The Auto Com­po­nent Man­u­fac­tur­ers As­so­ci­a­tion of In­dia (ACMA) par­tic­i­pated for the first time in the Au­tomechanika Birm­ing­ham 2017, claimed to be UK’s lead­ing ex­hi­bi­tion for the au­to­mo­tive af­ter­mar­ket and sup­ply chain. An ACMA con­tin­gent of 23 com­pa­nies show­cased their prod­ucts and tech­nolo­gies at the event or­gan­ised from June 6 to 8, 2017 at NEC, Birm­ing­ham.

Au­tomechanika Birm­ing­ham hosted over 750 ex­hibitors who pre­sented the lat­est prod­ucts and tech­nolo­gies from the af­ter­mar­ket and sup­ply chain. The sem­i­nars along with the ex­hi­bi­tion cov­ered busi­ness dy­nam­ics, best prac­tices and tech­ni­cal up­dates. Live demon­stra­tions for the af­ter­mar­ket were also a part of the ex­hi­bi­tion.

Some of the lead­ing In­dian par­tic­i­pants at Au­tomechanika Birm­ing­ham 2017 in­cluded Jamna Auto In­dus­tries Ltd, Lu­cas TVS, Ma­cas Au­to­mo­tive, NBC Bear­ings and Simco Auto Ltd. The com­pa­nies show­cased their ca­pa­bil­i­ties in prod­uct cat­e­gories in­clud­ing springs, mo­tors, brake lin­ing, bear­ings, auto elec­tri­cals, en­gine parts and rub­ber parts. ACMA noted that it has been able to mo­bilise the group par­tic­i­pa­tion of its mem­bers with the sup­port of the Min­istry of Com­merce & In­dus­tries, Gov­ern­ment of In­dia. Rat­tan Kapur, Pres­i­dent, ACMA, said with about £71 bil­lion turnover and £18.9 bil­lion value added in 2016, the UK au­to­mo­tive in­dus­try has be­come one of the key drivers of its econ­omy. He added that it ac­counts for 12% of the UK ex­port of goods and in­vests £4 bil­lion ev­ery year in au­to­mo­tive R&D. The cur­rent auto com­po­nent trade be­tween In­dia and the UK was at $900 mil­lion.
