The Association of Welding Distribution Ltd has announced that it will support the MACH 2012 exhibition from 16th-20th April 2012 via the popular, ‘AWD Welding World™ Village'.

Adrian Hawkins, AWD Director & National Chairman commented, “As our Country now recognises the necessity to expand the UK Manufacturing industry to supplement the ailing Financial Services sector, the Association of Welding Distribution has a lead role in the promotion of Manufacturing Technology and in particular, the welding and thermal cutting processes."

He added, "The Association is delighted to be able to support the UK’s premier manufacturing exhibition MACH 2012 through the AWD “Welding World™ village” where many of our members will exhibit the latest innovations and equipment in welding and gas technology."

The 'AWD Welding World™ village' will compose of many stands devoted to presenting high technology welding and cutting equipment, welding consumables, health and safety equipment, process gases and other ancillary products. In addition, it will also feature a Wleding World Seminar area and Hospitality Lounge facility.

Adrian Sell, MACH 2012, Sales Manager said, “We are delighted to be working closely with the AWD for MACH 2012. MACH is the week long showcase for the UK’s manufacturing industry and as such the addition of the Welding World Village to MACH 2012 will add real value to Mach’s 20,000+ visitors.“

AWD Member, Nick Dulley, Nederman Business Manager – Machining commented, “Nederman has exhibited at the bi-annual Mach shows for the last 8 years in our capacity as both a welding and now a machining equipment supplier I would very much endorse both the visitor quality and the quantity. The last show in 2010 produced at least 90 high quality leads over the 5 days, some of which were in fact in our welding sector."

"The organisation and professionalism of this show has proven to withstand the toughest market forces and I am convinced that it will grow in the coming years to be the premier manufacturing technologies exhibition for the UK,” concluded Dulley.
