ELECTEX Dublin 2018

ETE recently enjoyed a successful couple of days at the ELECTEX Dublin Trade Show at the Citywest Hotel.

The event was held on the 17th and 18th October, with Nick Cracknell (Joint MD) taking up the exhibiting responsibility.

We were co-located alongside our new, Dublin-based, Irish distributor TEC Electric (contact details can be found below) and feel that many worthwhile contacts were made during the show.

The show gave us the opportunity to debut our new miniature stand backdrop and podium, as well as the platform to showcase our new IP65 ABS halogen-free enclosure full of stocked products.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank TEC Electric and all of those who visited our stand.

2016 Drives and Controls Show

ETE enjoyed a productive three days at 2016 Drives & Controls exhibition held at Birmingham’s NEC between Tuesday 12th April and Thursday 14th April.

Drives & Controls is recognised as the UK’s leading show for Automation, Power Transmission, and Motion Engineering. It is a biennial event and was co-located with 4 other industrial exhibitions making it the largest manufacturing / industrial event in the UK this year. The show covered the very latest in mechanical power transmission, motion control, and automation from over 400 industry leaders.

ETE have been attending the Drives & Control shows for over 20 years now which is testament to just how much we value its place on the calendar. Significant growth has been observed in the past decade with 13,115 visitors attending this year’s event (a 2.5% increase on two years ago).

The show has continued to provide an extensive pool of prospective customers and this year has certainly been no different. The experienced duo of Bob Tapping (Managing Director) and Steve Gardner (Sales Manager) were on hand to provide expert advice and information to the visitors, answering any questions raised regarding our products and company. Overall we were very pleased with number of individuals visiting our stand as well as the vast amount of interest shown in our ranges of transformers & wound components, power electronics, and thermal management products.

Our tailor-made stand (located at D484) was among the most distinctive on display highlighted by the fact that Industrial Process News (media partners of the show) selected ETE as one of the top 20 exhibitors across all 5 of the exhibitions.

Drives & Control 2016 has helped to further enhance our brand awareness and build a host of new business relationships. As such, we are pleased to announce the 2016 Drives & Controls show a considerable success!
