TR Fastenings Attending Global Automotive Components and Suppliers Expo 2017

Stuttgart-based exhibition attracts worldwide interest

TR Fastenings (TR) will be taking a stand at the 2017 Global Automotive Components and Suppliers Expo (GACS) in Germany, 20th-22nd June - the only exhibition in Europe dedicated to showcasing automotive components and component suppliers.
 
This will be the second successive year that TR has attended the business-to-business event, which is hosted in the famous Messe Stuttgart exhibition centre alongside Engine Expo, Automotive Interiors Expo, and Automotive Testing Expo. In total, the four events are expected to attract more than 11,000 visitors, including engineers and purchasing decision-makers from more than 50 countries.
 
Billed as “a global supplier-sourcing opportunity in one compact location,” GACS is marketed primarily at automotive OEM and Tier 1 procurement managers, component specifiers, and engineers. Tier 2 and Tier 3 suppliers will also be at the event, showcasing their latest products and technologies, as well as component manufacturers from as far afield as China, Greece, Korea, Morocco, India, Turkey, and the USA.
 
TR, part of Trifast plc, is a full service provider to the automotive industry specialising in supply to the Tier 1 market.  TR’s global reach extends to 27 sites, with manufacturing facilities accredited to TS 16949. Globally, it produces more than 50 billion components annually to over 5,000 customers.
 
Roberto Bianchi, Managing Director of TR Sweden, said: “We first invested in a stand at this exhibition last year, to demonstrate TR’s expertise in producing fasteners for interior and exterior automotive assemblies, and it exceeded our expectations. The Expo really does have a global flavour and we were impressed by the quality of visitors to our stand. It’s a great place to show how we support Tier 1 companies as a full service provider, giving end-to-end support for design, manufacture, and right through to smart logistics solutions in order to reduce the total cost of ownership.”
 
TR’s fasteners are used widely in interior and exterior vehicle assemblies, including seating components, IP consoles, trim, braking systems, airbag assemblies, and highly engineered complex parts for engine and powertrain fastenings.  In Europe, TR has automotive sites in Germany, Holland, Hungary, Italy, and Sweden.
 
TR can be found at GACS on Stand 4428.
