During the event products such as car lighting systems, sound moderators, cooling systems, friction and brake circuits, engine and transmission parts, gear systems, hand tools for the automotive industry were presented. 15 exhibitors came from Poland, next to the PAIH stand presented companies: Polish companies at AAPEX 2019.
The contact point between contractors and the place of promotion of the Polish automotive sector was the Polish national stand organized by the Polish Investment and Trade Agency in connection with the implementation of the automotive and aircraft parts industry promotion program under Sub-measure 3.3.2 of the Intelligent Development Operational Program.
On the first day of the fair, a press conference for journalists was organized. Representatives of the media got acquainted with the potential of the Polish automotive industry during the expert's speech - Grzegorz Gałczyński. The Honorary Consul of the Republic of Poland in Las Vegas, Mr John Petkus, also took part in the briefing.
We managed to establish contacts with representatives of Nevada economic organizations and wholesale agents supplying the automotive sector in other states of America.
Polish parts and car accessories enjoy a good reputation in the USA. Guests visiting the PAIH stand emphasized that they are high quality products - analogous to German or French but at a more attractive price.
An opportunity for Polish companies on the American market are high import duties (25%) on automotive products of some Asian manufacturers, which causes a gradual withdrawal from suppliers from that region and the search for other attractive contacts in Europe. The offers of manufacturers of braking systems (mainly trucks), power transmission, lighting and car accessories were particularly popular.
