Quotes from CIMPS 2013

    This is the second time for our participation. We got a $1million order last year in the exhibition. We also achieved a lot this year, and got in touch with many potential clients, with big possible deals in the future. We also found that our competitors came as well, which made us not easily give up this exhibition. We are fully confident about this exhibition!

    As a key manufacturer in the line of heavy equipment in offshore, we take serious on this show. We exhibited the latest drilling platform, floating crane and pipe-laying vessel. Most of the visitors were attracted by our products. We hope we can expend our business upon this show.



    Under the circumstance of the present shipping industry, CIMPS-Europort & OTE assembled so many domestic shipyards displaying together, and organized Chinese top shipbuilding manufacture bases to exhibit! We saw many new products and techniques of the shipbuilding industry. For the show we gathered many colleagues to visit and collected a great deal of information, which is really worthwhile. We also participated in the forum held by DNV.
