TR Fastenings (TR) will be exhibiting at Automechanika Birmingham from 4th-6th June 2019, when the successful exhibition for the automotive supply chain returns to the NEC for its fourth year.
TR is part of Trifast plc and is a global specialist in the design, engineering, manufacture and distribution of high quality industrial and Cat C fastenings principally to major global assembly industries. TR has 31 business locations within the UK, Asia, Europe and the USA including eight high volume, high-quality and cost-effective manufacturing sites.
TR will be exhibiting at Automechanika Birmingham on Stand F92, having enjoyed successes at the previous three events. TR sees the event as “the place to be seen” and it is an important part of its annual calendar of events and promotions.
As a Full Service Provider (FSP) to Tier 1 and Tier2 businesses supporting global OEMs in the automotive industry, TR delivers comprehensive support to its customers giving an end2end service.
A key focus this year will be on components for Electric Vehicle (EV) charging units and EV batteries (EVBs) as the EV market gathers considerable pace. The product required for these areas are already within TR’s portfolio and we will be able to support and advise on applications.
Glenda Roberts, Trifast’s Global Sales Director, comments: “The growth of the EV market and the electric highways being created has led TR into new areas of development, in particular with battery production, the fixings that are required and the finishes. Our strength as a manufacturer and distributor is further enhanced by the design and technical support that we are providing to our customers as part of the FSP service. We have heavily invested in recruiting fastener engineers over the last few years and this is proving to be a much-needed support that we can offer to our customers, from the initial design right though to VA /VE initiatives on mature products.”
TR’s qualified engineers and Product Managers will be on hand at Automechanika to advise designers, production and purchasing teams, encouraging them to bring their fastener application issues to us so we can offer solutions and demonstrate our knowledge.
TR is a member of the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) and the North East Automotive Association (NEAA) and has benefitted greatly from its association with these organisations. Attending Automechanika Birmingham over the last three years has enabled TR to further cement its position within the automotive industry, allowing it to access and converse with wider audiences, from design through to aftermarket.
