Manufacturing businesses from across Fife are preparing to attend the Southern Manufacturing and Electronics show, at Farnborough International in February.

 

The UK’s largest regional manufacturing technology, electronics and subcontracting exhibition has proved fruitful in recent years for Fife-based businesses, winning contracts and making new contacts.

 

Southern Manufacturing will celebrate its 21st show in 2019, where around 800 exhibitors and thousands of visitors are expected to attend the three-day event (5–7 February 2019).

 

Attending from Fife will be Contract Solutions Precision Engineering, AGS Electronics, Fife Fabrications, Reel Service and Eurospray. I4 Product Design will also take part in the visit as a means of supporting collaboration and supply chain links with Fife businesses.

 

This is Eurospray’s first time attending Southern Manufacturing. The Glenrothes-based business, Scotland’s largest sub-contract paint finishing facility, intends to use this exhibition as a platform for showcasing its leading-edge finishes to new contacts.

 

Jim Fairnie, Managing Director of Eurospray, said:

“This is our first time attending Southern Manufacturing, but we’re doing so to   showcase our paint finishing expertise to a wide range of sectors and industries.

“We anticipate that the event  will be an effective means of business development, as we will have the opportunity to network, meet new businesses, which in turn we hope will lead to new sales opportunities.”

 

Fife Council Economic Development Team’s Trade Development Programme is supporting these local businesses to visit Southern Manufacturing.

 

Pamela Stevenson, Lead Officer, Enterprise and Business Development, Fife Council, said:

“Year-on-year, Fife businesses have reported success at Southern Manufacturing. The exhibition has offered the opportunity to network with colleagues in the industry, meet potential new customers and secure new contracts.

“With manufacturing evolving all the time, this exhibition is key, as it brings together the latest developments in industrial technology and engineering services, as well offering insight into some of Europe’s top engineering specialists.”
