Driven by positive market outlook, over 120 exhibitors have booked their space at Fastener Fair Turkey 2020, the 5th international exhibition for fastener and fixing technology.
The international fair will take place from 27th – 29th February 2020 in hall 12 at the Tüyap Exhibition Centre in Istanbul, providing a great networking opportunity for buyers and sellers in the industry. More than 120 exhibitors will visit Fastener Fair Turkey from eight countries including Turkey, France, Germany, Italy, Iran, China, Taiwan and the USA, and space is still available.
Exhibitors include Turkish firm Norm Civata and Tekelioğlu Civata, both leading manufacturers of nuts and bolts, and Cetin Civata, which markets screws, bolts, studs and other fasteners. Also exhibiting will be Kardemir, a Turkish steel producer.
Many foreign companies are exhibiting in 2020 too, notably Berardi from Italy, a supplier of both custom and standard screws and bolts, as well as Reinhardt GmbH from Germany, a market leader of dip spin coating equipment. Another exhibitor is NOF Metal coatings, a specialist in zinc flake anti-corrosion coatings, and part of the Japanese chemical group NOF Corporation. Magni from the USA will also showcase its anti-corrosion coatings.
“With such a wide range of exhibitors, this unique fair attracts trade visitors from the automotive, agricultural, hardware, construction and civil engineering sectors, all being major users of fasteners. As many as 2,900 visitors from 48 countries were seen at the 2018 edition, and we expect numbers to rise in 2020. They included global players such as car manufacturers Ford and Toyota, as well as the Turkish Airlines and State Railways,” said Olivia Griscelli, exhibition director of Fastener Fair Turkey, on behalf of the organisers Mack Brooks Exhibitions Ltd.
Turkish industrial fastener sales are set to climb by as much as 26.4% from 2020 to 2025, to reach US$1.34 billion, a study on industrial fasteners by the Freedonia Group shows. This is driven by growth in manufacturing activity, with key automotive manufacturers such as Fiat, Daimler and Ford basing their R&D, design and engineering activities in Turkey. The country is also the sixth largest machinery manufacturer in Europe.
