Alapala win the GRAPAS Innovation 2015 first prize award in Cologne

On June 11 2015,  the GRAPAS Innovation Award winners were announced at FIAAP/VICTAM/GRAPAS COLOGNE 2015. Exhibitors could enter their products and services in three different categories; the Aquafeed Innovation Award, the FIAAP Animal Nutrition Award and the GRAPAS Innovation Award. The Innovation awards were to be given to the most innovative and economically beneficial equipment, process or service for the miller as part of another successful GRAPAS Conference and Awards 2015.

Alapala was nominated from the category, ‘Milling Industry’  and won first place for innovation for its roller-mill Similago II launched in April 2013. Similago II redefined grinding technology and has become a symbol of power, passing all the details meticulously reviewed by an independent judging panel.

The Grapas Award was received by Sales Director Mr Stefano Soldi and Area Sales Manager Mr Cagdas Ingin on behalf of the Alapala Group.

Email sent to all IMD companies.

Hello All,

I have taken this opportunity to contact each and everyone personally to remind you, if not inform you, of the benefits of submitting an equipment guide into IMD 2012/13.

The ‘Equipment Guides’ section offers you a platform on which to promote your most valuable products. It is a fantastic tool for guaranteeing an entire page devoted to your company in IMD and enhancing your exposure far beyond your competitors. Don’t forget that IMD has an already impressive circulation, which will be increased this year to meet a growing demand. This means that your completed equipment guide would reach circa 8000 readers in print and be viewed by 290,000 (approx.) readers online from all across the globe.

The beauty of these guides is that for you they are available completely FREE-OF-CHARGE, so it would be a shame to miss out! However there are ways in which you can add value to your guides that are available for a small fee. For £150 you can add product photos and a logo to your guide, which will not only stand out amongst the other guides, but will also give customers a clear indication of your product features. Take a look at the examples of last year’s guides below.

Submitting a guide is easy, all you need to do is;

– email me asking specifying which template (s) you require
– fill your product details into the appropriate templates
– save it as your company name
– send it back to me
– attach good sized jpeg’s of product pictures and company logo (£150)

Our design team will do the rest!

The categories in this year’s guide are: Cleaning, Colour Sorting, Coolers & Driers, Drop Forged Chain & Components, Dust Filtration, Elevator Buckets, Extruders & Expanders, Hammermills, Mixers & Grinders, Packaging, Pellet Press, Rollermills, Sieving & Sifting, Storage and Weighing & Scales.

If you have any queries or require assistance in completing your guides please feel free to contact me. But act now to avoid deadline disappointment!

I know that our representatives who attended had a great time meeting all of you and hopefully those who weren’t registered when we met them will be filling in their forms now!

The IMD office has been a little quiet this week with many of us visiting Cereals 2012, but by no means did that prevent us from continuing the important work that has been going on behind the scenes. I have again managed get in touch with most of you in between other jobs just to catch up and make sure that you are getting the most out of your IMD listings.

If you wish to enhance your listing and we haven’t already made contact please feel free to get in touch simply by clicking my name at the bottom of this post.

Having said that, once again your response has been fantastic and I have enjoyed speaking to so many of you this week and finding the best ways to enhance your profile with IMD. With that in mind I would like to remind those of you that already have or who would like to participate in our equipment guides section please treat it as a matter of urgency and contact me as time is running out and it would be a shame for you to miss the opportunity.

Remember, the equipment guide is a great opportunity for you to advertise some of your products and guarantee an entire page in the directory devoted to your company. If any manufacturers would like to learn more about equipment guides please do not hesitate to email me, I have attached some samples below to give you a taster of what you could, but shouldn’t be missing out on!

Lastly I would like to inform you that I have managed to extend the deadline one last time for you to check your details, add to your listings and send in your equipment guides. The final deadline for the printed International Milling Directory 2012/13 is June 22, 2012.

I wish you all a very pleasant weekend!
