Shakespeare Engineering will draw attention to its recent investments at this year’s Subcon, to be held at the NEC Birmingham from 9 to 11 June.

Shakespeare has recently invested in two vacuum brazing furnaces, a pulsed TIG welding facility and a coil-winding machine for round wire and strip.

It has also opened a press shop for low to medium volume pressings in materials such as Monel and OFHC copper.

New CNC machines include two further five-axis machining centres and a large-diameter lathe for turning up to 750mm diameters.

Shakespeare Engineering joins a host of UK and international exhibitors at Subcon 2009, the UK’s one-stop-shop for subcontract manufacturing services.

Subcon 2009 will give buyers the chance to source subcontract manufacturing services from an array of national and international suppliers.

Manufacturing services on offer will include machined parts, electronic assemblies, castings, plastic mouldings and metal fabrications, as well as design and build and rapid prototyping services.

Subcon 2009 will feature the Manufacturing Equipment and Materials Zone, which presents products and services for which buyers of subcontract manufacturing may also have procurement responsibility.

12-14 June 2012

Dedicated to contract and subcontract manufacturing, Subcon covers everything from design and prototyping to finishing and testing. Subcon is a showcase for the latest technology and the finest manufacturing services in the world. 

• Design and manufacturing services 
• Advanced technology, equipment and materials 
• Sourcing and supply chain services
• Management systems, consulting services and software

Exhibitors meet face to face with purchasing and supply chain professionals from blue-chip OEM’s and major industrial and engineering groups. These are the key decision makers for strategic outsourcing projects. They are complemented by design teams that have a major input into sourcing strategies for new contracts and the production professionals who are responsible for tactical subcontracting and special process outsourcing. 

In terms of seniority, 75% are director or management level and 50% are the ultimate decision makers on sourcing subcontract services. Many visitors arrive with drawings and are ready to do business. More than 25% are responsible for an overall spend of on subcontracting services in excess of £1million a year and 63% expect the volume of work they subcontract will increase (29% expect it to stay the same).
