Attending Automechanika Birmingham at the NEC next week?  Visit stand 6D70 to find out how Drive Midlands can help your business to grow.

The Midlands Engine in the very centre of the UK has one of the strongest automotive industries in the world. There are more than 1,100 specialist automotive firms in the region, employing some 50,000 people in vehicle manufacturing and just fewer than 180,000 in the wider advanced engineering sector.

Industry experts predict that 2 million vehicles will be produced in the UK by 2020. This organic growth combined with re-shoring potential represents a £6 billion opportunity for the supply chain.

Due to the importance of the automotive sector in the Midlands Engine region, Drive Midlands has been created to help reduce the risk for automotive businesses looking to establish or expand their presence in the UK.
