CSort, the Altai color sorting equipment manufacturer, has launched cooperation with French companies. Thus, Smartsort Color Sorter was installed at a French customer’s location last week. Besides, CSort now has a dealer in France — AgriConsult, a company that manufactures and installs grain processing equipment. Together with the new dealer, CSort participated in SIMA, one of the largest European agribusiness shows, which took place in Paris.
France is an agrarian country, a largest global wheat manufacturer and exporter, — says Vitaly Savinkov, CSort’s Commercial Director. — So we consider this country a promising market for our company’s equipment. Besides, wheat, lentil, corn, alfalfa, flax and soybeans are cultivated in France. Smartsort Color Sorter that we are offering to European agricultural producers purifies such crops very well.
AgriConsult, whose office is located in Darois, has started selling CSort’s color sorters in France. It fully equips agricultural companies with all the machinery needed. According to AgriConsult’s experts, CSort’s equipment is in demand among French companies, so several new sales are expected soon. And the first French customer to buy Smartsort Color Sorter was Agro Logic, a company from Nuille-sur-Vicoin. The customer compared color sorters by different manufacturers, examined test sorting results for the product sample and eventually chose Smartsort Color Sorter, ― says Alyona Lebedeva, International Commerce Manager at CSort.
— The negotiation lasted several months, the French company’s representatives asked questions about the cameras, chutes, and matrixes. They sent us samples of alfalfa, flax and buckwheat for test sorting, and were happy with the results. Before making the final decision, the company’s representatives went to Prague to visit one of our customers who uses Smartsort. The guests were surprised at the speed of CSort remote service: our experts went online and it only took them 15 minutes to make the necessary adjustments. This became the final argument for buying Smartsort.
Under the agreement, the customer became CSort’s reference. This means that any European company’s representative can visit Nuille-sur-Vicoin and see the color sorter in operation. There are those who wish to use this opportunity. As a result of the show, several companies expressed interest in our machines. Besides, at SIMA, CSort’s managers negotiated with potential dealers from Great Britain, Ireland and Spain. Manufacturers in those countries are also interested in CSort’s equipment. Thus, color sorters have already been installed and successfully operate in Spain.
CSort develops and manufactures high-tech bulk sorting machines. This leading Russian seller of its color sorters is a part of the Altai cluster of agricultural machinery engineering. CSort is represented in Russia (Barnaul, Krasnodar, Samara, Novosibirsk), and abroad — in Germany (Dresden), Bulgaria (Veliko Tarnovo), Poland (Poznan), Czech Republic (Olomouc), Iran (Shiraz), Ukraine (Rovno, Kharkov).
