Alexey Tolkach, Director SV TEK:

The seminar is an opportunity to gather in one place representatives of the supplier - Metso, equipment users, as well as students of the Zhytomyr Polytechnic University - future engineers. The main purpose of the event is to share the knowledge and experience of the equipment supplier company and receive feedback from customers, to hear their wishes and requirements.

      We see that customers understand how important it is to use quality services and original components. At the same time, customers are highly interested in financial matters. Therefore, we demonstrate with specific examples how, due to quality service and original spare parts, you can win and make big profits, increase equipment efficiency and optimize your production.

      We communicate the opinion that you should pay attention not only to the price of a particular part or service, but to calculate the cost spent per ton of manufactured products.

And in order to create a relaxed atmosphere and take a non-standard approach to such events, presentations and expert reports alternated with contests and quizzes with questions on professional topics.

Thus, the goal of the event was achieved in live communication: customers received consultations and got acquainted with informative presentations from leading experts and discussed current issues. And representatives of METSO and SV TEK received feedback from customers, which will allow for a more substantive response to demand and to establish business ties.
