Exhibitor testimonials from StocExpo 2012
“StocExpo is a great event for Implico as a provider of IT solutions for optimising downstream processes. Every year this exhibition gives us the opportunity to meet our global customers from the fields of terminal management and service station replenishment. We can talk with long-standing business associates and tell potential customers about our innovative software products and services. This is the ideal place for discussing industry trends like system integration with other professionals in a very pleasant, relaxed atmosphere.”
- Juergen Koenig, Head of International Sales, Implico Group
"StocExpo has for many years been a very good and important exhibition because it is customers in the tank business that really come here, and since we are delivering tank gauging systems, it's the perfect exhibition for us to be at in Europe. We will come back next year. We have been here since the inauguration, and we'll be here for a long time to come."
- Rikard Lövdahl, General Manager, Tank Gauging Emerson
"Looking at the people we have been meeting, the companies we have been talking to, the orders that we have scheduled already, we are certain that we will make a very positive return on investment for taking a stand at StocExpo."
- Jeroen Heerink, Sales Engineer, Yokogawa
"Our objective was to create awareness within the tank storage market. This very specialised exhibition provided us with high quality prospects, and although its effects will not be measurable for some time, we have a very positive impression of StocExpo."
- Christel Bockting, Marketing and Communications, Trisoplast
"Honeywell Enraf B.V. has worked with StocExpo for years. During this year's StocExpo event we were amazed by their tremendous efforts on making this event a success. An event like this can be very stressful and there can be a lot of last minute changes/adjustments/extraordinary requests (we had a few of those...) those needs were immediately followed up. The StocExpo team was able to jump in when needed and help us out quickly. We are looking forward to working with them again in 2013!"
- Roxanne Comvalius, Buyer, Honeywell Enraf B.V.
"Tyco Williams Fire & Hazard Control participated in the StocExpo exhibition and Conference. We were very impressed with the exhibition staff who were professional and very supportive of our needs during the event. We would recommend both attendance and exhibition at this event by other trade suppliers and visitors for the unique tank storage industry. We wish the organisers many thanks for the support received during the three days."
- Ewen Duncan, Operations & Technical Manager, Williams Fire & Hazard Control
"StocExpo 2012 indicated the end of a pessimistic period for the downstream activities. Downstream visitors came to the exhibition with concrete, short and medium term, projects and went back home with more equipment and services than before."
- Michel Verant, Export Sales Manager, SATAM SAS - MECI SAS

Why Econosto is representing Smith Valve in Rotterdam
During StocExpo in Rotterdam we saw plenty of ‘exotic’ products, such as forged valves all the way from Houston, Texas. These products were proudly displayed on the Econosto booth, where Product Sales Manager, Richard Hoorn, discussed their many benefits – including the brightly painted handwheels.
Belven staff committed to growth and charity work
