What’s been said:

Phil Crawley, General Manager, Haimer UK:

“Haimer UK were delighted to be part of the recent event in conjunction with Kingsbury’s.  As a partner of the IMR, it was an ideal event to showcase our technology alongside great machine tools.The event was so well attended and professionally organised. Special thanks go to the IMR for the hosting. We would not hesitate to run this sort of event again, given the great attendance from all the customers in Ireland”

IMR’s Sean McConnell said:

“This event is what Irish industry needs to get people together and talking about how the industry is changing and the new trends in technology that offer solutions and opportunities to Irish companies looking to grow and thrive in emerging markets. As Ireland produces more and more precision components into highly regulated markets it is important that we come together and address the challenges that we all face. As such I’m delighted to be a part of this in some small way and know that together we can keep Ireland at the forefront of machining technologies and winning business of the back of proving our capabilities.” 

It was a huge feat for IMR to get all these prestigious companies to come together in the National Science Park in Mullingar for these two days and share their experience and knowledge with Irish companies and it was great to see so many of the Irish companies taking advantage of this great opportunity as they look to stay competitive in hard metal high-end machining.
