Hannover Messe brings new orders for SFS

May 15, 2014

In April, The SFS Manufacturing Group exhibited for a week at the Hannover Messe, as part of a UKTI trip, organised by the Birmingham Chamber of Commerce.  The show was very good, and the organisation of both the UK team and the German organisers was excellent.  Hannover Messe is a very large show, there were 180,000 visitors during the week.  One of those visitors was Rt Hon Michael Fallon, Minister of State for business and energy, who was accompanied by staff from the British Embassy and UKTI.  The picture below shows Rt Hon Michael Fallon (centre) talking to Tony Parker (left) and John Soanes (right).

When we returned, we set about following up the leads we had generated, and this week we have shipped out 4 orders to a new customer from Denmark, as well as quoting for a very large automotive job that could be worth approx €1,000,000 pa.
