Meet the TWI Team at UK Metals Expo
Stand Number L92

 TWI is pleased to announce that we will be exhibiting at UK Metals Expo on 11-12 September 2024.

The UK Metals Expo will be the first time that the entire industry is both represented and brought together fully under one roof.

UK Metals Expo benefits from full endorsement and collaboration from the UK Metals Council, its member trade associations and numerous other industry bodies. With a new Governing Body chaired by Lord Rupert Redesdale the influence of the event will be year-round with major initiatives, challenges and successes discussed and presented in detail in the show floor theatres.

The entire metals supply chain will be represented from primary metal manufacture, supply chain management, processing metals, fabrication, surface coatings and recycling with industry experts, leading vendors and trade attendees.

Come and see the TWI on Stand L92 to discuss your technology requirements.
