Exhibitors make final preparations for Fastener Fair Turkey 2016
Wednesday, February 10, 2016
More than 190 exhibitors are making their final preparations for Fastener Fair Turkey, which opens its doors at the IFM - Istanbul Expo Centre in just two months’ time, on 30 and 31 March.
There has been unprecedented demand for stands at the event, which is now well established as the
essential showcase for Turkey’s increasingly successful fasteners industry. In addition, the show has
attracted many leading foreign firms pursuing opportunities arising from the country’s strong economic record, making this the biggest Fastener Fair Turkey so far.
Turkey’s fastener manufacturers have developed rapidly to meet the needs of a growing home market, and are increasingly looking for international business opportunities. Among companies aiming to attract overseas interest at the show will be Çetin Civata, with a product range that includes high quality bolts, nuts, screws, rivets, washers, anchors, furniture products and threaded rods, as well as grease nipples, hardware, hooks and split pins.
Also intending to meet foreign potential customers will be Norm Civita, which supplies the automotive, white goods, furniture and construction industries with products such as bolts, bushings, screws, ball joints and rivets. Sa-Ra Enerji Insaat is another exhibitor that is active internationally. It produces high quality bolts nuts and screws, serving markets that include automotive companies, for which it runs a dedicated production line, as well as energy transmission, heavy construction, industry and equipment, and safety critical applications.
Net Civata also ranks the automotive industry as a principal end-market and hopes to interest foreign
customers, while leading bolts and fasteners manufacturer Berdan Civata foresees increasing domestic and international demand for Turkish suppliers’ products.
Bursa-based Bolt Bağlantı Elemanları already exports one-third of its output to European customers. The firm is a leading manufacturer of bolts, screws, pins, rivets and studs for the automotive, white goods, construction and furniture markets, as well as supplying distributors.
Turkish suppliers of fastener manufacturing equipment and products will also be represented. Making
its Fastener Fair Turkey debut will be Sermet Kalip, manufacturer of cold forming machines and tools.
Of the companies exhibiting at Fastener Fair Turkey, around half will be foreign, representing 19 countries and underlining the international nature of the event.
Among fastener suppliers participating will be Plogsties, with a product range that includes MAThreadTM screws, nuts, hexagon bolts, pins, axles, rivets and washers. The HEICO group will be represented by HEICO Befestigungstechnik, specialising in upholstery nails, decorative nails and security nails principally for the furniture industry.
Foreign suppliers of manufacturing technologies will be prominent. They include German tools specialist Neoboss, targeting manufacturers of nuts, and Dimac, Italian supplier of machines to inspect and sort fasteners coming off the production line. They are among 60 companies that will be taking part in Fastener Fair Turkey for the first time.
Offering materials for fastener manufacturers will be Stahlalpine (Turkey), representing voestalpine Wire Rod Austria GmbH, which is just bringing on stream the world’s most innovative wire rod rolling mill.
Titmeyer group companies will be participating, including Baker & Finnemore, UK manufacturer of Starlock push-on fasteners. Sharing the group’s stand will be riveting tools specialist Rivetec from the Czech Republic. Leading construction fixings group Rawlplug is another company making its first Fastener Fair Turkey appearance.
