Elektron Technology Predicts Custom Design Will Be a Top Trend at Southern Manufacturing and Electronics 2011

Demand for custom solutions expected to follow interest in waterproofing solutions at the last event

Romford, UK, - Elektron Technology, owner of the Arcolectric, Bulgin and Sifam electronics manufacturing brands, is predicting custom design solutions to be a key trend at the Southern Manufacturing and Electronics Exhibition 2011 next month.

Elektron Technology previously saw phenomenal levels of interest in waterproof switching and connectivity at Southern Manufacturing and Electronics, particularly in Bulgin's Buccaneer IP68 waterproof connectors, waterproof antennae and the EXPlora range of connectors. These components have since featured in a wide range of end user products from door entry systems to vehicle tracking systems as well as structural testing equipment and water flow measurement and are suitable for use in harsh, challenging outdoor environments.

For the Southern Manufacturing and Electronics 2011 show, the company is anticipating significant interest in its flexible, customer-driven solutions developed from its core technology platforms.

Stuart Hutchings, Marketing Manager at Elektron Technology, comments: "The Southern Manufacturing and Electronics show acts as a barometer for the manufacturing and design engineering industry. It was interesting to note that waterproofing attracted so much interest last time but it further proves the need for custom solutions to meet each customer's individual requirements. The flexibility and high levels of customization we offer our clients will be key as we continue to expand our customer base in 2011."

Elektron Technology will be at Southern Manufacturing and Electronics 2011 in Farnborough on February 16th-17th at stand D37. The first 100 visitors to the stand on each day of the event will receive a 9-LED waterproof torch in exchange for their business card. Please contact elektron@eml.com to arrange an appointment to meet the team at the event.
