Mayor of Ankara on Rasim Makina Stand at TurkeyBuild Trade Fair 2012


18. June 2012

The TurkeyBuild trade fair in Istanbul is the largest exhibition for the construction sector in Turkey and was held for the 35th time this year from 2nd to 5th May. Around 1000 international exhibitors presented the latest products, technologies and innovations of the industry in an area of 80,000 m2. The trade fair location of Istanbul is well regarded as the pivot and hub for the markets in the Balkan countries, North Africa, the CIS, and the Near and Middle East.
Rasim Makina, the company that is the Probst agent for Turkey, attended the trade fair this year for the first time in the Construction Machinery and Hand Tools exhibition area. The trade fair stand of approx. 30 m2 presented the VM 401 installation machine and the POWERPLAN PP screeding machine on large-size partition walls.
The following were also exhibited: HVZ-uni hydraulic installation clamp, SPEEDY vacuum manual installation device, VACUUM-HANDY VH, block cutters AL as well as other professional tools from the area of “little aids”.
In addition, Probst product videos on an endless loop could be seen on a flat screen.
One of the trade fair highlights on the Rasim Makina stand was doubtless the visit of Melih Gökçek, the Mayor of Ankara. He stayed at the trade fair stand for around 20 minutes, appeared extremely interested, and watched videos about the Probst installation machines.
He subsequently invited Rasim Makina to Ankara to give a product demonstration of Probst equipment to the building authority and city administration.
