Manufacturers are rallying for the 10th annual Made In Group Manufacturing Exhibition which takes place on June 20 at Ricoh Arena, Coventry.

Thousands of world class manufacturing and engineering companies from the UK supply chain will come to network, trade and meet with the 300 Made in the Midlands Members who are exhibiting from the £120bn Made in the Midlands Manufacturing Group.

Companies that will be taking part include Siemens, JLR, GKN, Fanuc, Dennis Eagle, Gestamp, Ricoh, Mapei, East End Foods, ZF, Apollo Chemicals, Kloeckner, Hadley Group, Schneider Electric, Comau, Hexagon Metrology, Heller Machine Tools, IMI Precision, Gardner Denver, Mapal, CeDo and hundreds more.

"We are about to enter a period of huge economic uncertainty, yet in the last few weeks, the 500+ Made in the Midlands members have indicated that 80% are forecasting growth currently, 75% intend to be investing in new plant and equipment and 70% are taking on more people. This is the gravitational mass created by the halo effect of successful businesses. Align yourself to this £120 billion network and visit or exhibit at Made in the Midlands this year. Remember 'Share of Voice = Share of Opportunity.' It’s time to be heard." said Made in the Midlands Deputy CEO, Charles Addison.

He says that with everything from raw materials through to owner managed SMEs, through to Tier One, Prime and OEM companies, including some of the largest employers in the world, participating shouldn't your firm be involved?

“Whether it is to meet new customers, new suppliers or even if you have roles you have to create and are struggling to bring in and attract the right level of talent, this value added package includes access to 36 world class best practice events building up to the exhibition and to the end of the year where you can make the most of the contacts you make at the show. It makes Made in the Midlands highly measurable.”
