Jason Pritchard (Group Managing Director) commented that “EMCON 2021 was a really successful event for us. As a result of the event and meeting Peter Williams, we have since joined forces with him and the team at SMS Tech to develop a Manufacturing Shop Floor Management solution. We also had a great response by attending the event for the first time dual branded as Fitfactory Technology and Valuechain Technology, Sister companies which form part of the Scale Digital Ventures Group. Some of the opportunities that came from the event have been slow burners and so we are very much looking forward to re-igniting those conversations at the event this year. “

Following the success of the 2021 event, their expectations this year are very much about having the opportunity to help educate companies of all sizes on how to de-risk their supply chains to give them the competitive advantage. They are attending again as Fitfactory Technology and Valuechain Technology, and are really excited to be showcasing Valuechain’s new Supplier Portal at the event. They have received a great response to the supply chain management solution so far and are really proud of the team that have developed this product.

Kaye Collins, commented for EMCON that “this proves the power of the show. Not just bringing sales and buying opportunities but also putting people together who find synergies in each others services or products, Outcomes like this could never be fully predicted but having the knowledge that we were instrumental in forging the relationship brings incredible satisfaction.”

Jason continued “we have expanded our team right across the UK since EMCON in 2021. I’m particularly pleased to have brought in several new roles to our growing Stockton office. Providing great career opportunities in the Northeast is something I am passionate about, and it will continue to be a strong focus of mine. “

He concluded by stating that “We are pleased to be a Gold Sponsor of the Northeast’s leading Manufacturing exhibition and excited to be helping companies of all sizes along their journey through our modular software solutions.”

David Land (chairman for EMN) concluded by saying that “ seeing businesses return each year with a stronger presence and greater sponsorship highlights the value they find in joining us. More and more come back as a sponsor following a successful exhibition the previous year, identifying the benefits of being part of such a great show. Having the Fitfactory Technology and Valuechain Technology back as a dual brand shows just how our sectors focus is moving toward greater use of technology to accomplish growth.”
