Plant & Works Exhibition hits the right notes

Published:  08 May, 2008

The new Plant and Works Exhibition (PWE) attracted thousands of visitors, many of which were surprised at the wide range of maintenance options available to them. The aim of PWE was to reflect the 'multi-tasking' required of today"s plant, works and maintenance engineers and covered a comprehensive range of relevant topics from CMMS, condition monitoring, thermal imaging, and training to boilers and burners, energy efficiency, health & safety, handling & storage, industrial rental, and buildings maintenance, plus much more.

Organiser DFA Media said the new event ensured industry professionals were able to gain the broadest insight concerning what industry solutions are currently available on the market, and provided engineering professionals with an event with real substance and value for their time out of the office.

Exhibitors at PWE were a mix of suppliers of plant and maintenance equipment and related products and services. For example the evolution of infrared continued at PWE with leading manufacturers and suppliers - Flir Systems, Fluke, Thermoteknix, Infratec, and HawkIR - supporting the event with a host of new developments for 2008.

Condtion monitoring and CMMS exhibitors include, SPM Instrument, Artesis, Pruftechnik and Softsols Group.

Bill Parker, Vice-Chairman of the Institute of Diagnostic Engineers, was upbeat about the success of the show for the Association: "It has been a very worthwhile experience and we would do it again.”

While Stan Jackson, managing director of SPM Instrument commented that visitors were “the right people involved in the right projects”, and was pleased with the high level of interest generated by his new product launch. He added: “It’s been a definite success and we are already committed to 2010.”

The bi-annual show makes its next appearance between the 8-10th June 2010, and is aiming to build on its firm foundation established at this year’s event. Plant & Works Exhibition will again run alongside Drives and Controls, Air-Tech, IFPEX, Electrex, Subcon, and MACH, making the whole series of events the most important manufacturing exhibitions in the UK.
