A Castings Zone at the UK’s leading contract and subcontract manufacturing supply chain exhibition will showcase the best of British casting companies.
The Castings Zone at Subcon (7th to 9th June 2016, NEC, Birmingham) is being supported by the Cast Metals Federation and will enable UK foundries to highlight their capabilities to buyers and key industry personnel visiting the show to source suppliers.
Newby Foundries Group, Investacast Ltd and Swan Foundry have already signed up to be a part of the Castings Zone and, at the time of going to press, space is available for other foundries to participate. Those taking part will have the opportunity to secure business from an audience with a combined purchasing authority of over £3.7 billion.
Now in its 40th year, Subcon remains the only UK event that is solely dedicated to contract manufacturing supply chains and outsourced engineering services and has doubled in size over the past four years.
It covers the complete spectrum of advanced manufacturing, from machining and metal forming, through to casting, forging, electronics, plastic moulding, treatments, additive manufacturing and composites and materials.
The spread of market sectors covered by Subcon is equally broad, with senior purchasing, production and supply chain managers attending from industries that include aerospace, automotive, medical technology, transport, oil and gas, marine and general engineering.
The dedicated zones are new for this year and will make it easier for visitors to find key suppliers. In association with CMF, the Castings Zone will emphasise the possibilities of metal casting.
In the International Supplier Zone there will be pavilions featuring subcontractors from Czech Republic, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Latvia, Turkey, India and China.
A specially commissioned series of Subcon conference presentations will address key technology and supply chain issues. These include the role of additive manufacturing in supply chains, adding value to procurement, identifying skills gaps and engineering lightweight structures.
