UK suppliers in focus


Running alongside the middle three days of the MACH exhibition on 15 to 18 April, The Engineering Supply Chain Show will bring engineering and manufacturing buyers together with suppliers, exclusively in the UK engineering and manufacturing supply chain.

The ESC show will be the only co-located exhibition alongside MACH 2024 with one visitor badge provideing access to both events.

This show-within-a-show has grown out of increased demand for the successful UK Supply Chain Zone at MACH. It is a focused event, dedicated to buyers looking to source precision subcontracting products and services from UK-based suppliers, helping to reduce goods miles as part of the UK’s commitment to greener manufacturing.

Engineering Capacity is pleased to be the exclusive media partner for this event and is exhibiting on Stand 6-791.

One common badge will provide unhindered access to both MACH and The Engineering Supply Chain Show, while in-hall links will ensure a seamless flow of visitors between the two events. Traditionally attracting over 26,000 attendees, MACH is the UK’s national event to showcase engineering and manufacturing technologies and is complemented by The Engineering Supply Chain Show, bringing together a wider audience focused on capacity in the UK subcontracting and supply chain sectors.

The exhibiters in the Engineering Supply Chain show included well-respected subcontractors in the precision engineering as well as trade bodies including the British Turned Parts Manufacturers Association, the British Plastics Federation, the Cast Metals Federation, MAKE UK Defence and the North West Aerospace Alliance.

The Engineering Supply Chain Show is sponsored by the EIA (Engineering Industries Association) and organised by the Manufacturing Technology Association (MTA). The EIA is part of the MTA cluster which incorporates the MTA, EIA, MACH Exhibition, The Engineering Supply Chain show, Additive Manufacturing UK and the Technology design and innovation challenge.
