Advanced engineering – a show or description of Borough?
This year is the 4th Automotive Engineering Show and represents the UK’s only 100% dedicated show and open conference for businesses involved in the manufacture of components and systems for the automotive sector.
There will be representatives of businesses working with the entire spectrum from body, chassis, powertrain to ‘production’ supply chain engineering, supporting the UK’s multiple vehicle design, development, production & integration engineering programmes.
The exhibition is an opportunity for buyers to meet over 750 supply chain engineering businesses, from across all high performance engineering sectors. Buyers can bring job specs and obtain instant quotes with instant feedback from the people undertaking the work; rare in this modern age.
A programme of industry-led free conference presentations offers market and technology intelligence and insight from some of the leading figures in OEMs and all tiers of the supply chain.
If you want to narrow the focus, I guess we are on the list of ‘Components & sub-systems suppliers – covering: Auto Exterior and Auto Interior’ category, which given the nature of today’s modular manufacturing processes will be a big list.
The answer to the question “why exhibit?” is simple; we found last year presented a valuable opportunity to be seen and show off our skills to people who may not be aware of the part we play in the creation of the end product, as it rolls off their production line.
In fact not long after conversations on our stand with representatives from leading manufacturers, Toyota, Infinity and McLaren Automotive, we were showing them around our production facility in Leigh-on-Sea. This allowed us the opportunity to demonstrate our high quality injection moulding capabilities, alongside our renowned chrome-plating of plastics.
We are well aware that meeting and talking with manufacturers at shows and even walking them round our factory is unlikely to lead to a relationship directly with them. But, being able to demonstrate our experience and the quality of our work helps put our name on the ‘reliable, high quality assembly manufacturers’ list and ensure we get discussed when global component assembly producers that ultimately supply the car giants, seek new solutions to old problems.
We’re on stand H40 in Hall 5 so come along and say hello, we’re always pleased to talk injection moulding, chrome plating of plastic and cars in general.
