TR Fastenings enjoys 4th successful year at Automechanika Birmingham

TR Fastenings, global specialist in the design, engineering, manufacture and distribution of high quality industrial and Cat C fastenings, has completed its fourth successful appearance at Automechanika Birmingham.

The automotive trade show, held at the NEC in Birmingham, took place 4-6 June. Organisers claim that this year’s show was the busiest ever since it first began in 2016.

Having exhibited at all three previous Automechanika Birmingham shows, TR sees it is a must-attend event and the place to be seen for suppliers, Tier 1s and OEMs in the automotive supply chain.

While exhibiting, the TR team also attended a number of high-profile VIP events and networking receptions at the show, hosted by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) and Department of International Trade (DIT).

This year, TR showcased its product range suitable for EV charging units and EV batteries as the EV market gathers pace. The team held several meetings at its stand with existing, new and prospective customers to discuss the products already in TR’s range and other solutions.

Glenda Roberts, Global Sales Director for TR’s parent company, Trifast plc, said: “Attending and exhibiting at Automechanika Birmingham has enabled us to further establish our excellent position within the automotive industry. Our strong links with organisations such as the SMMT, the DIT and the North East Automotive Alliance (NEAA) ensure we are constantly talking to the key players inthe industry and keeping on top of emerging trends.”

“Despite often negative commentary around the health of UK automotive manufacturing, we believe the opposite is true. The growth of the EV market plus astonishing developments in engineering and materials makes this an incredibly exciting sector to be operating in and we are hugely proud of the role we play in the industry.”

The next event will be in 2021 as the show moves to a bi-annual format, with TR having already booked its place.
