TR Fastenings showcases products and services to fast growing Mexican market at Fastener Fair Mexico 2017
TR Fastenings (TR) returned to the World Trade Centre in Mexico City on 20-21st June to exhibit at Fastener Fair Mexico for the second year running. Representatives from TR North America and Europe attended the event in order to increase awareness of the TR brand, network with existing and potential customers and promote the company’s global manufacturing and full service capabilities.
Exhibitions such as this are valuable to TR, providing it with opportunities to expand its reach into new markets, showcase its wide range of products and services and have face to face conversations with customers and prospects. Fastener Fair Mexico is the only fastener and fixing event for Latin America, bringing together manufacturers, distributors, suppliers and end users in the region. The event also incorporated a conference tailored for distributors, featuring a keynote speech on the 'Trump effect in Manufacturing', covering a pertinent issue facing the Mexican market.
This year’s event attracted less exhibitors than last year, with 150 companies from 10 countries attending. However, there was a 20% increase in visitor numbers from last year, with 1600 professionals attending. This higher footfall benefitted the TR team as they were able to discuss their services with a larger range of businesses. TR staff met representatives from companies spanning a number of sectors, including automotive, construction, aerospace, white goods and electronics. A key talking point for these conversations was TR’s site in Houston, Texas, only a two hour flight from Mexico City.
Chris Black, TR’s global director of automotive business development, comments: “Mexico is growing considerably as a market for both manufacturers and suppliers, and there is a huge appetite for the services and products we offer. The increased footfall at the fair this year was indicative of the vast opportunity we have to forge and develop relationships in the region, and we enjoyed a number of very promising conversations with prospective partners. Our Houston site is very appealing to Mexican-based businesses and we will look to expand our presence in the region as the market continues to thrive.”
