Arburg announces Sopri as new trading partner in Morocco

Arburg sought a suitable trading partner, which would be able to offer even more effective support than was previously provided on an exclusive basis by its French subsidiary in Paris. That partner was found in Sopri: Already established in the plastics industry since 1978, and a well-known name throughout the country with regard to training and consulting, the Moroccan company has unique knowledge of the market. Sopri employs a staff of up to 12 employees in both of the above-mentioned sectors. According to the company, the service technicians who will work on its behalf in the future have not only completed their training directly at Arburg in Lossburg, but will also receive ongoing further training to ensure that they keep up with the latest technical developments. Customers can rely on the same level of service through Sopri everywhere in the country, from Agadir to Tangier and from Marrakesh to Oujda, which is also something quite unique for Morocco, says Arburg. Service, including the maintenance, commissioning and calibration of Allrounders, is just as much part of the programme as the supply of spare parts to customer from a central warehouse in Casablanca. The first joint appearance by Arburg S.A.S. and the trading partner Sopri took place at the Plast Expo from 19 - 22 June 2013 in Casablanca. According to Arburg, the company was the first European manufacturer to be represented with a machine at this trade fair. Visitors had the opportunity to see a vertical Allrounder 175 V for overmoulding inserts. Arburg offers one of the widest ranges of vertical machines in the industry, a segment that is very interesting for Morocco as cable overmoulding is significant in the local plastics processing industry.
