The industry flocked to the NEC today for the first day of Subcon, the Advanced Manufacturing Show and the Engineer Design and Innovation Show. Buyers did business, HVMC unveiled the changing face of manufacturing and Brexit was tackled at The Engineer Conference, which runs in tandem with the shows.
Subcon is the UK’s only event dedicated to outsourced manufacturing. It serves all sectors and all processes – from machining, sheet metalworking, casting and forging, to plastic moulding, composites and electronics.
