The goods to be bought
The Production Director showed Mr. Smirnov round the factory and answered a lot of questions of his. There were especially many questions asked on the production floor. The Production Director told Mr. Smirnov about the products of the company. Mr. Smirnov was greatly impressed by the number of the new products and by their sophistication. Then the Production Director showed Mr. Smirnov the different departments of the company and introduced him to the management team. When all was seen and spoken of the Production Director took Mr. Smirnov to Mr. Freiser's office.
Frank: And what do you think of all that you've seen?
Ivan: Oh, it's very interesting and impressive. It's a very good set-up: modern factory, good labour force.
Frank: That's true. We have been in this business for over ten years. Besides we are planning to expand. Our annual turnover is about twenty million pounds.
Ivan: Then our business will be too small for you, I'm afraid.
Frank: You are wrong here, I'm sure. We try to satisfy all our customers. And we treat them all with high esteem.
Ivan: By the way, could I have some material on your products? I should study the assortment you offer before we discuss other matters relating to the enquiry, or to our future contract.
Frank: Naturally you will have all the publicity brochures and leaflets. They contain all the technical details. We have prepared a pack for you. Ivan: Thank you very much. That's very considerate of you.
Frank: And when will you be able to tell us what devices exactly interest you?
Ivan: Most probably I'll look through all the materials tonight, then contact our General Director and tomorrow I'll give you our reply.
Frank: Hard work, isn't it? But certainly it's better to discuss all the details while you are here in London. Now let's make a break and enjoy lunch at the restaurant just across the street.
