The ties that bind: Sumitomo (SHI) Demag celebrates a total of 70 years of partnerships

Paul Papapavlou, the current managing director of the Sumitomo (SHI) Demag agency in Greece, began working with two German machine-manufacturing companies called Stübbe and Ankerwerk back in 1970. Three years later, as the owner of Technicom Ltd. he signed an agency agreement with the two machine builders, who were subsequently purchased by the Schwaig, Germany-based Demag Plastics Machinery company. In 1976, Technicom Ltd. changed its name to Tecomer Ltd. The company, which is based in the greater Athens area, is proudly celebrating over 40 years of successful partnership with what is now Sumitomo (SHI) Demag.

In 1992, Jusuco Oy became the official agency for today's Sumitomo (SHI) Demag in Finland, and has now been associated with the company for more than twenty years.

Odd Bjørklund, the managing durector of Hans Claussen AS, has represented Sumitomo (SHI) Demag in Norway now for 10 years. From its headquarters in Stabekk, approximately 10 kilometers west of Oslo, the agency provides support and consultancy services to Norwegian processing companies working in the plastics industry.
