Halamid® Makes a Splash at VIV Europe

05 June 2014

FRANCE - The message brought this year to VIV Europe by universal disinfectant Halamid was all about how it is possible to thermofog the product as well as apply it by the more common method of pressure spraying.

To underline the message, a thermal fogging machine was displayed prominently on the front corner of the Halamid stand which stood out distinctly at one of the main entrances to Hall 10. Judging by the level of interest on the stand, it was a message which resonated with the industry.

Arno Schut, Halamid Technical Manager explained: “Most visitors were very interested to hear about an alternative to traditional fogging products which have significant safety drawbacks. Indeed, many people who already knew about the safety profile and good reputation of Halamid were pleasantly surprised to learn that it can also be applied by thermal nebulisation.”

Toby Heppenstall, General Manager of Axcentive, commented that he was very satisfied with the interest level.

He said: “Visitor traffic was high: the team hardly had a minute to sit down for the whole middle day. The stand was well positioned in the poultry hygiene section and the vast majority of visitors were in our target sector, as well as presenting a good international cross section. If we start one or two new motivated distributors from an exhibition like this, then it is a well worthwhile investment.”

The Halamid commercial team put across a message of safety, speed of turnaround and therefore cost-saving and the company hopes as a result to tempt more users to trial this method after the show.
