Why have you decided to become involved in EMCON?

We are vey keen to raise our profile within the engineering and manufacturing sectors in the region and see the EMCON event as the perfect opportunity for us to do this. We’ve attended the show in previous years and have been very impressed by its growth, so we know it fits for us.

Our decision to invest in the show as a gold sponsor coincides with both our rebrand and ambitious growth strategy, and EMCON is the ideal platform for us to unveil these to a vast and diverse North East audience.

On both a regional and national level, the show prides itself on showcasing engineering and manufacturing excellence, so something else we’re keen to showcase is our sheet metal capabilities and the wide range of services that we can deliver.
