MEDTEC UK : A Window on a 'Recession-Proof' Industry

SpecialChem / Mar 30, 2009

Far from being just another exhibition where you meet customers you already know, MEDTEC UK, the major medical exhibition in the UK is a showcase for raw materials, manufacturing technology, automation and outsourcing. Co-located with 3C, Mtec, Machine Building, VTX Vision Technology, Practical Vacuum and the Green Manufacturing Zone, it provides a convenient point to assess whether this particular market is recession-proof. The author looks at how business is going for design consultants, many of whom operate in this productive sectorand finds they are being approached by those from poorly performing market areas. The author also looks at polymer distributors, some of whom provide a storage and supply service for major resin companies and also prototype manufacturers. As an example, the author looks at the offering from one moulder within the industry andin conclusion finds that most of the exhibitors are delighted to have chosen this market sector.
