“Although initially we may have been slightly apprehensive about attending Tyrexpo Africa, this show has proved to be amazingly successful”, said Chemvulc Marketing director Danny Kirsten. “We have been very impressed with the organisation of Tyrexpo Africa and the quality of visitors to our stand has been exemplary. We will not take a lot of persuading to exhibit next time.”
