end technology as well as reducing prices by optimizing production efficiency is essential in this situation. Waste scrap reduction, short cycle times and extended maintenance intervals are on the top of the list. He has identified growth potential for all-electric machines of the IntElect Series from Sumitomo (SHI) Demag in combination with smart automated pick-and-place solutions. The versatile and efficient Systec Servo machine is the perfect all-rounder for the variety of applications that need to be included in the consumer goods segment.
