As such, iMT has gathered established companies with sought-after capabilities that meet buyers' cost-efficiency and high engineering quality requirements,” said Mr Gerd Keim, President of Kaigo Co., Ltd.

Commenting on iMT Taiwan's timely staging, Mr Keim added that, “Taiwan has long been a major contributor to the world's metal and steel industries. The country's competitive advantage in having a broad raw materials backyard supported by active government's plans to expand its metal industries' facilities, technological inventions through intensive research and skilled labour specialists as well as economic incentives to attract foreign investments and boost exports all pave for sound reasons to synergize all that Taiwan has to offer and present them in one dynamic business platform.” As such, business leaders, manufacturers and suppliers who want to introduce superior products with trusted quality can expect to meet potential local partners that are well in-tuned with their expectations and in tandem identify foreign companies whose products or machines are made with Taiwanese's quality expectations in mind to enhance their production strength.

Hence, over the three days exhibition, visitors will meet Chung Hung Steel, Chiu Ta Hydraulic Machine, Jing Duann Machinery Industrial, Advanced International Multitech, KTR TAIWAN, Taiwan Sinton Machinery and others who are among the leading Taiwanese companies that have consistently performed on par with international players and progressively successful in reaching better industry quality standards, thus gaining higher credibility for Taiwan-produced metal products. International companies coming from countries with strong metal technology portfolio include DYNACAST, VSM AG- Grinding and Polishing, PT Monokem Surya, Oxford Instruments, Directorate of Industrial Metal Base Material, who recognizes Taiwan's key role in shaping the region's onwards market growth and global metal industry development.

Kaigo Co, Ltd's valuable experience in attracting business ventures and promoting trade in Taiwan via numerous industry-pioneering trade exhibitions as well as its in-depth understanding of Taiwan's conducive business environment assures IMT to be a meaningful event that opens buyers to have exclusive business meetings with key decision makers, identify newly-launched products made available first only at iMT, procure the latest products in the market ahead of their competitors  and view exciting machinery demonstrations first-hand  across the 4550 sqm exhibition floor space.
