Reflecting the current strong business climate throughout the UK, there was a very positive atmosphere amongst the exhibitors in the fantastic new Hall 1 at the Farnborough Exhibition & Conference Centre ahead of the 2019 Southern Manufacturing & Electronics Show.
Reel Service Ltd was exhibiting again at Southern to showcase the company’s portfolio of Services, Materials & Equipment offerings to the UK market.
From early on the first day the isles were full of visitors and this continued across all 3 days of the show. This proved an excellent opportunity to meet with existing customers to discuss current business and potential new business opportunities.
The show also provided the all-important opportunity to meet with new companies to discuss their component packaging challenges and to show them what service & material solutions Reel Service can provide.
The show provided the opportunity to meet a broad range of potential new customers ranging from small EMS providers, component distributors up to large multinational companies and many new and interesting leads were obtained.
The general mood from the discussions was ‘cautious optimism’ with most visitors reporting full order books. However the uncertainty of how trading relations within Europe from Q2 onwards would transpire was on everyone’s mind. Regardless, time and trade waits for no one and in the meantime, the UK electronics industry is looking forward to a busy year ahead. To support this, Reel Service remains positioned as Europe’s premier Tape & Reel Service provider and further strengthening our market position as ‘The Tape & Reel Company’.
