TEI Rock Drills is pleased to have completed their seventh Bauma exhibition this past week in Munich Germany. As anyone who has attended a Bauma can attest, there is nothing like it in the world. This year was no different breaking attendance records for visitors and exhibitors. A total of 700,000 people descended on Munich for one week to experience the world’s largest construction and mining expo.
It is difficult to stand out during Bauma and TEI did our best to present our American made drifters and drilling equipment. The process starts in January with the Bauma Media Event to introduce TEI to all of the world’s construction and mining magazines. New this year during the media event was the Bauma Open Innovation Platform in which TEI was first company to take advantage of this opportunity. The Open Platform allows over 3 million people to contribute ideas on TEI products. If you have not done so already you can check out this amazing innovation at this link https://openinnovation.bauma.de/TEIRockDrills/DrillAll lots of interesting ideas from around the world. One advantage of participating the Open Platform is that TEI was featured on the Bauma home page throughout the expo, keeping our face in front of all attendees.
During the expo the TEI Rock Drills stand was very busy from early until late in the day. We were honored to have every one of our distributors working the TEI stand. There was Skelair from England, DDE from South Africa, GSS Titan from Central America, IMOCOM from Colombia, Autana from Chile, Ougan from China, Betongakuten from Sweden, STM from Southern Asia and Champion Equipment from the United States. There were many interesting conversations in many languages in the TEI stand. As TEI moves over the 50% mark in exporting we value the help and support of our distributors and valued this time together.
On display during the Bauma were the TE160 HEX, TE260HT, TE360, TE560 and TE1000 drifters along with a Brokk 400D sporting the famous HEM excavator drill from TEI. There were also two drills in the Brokk stand at Bauma, as always we are glad to have this relationship with Brokk around the world to supply drills on their limited access remote carriers. The Bauma is important to TEI in order to show the world that some of the best drifters drilling equipment in the world come from Montrose, Colorado USA.
We hope to see everyone again at Bauma 2019 again in Munich. We will again have our great display of TEI equipment, our famous hospitality and music, and most importantly a warm place to get away from the craziness that is Bauma to relax and speak English
