We are very pleased once again to be able to support and participate in an NEAA event. Their proactivity in bringing people together, with interesting topics and agendas is always an event that we benefit from. We are looking forward to attending. 

Chris Black, Director of Automotive New Business Development at TR Fastenings 

Paul Butler CEO at the NEAA said: “We have worked closely with TR Fastenings since 2015 when the NEAA was first set up. As an active member they support initiatives and maximise the benefits of working together as a regional cluster. I’m delighted TR Fastenings are once again a key sponsor at the Expo, and we hope this year’s event is as fruitful for them as it has been in previous years.

TR has recently launched new interactive 3D animations which help to make its products and installation methods easier to understand for buyers and design engineers, as well as being a beneficial training and educational tool. These real-time technical animations expertly demonstrate products, processes and concepts, which can often be complex and hard to visualise.

Produced by TR’s in-house visualisation team 3D models have been created following collaboration with their technical and design Teams.

TR is able to show an entire installation process, end to end. What can often be difficult to explain is now much clearer and easier to understand using visual representation of the part in situ. TR’s installation animations are an ingenious way to demonstrate a virtual assembly and sub assembly in a simple way.

In May 2022, TR launched its new website, which consolidated its previous investor site and corporate site into one digital front door for the group. It now includes a host of new features and enriched content, including a personalised user area, which helps to create a new experience for TR’s customers and partners. In particular the electric vehicle charging units and set top box animations are leading edge.
