DSEI launches the Manufacturing Hub A leading event that connects governments, national armed forces, industry thought leaders and the global defence and security supply chain on an unrivalled scale, Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI 2019) is being held 10-13 September at Excel London.

Moreover, this year’s event will — for the first time — feature a Manufacturing Hub, to highlight the vital contribution that Tier Two, Thee and Four manufacturers make to the UK defence industry.

The Hub will be sponsored by the Manufacturing Technology Centre, a UK organisation established to bridge the gap between university-based research and the development of innovative manufacturing solutions; the MTC is part the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, supported by Innovate UK.

Andy Barnes, associate director for Defence and Security at the MTC, said: “We are delighted to sponsor the Manufacturing Hub at DSEI 2019 (www.dsei.co.uk).

“We look forward to showcasing how we can help the defence sector and its supply chain modernise processes, generate efficiencies and improve productivity through new technology.”

The MTC highlights the facts that UK manufacturing currently employs 2.6 million people, accounts for 44% of total exports and represents 70% of business R&D.

“Some of the most innovative technologies can be found within this space, and the hub will include manufacturing leaders in areas including: CAD/CAM software, electronic components, additive manufacturing, turning, milling, connectors and cables, and high-precision pressing.”

The Manufacturing Hub will provide a dedicated space for UK manufacturers to highlight their capabilities and meet potential new customers from among the more than 35,000 visitors and 4,000-plus system engineers/designers
expected to take part in the event.

Be seen in all the right places!
