The resurgence in UK manufacturing at Interplas 2014

Interplas UK is the biggest Polymer Industry event in the UK and only takes place every 3 years. This year we decided to take the plunge for the first time and exhibit at this highly respected event in the industry, which was held at the NEC in Birmingham.

Following arrival at the venue and after a couple of hours of manual labour we had ‘Pentagonised’ the empty stand to within an inch of its life. We had a great display of both mould tooling and components from a variety of industry sectors to give a broad overview of our capabilities to those attending the show. We were also showcasing a small sample of the Photo-Luminescent material that we have trailed recently.

Our new Pull up Banner and company Leaflets helped maintain our clean fresh appearance while providing a taster of the new website design that is currently being worked on.

Over the course of the three day event we were delighted with the quality of enquirers that were coming in. Although on some occasions the event fell somewhat quiet, we have gained a high number of viable new enquirers and prospects alike. It was also a pleasure to catch up with some of our existing customers in this informal manner.

These events are also key times to touch base with some of our own valued suppliers and a platform to gain new information and contacts for services that may be of use to our own injection moulding business moving forward.

It was great to have some of our own team visit the show to source new information relevant to their own areas of the business (as well as take the reigns on the stand for a while). Feedback from our staff who attended was very positive.

InterplasOur first time exhibiting at Interplas is already proving a great success as we are already reviewing new projects following the show!

There was high expectation set around this reputable industry event with the resurgence in UK manufacturing and this year certainly delivered…..
