The comments of the Chief Executive officer of AO “Transpnevmatika” A.A. Kurochkin:
— AO “Transpnevmatika” took part in the exhibition “Innoprom” for the first time. We have presented the samples of new developed and produced with our factory technics that meets fully the modern requirements. Those are, in particular, brake systems for the high-speed electro trains those include brake discs and blocs. In addition, nowadays is observed the strong trend of applying on the railway transport of more ecological and comfortable in exploitation piston compressors without lubrication instead of oil-filled compressors and compressors with the lubrication. Our factory has engineered series of these assemblies, one of them also was presented at the exhibition.
All the afore-named items of AO “Transpnevmatika”’s production looked like worthy ones and aroused the great interest of the competitors and potential customers. The manufacturers of the rolling stock became interested in our hydraulic dampers – the brochures about them were in demand, many questions were asked. Anyway, I am sure, that we were not ashamed to present at “Innoprom” the industry of the Nizhniy Novgorod Region.
The action was very representative, with the great amount of participants and visitors from different countries. Very interesting were special-purpose national expositions of India, Japan, Italy, Germany, Korea. Participation in such actions is always interesting, cognitive and useful, because it enables to evaluate objective oneself among the competitors, to consolidate own positions in the world and domestic markets of manufacturers of equipment for railway transport, and even to solve in place some questions of the collaboration and of the work together with other factories. The participation in any exhibition is, firstly, a search of new business partners among the suppliers and the customers of production. I think that in this regard we will receive from the exhibition the great positive effect.
