Installing machines in industries is a one time cost as well as it is a non recurring demand. Also, the clients think and research a lot before buying a machine. In such a situation how difficult is it to achieve client satisfaction as well as profits?
The demand for used machines has increased in developing countries. Do you feel it has any positive dimension? Will this help their development?
After a client buys a spinning machine from Suessen, what about the technical assistance required by him?
