"

  • “We always like to see what’s going on in the industry, see suppliers and new entrants, and obviously we’re interested in the new technologies which are coming on board. We will be looking for companies who are not our traditional suppliers and it’s important for us to take 24hours or more out of our week and see it all in one place here at Birmingham. It’s absolutely necessary to come together and share ideas “
