The Business Secretary Dr Vince Cable made a tour of the exhibits at the MACH 2012 show at The NEC yesterday.
The exhibition has attracted 450 exhibitors, and is owned and run on behalf of the industry by the Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA), the not-for-profit trade body representing the UK’s hi-tech engineering-based manufacturing sector.
"I'm delighted to have been invited to MACH 2012 and very pleased to have been able to meet so many of the outstanding engineers and companies that are here,” said Cable.
“Whether exhibiting the latest technology or looking to apply it to dynamic businesses the people here demonstrate the UK’s extraordinary capacity to create, engineer and manufacture world class products.
“These technologies feed into the value chains of so many businesses both here and in the UK and are vital to creating a thriving, balanced UK economy."
