TR Enjoys Success at the Increasingly Popular Automotive CEE Day in Poland

TR Fastenings (TR) is proud to have participated as an official partner at the 2017 Automotive CEE Day in Poland, Eastern Europe’s largest annual networking event for the automotive industry.

This year’s two-day gathering, held in Opole on March 23rd and 24th, was the largest and most successful event yet, attracting 350 representatives from 12 countries across Europe and Asia.
TR had a significant presence at the event, held in Opole’s Exhibition and Congress Centre. As well as taking an exhibition stand, TR presented a short video demonstrating its technical capabilities and product offering, and TR’s Director of Global Automotive New Business Development, Chris Black, was invited onto the main stage to help open the event.  
One of the main purposes of Automotive CEE Day is to bring together industry professionals for face-to-face discussions to create new working relationships, and this year more than 1000 meetings took place between suppliers and potential buyers. TR welcomed the opportunity to meet a number of major automotive manufacturers and component suppliers and left Opole with several invitations to make follow-up visits to potential new customers. 
“This was a great networking opportunity for us,” said Maciej Plewka, TR’s Business Development Manager for Poland. “This was the fourth time Automotive CEE Day has taken place, and every year it attracts more and more interest. We were able to meet many key people representing current and potential customers and this has resulted in a number of interesting new business leads.”


TR Fastenings Forges New Business Relationships at Automotive CEE Day in Poland

TR Fastenings’ automotive team, led by Chris Black, Director of Global Automotive Business Development, recently participated in Automotive CEE Day, Poland’s leading annual Automotive Purchasing Event.
Held from 14-15 April, it provided the perfect opportunity for TR to showcase its products and new technologies and the position of the TR Group as a key player in this growing global market.
As a main partner at the event, which was held on 14-15 April in Opole, Chris Black was asked to speak about the TR Group, their manufacturing sites and global footprint. Chris used the TR Automotive manufacturing video of the TR PSEP plant in Malaysia to demonstrate further our capability and zero defect philosophy to the 250 delegates who attended.
The remainder of the day was spent having one-to-one talks with representatives from the 150 automotive companies who visited the show. At the evening function, TR Fastenings received an award from the organisers as recognition of TR’s contribution and sponsorship support of the event.
The TR Fastenings group already has significant turnover in Poland within the Domestic Appliance and Electronics sector, and in the last 4 years they have seen their Tier 1 Automotive business increase rapidly. The Polish automotive sector is 12% of their GDP and growing at a pace, and TR is perfectly poised to help support the Tier1’s in this Region.  
This was the second time that TR Fastenings has attended Automotive CEE and, according to Maciej Plewka, Business Development Manager at TR Fastenings Poland, the TR Group is now well-established as a key fastener supplier in Poland. He comments, “The show was a huge success for TR’s automotive team. We had a packed itinerary of meetings which proved very productive and our stand received a steady stream of visitors throughout the day.” He adds, “We were also very impressed with how well the event was organised and will definitely return next year.”
