NHE reports excellent exhibition success
NHE has taken advantage of key exhibitions to showcase its range of capabilities and technologies.
The organisation – which combines the process plant capability of Plasticraft, the non-destructive testing specialisation of Ardrox Engineering and the leading wastewater and effluent treatment track-record of Lancy Technology – is reporting excellent success at both the Transfair 2013 Conference and Exhibition and the Surface World Show.
“Held every two years, Surface World is regarded internationally as a leading surface treatment and finishing exhibition, and this year’s event at the NEC once again proved very successful for us,” says NHE’s Managing Director Mike Priddle. “Our stand presented the individual capabilities of Plasticraft, Ardrox Engineering and Lancy Technology, and also highlighted the customer benefits created from the links between their specific activities – one of the key advantages of their close synergy within NHE.”
As the surface finishing and metal treatment industry is a major focus for all three NHE organisations, the Surface World Show has emerged as a major focus for the company’s activity. Mike Priddle is delighted to report consistent interest from visitors to the stand throughout the three day event, resulting in a number of new opportunities – both in the UK and overseas.
“The show followed our earlier involvement in the Transfair 2013 Conference and Exhibition which was held at the Heritage Motor Museum in Gaydon, Warwickshire,” continues Mike Priddle. “The event, designed to link the transport industry with innovative finishing technologies, was a very useful opportunity to present our track record and capabilities.
“The target audience ranged from automotive and aerospace through to defence, marine, and rail equipment manufacturers,” adds Mike Priddle. “All of these are key areas, not just for NHE, but also for other parts of the Norman Hay Group including Ultraseal, Surface Technology, and SIFCO ASC.”
The event spanned three days, with the exhibition run in conjunction with a corresponding conference. “Our success over many years has been based on being able to offer precise services to specialist areas of manufacturing and engineering, and this was an excellent example of this principle in practice. As with Surface World, we are delighted with the interest shown on the stand and look forward now to developing the opportunities that it identified,” concludes Mike Priddle.
