Jona, Switzerland: – Dry granulation expert Gerteis will return to Japan’s high prestige Interphex Expo in Tokyo to showcase its world-class roller compaction technologies.

Gerteis will be co-exhibiting with Japan’s Estech Corporation Ltd. at Booth 2-34 in East Hall 3 at Tokyo’s Big Sight Center.

“This is the second year in succession we have attended Interphex Japan,” said Gerteis Market Manager for Japan, Michael Gerteis, who will be leading the company’s presence at the show along with CEO Paul Gerteis.

“Interphex has become our key show for Japan and our consistent presence here underlines our continued commitment to the Japanese market,” Michael Gerteis added.

A central feature of the Gerteis display will be the Macro-Pactor® flagship production-scale roller compactor. The Macro-Pactor® will be fully operational on stand, with individual demonstrations available on request.

“We will be able to show them the optimal ways of applying our advanced roller compactor technology for continuous manufacturing, along with world-class application knowledge,” said Mr. Gerteis.
