Bring­ing Man­u­fac­tur­ing Home

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - GOOD BUSINESS -

Bring­ing Man­u­fac­tur­ing Home will be a key theme at EMEX 2016 when the coun­try’s lead­ing engi­neer­ing, man­u­fac­tur­ing, in­no­va­tion and tech­nol­ogy trade event comes to Auck­land from 31 May to 2 June.

Cel­e­brat­ing lo­cal NZ man­u­fac­tur­ers has al­ways been core to the EMEX brand and this year will be no ex­cep­tion. Bring­ing Man­u­fac­tur­ing Home is about recog­nis­ing the man­u­fac­tur­ing and in­no­va­tion ex­cel­lence that in­spires so many of New Zealand’s man­u­fac­tur­ing, engi­neer­ing and tech­nol­ogy com­pa­nies to not only re­main com­pet­i­tive but to pro­duce prod­ucts and ser­vices that are up there with the very best in the world.

One such ex­am­ple, and a spe­cial fea­ture at EMEX 2016, is from Lower Hutt based com­pany Fraser Engi­neer­ing. Their Fire Engine man­u­fac­tur­ing busi­ness is go­ing from strength to strength as they be­gin the process of dou­bling the size of busi­ness on the back of mov­ing into more mar­kets. Fraser Engi­neer­ing al­ready man­u­fac­tures about 90 per cent of the New Zealand Fire Ser­vice fleet as well as trucks for Aus­tralia, Pa­cific Is­lands, Fiji, Cook Is­lands, New Guinea and Asia. The fu­ture looks ex­cit­ing as they ex­pand pro­duc­tion through in­vest­ment in equip­ment up­grades and new tech­nol­ogy to make the busi­ness more smart and ef­fi­cient – not to men­tion the need to hire an ad­di­tional 20 staff to meet de­mand!

Or­gan­is­ers XPO Ex­hi­bi­tions are ex­cited to con­firm that vis­i­tors will be able to get up close and per­sonal on site with one of Fraser Engi­neer­ing’s state of the art Fire trucks as a key fea­ture at EMEX 2016.

In ad­di­tion, this year’s event fea­tures a ded­i­cated and ex­tended sem­i­nar ses­sion fo­cussing on the ever pop­u­lar topic ‘Ad­di­tive Man­u­fac­tur­ing ’ which, as you will be aware, is the term to de­scribe the tech­nolo­gies that build 3D ob­jects by adding layer-upon-layer of ma­te­rial, whether the ma­te­rial is plas­tic, metal, con­crete or one day….. hu­man tis­sue. Key stake­hold­ers from ‘NZ Prod­uct Ac­cel­er­a­tor’ (www.nzpro­duc­tac­cel­er­a­ a gov­ern­ment funded part­ner­ship be­tween nine re­search or­gan­i­sa­tions and Cal­laghan In­no­va­tion, will have a mix of pre­sen­ta­tions sum­maris­ing their R&D work and show­cas­ing a num­ber of re­cent com­mer­cial suc­cess sto­ries through work done with a num­ber of NZ com­pa­nies.

With over 155 lead­ing ex­hibitors show­cas­ing the very lat­est in­no­va­tions and tech­nolo­gies, three days of in­dus­try lead sem­i­nars, spe­cial fea­tures, visi­tor prizes, in­clud­ing the chance to win a brand new Ford and ex­clu­sive VIP net­work­ing events EMEX 2016 is guar­an­teed to in­form, ed­u­cate and ex­cite all those who visit.

With sup­port from lead­ing in­dus­try or­gan­i­sa­tions and ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions in­clud­ing NZMEA, Met­als NZ, MESNZ, Cal­laghan In­no­va­tion and Auck­land Univer­sity, EMEX 2016 will be the in­dus­try’s high­light of the year. It at­tracts not only thou­sands of vis­i­tors, but hun­dreds of the most sig­nif­i­cant in­dus­try sup­pli­ers and spe­cial­ists from all over the world.

EMEX 2016 runs from 31 May to 2 June at the ASB Show­grounds in Auck­land.
