US - Santrev have pushed on with their global expansion by exhibiting in North America for the first time at the International Production and Processing Expo in Atlanta, Georgia.
The expo, now in its 65th year, played host to South American Santrev representatives Aralli Villanueva and Jason Kelly as well as Santrev Director Luke Trevanion, Australian Business Development Manager Deran Weale, Australian Project Manager Chris Bishop and Technical Veterinarian Support with Dr Stephen McGoldrick.
The results look promising, with Santrev Director Luke Trevanion fielding queries from a high volume of potential international clients, building on their already solid reputation as poultry house construction specialists. "We encountered huge support and interest from around the globe, particularly South America, Africa and the South Pacific, which is a great sign that the Santrev name is out there," says Mr Trevanion. In particular interest for visitors was Santrevs’ vast experience in design and management support to clients to maximize efficiency of broiler and breeder operations.
The IPPE13 expo was just one of the many international ventures Santrev will be undergoing in 2013. "In order to support our international clients over the coming months, we have multiple trips arranged to engage with clients and design tailor made solutions to maximise profits their profits," says Mr Trevanion. Santrev are also highly committed to their home grown clients as well, with many jobs on the ground in Queensland, South Australia, New South Wales and Victoria under way in 2013.
The Atlanta trip has led to many new clients liaising with Santrev and multiple opportunities being sourced in North America. Santrev was particularly delighted that amongst other avid international visitors, key Australian representatives Kevin Mcbain, CEO of Inghams and John Elks, Owner and Director of Woodlands, made the trip to Atlanta and took time to catch up with the Santrev team. Management at Santrev take a very hands-on approach to each job, and eagerly appreciate communication with former clients.
