On 12-14 September, the Benelux based supplier and manufacturer of concrete sawing, drilling and surface preparation machinery and consumables, Adamas, ran an ‘open house’ for its domestic customers. PDi’s Andrei Bushmarin reports on the event.
Apart from being an effective marketing tool, ‘open houses’ are integral part of supplier-customer relations. Adamas proved it once again by inviting some 100 sawing and drilling contractors from Benelux to its headquarters cum manufacturing facilities in Maasdijk, Holland for demonstration and training sessions. The equipment on display included the latest dry coring system for up to 250mm holes in reinforced concrete, the new laser welded V-Max RAPIDO drill bits, designed and manufactured at the Adamas plant in Belgium, a three speed 75HP Tier 4 diesel floor saw from Lissmac, and a complete Pentruder HF range of drilling, cutting and wire sawing machines. The dry coring system and V-Max drill bits proved to be the event’s main attractions.
A special demonstration area was designated for surface preparation equipment, with special vacuum cleaners provided to remove dust. On the last day of the event, Adamas staff were supported by the product managers of Fischer Fixings and Lissmac Maschinenbau companies. The outside area was also used for practical one day training sessions in concrete sawing and drilling techniques. By arranging these sessions, Adamas tries to address the issue of the lack of work experience that young operators suffer from. The Dutch company offers training courses in wet and dry core drilling, hand held sawing, wall and floor sawing. Apart from demonstrations and trainings, Adamas used the event to present its new corporate images and logos. The next rendezvous between Adamas and its clients will take place at Bauma 2019 in Hall A1, where Adamas is going to celebrate its 40th anniversary.
