We showcased high-end wear-resistant casting products at this exhibition, attracting the attention of many domestic and foreign audiences on site. We had a different feeling about this year’s exhibition from previous ones, it was held in Tianjin for the first time. As a local enterprise, we are extremely proud to participate and showcase the strength of Tianjin enterprises at our doorstep.

In addition, we received old friends, and gained many new customers. From the first day of the exhibition, our booth reception had been very busy, and multiple cooperation intentions have been reached at the exhibition site.

We appreciate the high-quality visitors which translated to tangible results for us. Looking forward to the next China International Foundry Expo, let’s work together to promote the high-quality development of China’s casting industry.–Tianjin Lixinsheng New Material Technology Co., Ltd.

In the decades since entering Chinese market, Calderys has continuously expanded its scale and business. The company regards METAL CHINA as an important platform for brand and product promotion, and business negotiation. 

In 2023, it coincided with the independence of Calderys from France’s IMERYS Group and belongs to Platinum Company. After, it was strategically integrated with Harbison Walker International (HWI). Calderys China presented a new image at the expo.

Calderys China and S&B Bentonite (Chaoyang) jointly held the “Calderys Technology Day” and presented One Stop Shop Solution for foundry industry. All activities yielded fruitful results.

We hope to engage in more exchanges and cooperation with China Foundry Association in the future, using high-quality refractory materials and bentonite products and solutions to support the high-quality development of China’s foundry industry.–Calderys China Co., Ltd. and S&B Bentonite (Chaoyang) Co., Ltd.

This year is the 21st China International Foundry Expo, and also the 21st time that Sinto Group has participated. The expo was professionally robust with rich portfolio. The international level of visitors significantly improved, and it really reflects its position as a “wind vane” of the industry.

Through participating in METAL CHINA, we not only showcased the advanced foundry equipment, processes, and high-quality service concepts, but also reached our global customers. We hope under the leadership of China Foundry Association, METAL CHINA will become better in the future.

China International Foundry Expo (METAL CHINA), created by China Foundry Association, has a development history of 37 years and is at a world-class level in terms of exhibition scale, industry status, and internationalism. CBMM and CITIC Metal made their debut in 2023.

Although it was our first, the results exceeded expectations: we built relationships with more Chinese enterprises, and saw more opportunities. METAL CHINA provides an effective platform for our company to explore the Chinese market. 

The Chinese foundry market is vast, and is also the prospects for cooperation between China and Brazil. We attach great importance to the Chinese market and hope to establish cooperation with more Chinese enterprises through the high-end platform in the future, achieve mutual benefit with complementary advantages. We look forward to the next exhibition.CBMM

METAL CHINA is the largest and most influential foundry industry exhibition in China, it comprehensively showcases the development level of China’s high-end castings, reflects the overall strength of China’s foundry industry, and proves to the world that China’s casting industry has grown from strength-to-strength.

High Praise From International Buyers

We got a lot of information and many supplier for our business from METAL CHINA 2023. There were a lot of factories and agents with steel raw materials we are finding. Hoping to join in the next event.–Thailand Visitors

We have achieved our goals as expected. China has rapidly developed in recent years. During the last three years, although there were signs of decline in the manufacturing industry, it provided more space for high-end enterprises to rise through industry integration.

Technically, the independently developed products in China’s foundry industry have emerged at a fast pace and low cost, which has better stabilised China’s position as a leading foundry nation. At the same time, the strong demand for new products and processes from various foundry enterprises garnered more global attention to the Chinese market.–Japan Visitors

We achieved all the goals we had set out. Overall an eye opening experience I think. We’re in the process of negotiating some deals, mostly for raw materials, but there’s some for machinery as well. Thank you for the top notch service.–Vietnam Buyers
