Global Automotive Components and Suppliers Expo 2017 goes from strength to strength

News from the second day of the event included Penn Engineering, a USA-based international company with 75 years' experience in the industry, demonstrating an impressive range of clinch captive fasteners that are of particular interest to the automotive industry.

“We’re showing our range of captive fasteners for different segments that are trending in automotive,” explains Dr David Quinn, director of research and development. “We’ve solution portfolios for lightweight materials, for electronic products (to assemble PCBs to different types of metals and plastic frames) and then also for electrification, which is a big area of interest for the industry. We see ourselves as different to the competition because not only do we do the fasteners, but we focus on innovation – looking at the megatrends, which is why we’re focusing on these three segments. We look to collaborate with customers; we collaborate with everyone from OEMs right the way down through the tiers. Not only do we do fasteners, but we also have the installation system, so we’re showcasing our inserter.”

Stuttgart’s International Exhibition of Specialist Automotive Components and Automotive Supply
Chain Partners

Tier 1, 2 and 3 Automotive Component Manufacturers from around the world will be at the expo to display their very latest technologies and products, plus numerous more exhibitors will be on hand to discuss how they can participate in cost reduction within supply chains, and how they can offer new, alternative, cost-effective manufacturing and supply solutions. The event co-hosts Engine Expo and Automotive Interiors Expo, meaning Global Automotive Components and Suppliers Expo is expected to feature over 300 exhibiting component suppliers. Furthermore, international representations, pavilions and specialist components manufacturers will be participating from as far afield as Korea, China, India, Greece, Turkey, United Kingdom and West Virginia, USA, so this is a truly global supplier-sourcing opportunity in one compact location.
