Manufacturer to reveal new lightweight material at Midlands expo

MIM awards  - Jim onlyAward winning manufacturing company The Autins Group has confirmed that they will be unveiling a new product for the first time at this year’s Made in The Midlands business expo in May.

The company, who develop and manufacture lightweight thermal and acoustic materials for a range of industries including automotive, marine and aerospace, will be offering visitors a sneak preview of their latest lightweight insulation material Neptune. The event takes place on Thursday 12th May at the GTG Training and Conference Centre in Wolverhampton.

Jim Griffin of The Autins Group comments “Despite being a global operation, The Autins Group is proud to have its manufacturing roots firmly in the Midlands. This event seemed the perfect place to show our new product for the first time. As the exclusive UK manufacturer, this is the only place where people will be able to see Neptune for themselves.”

The Autins Group stand will include demonstration samples of products made from Neptune as well as rolls of the lightweight fibre which can be used to improve thermal and acoustic properties for applications in a range of sectors from automotive, rail, marine and aeronautical through to clothing manufacture.

The Made in the Midlands exhibition has been running for seven years and having relocated to a new venue, the 2016 event looks likely to be the biggest yet. Over 100 companies will be exhibiting and over 1000 visitors are expected to attend.

The Autins Group  are Gold members and were named Company of the Year at the Made in the Midlands annual awards two years ago. They received the accolade in recognition of the company’s rapid growth and investment in technology. During the last five years, Autins has expanded from one UK site, setting up operations in Sweden and Germany to service customers across the world. A dedicated R&D centre is also due to open in Warwickshire later this year. The company now employs up to 200 staff at its Rugby headquarters.
