J A Harrison & Co Ltd attend the Advanced Engineering Show 2012

 On the 7th & 8th November 2012 J A Harrison & Co Ltd exhibited at the Advanced Engineering Show at Birmingham’s NEC. Despite trading for over 100 years this is the first time anyone can remember the company attending such an exhibition.


Whilst it is generally accepted that everyone knows J A Harrison & Co Ltd are the UK’s leading supplier of gaskets and seals, it is perhaps less well known that we are rapidly becoming a significant player in the field of PTFE & Engineering Plastics.


We decided it was about time we made sure people knew about just what our Engineering Plastics division could do and started looking for a suitable exhibition to set out our stall. Having decided on the Advanced Engineering Shows’, Composites Show as our first venue; all that needed to be done was to design and purchase a stand and assemble all the paraphernalia that goes with such an undertaking.  Jamie Hill, Technical Sales Manager and Paul Ratcliffe, PTFE Manager set about assembling all that was needed.


Jamie worked with Quadrant 2 Design using their ‘Prestige System’ to come up with our fabulous exhibition stand and Paul got to work with Digital Transcendent Ltd to come up with our stunning HD videos.

Thanks to both company’s and to Lawrence at eMarketing Excellence for their patience and inspiration in guiding us through the process.


After months of preparation the time arrived to head for the NEC. Paul headed down on Tuesday 6th November for set up, a new experience to them both but by early that evening the stand was up and ready for the big day and we left the exhibition organisers to finish laying the carpets and sprucing up the hall.Our Stand - ready for the start of the Exhibition

Finally, the big day was here and Paul & Jamie arrived an hour before doors opened to make sure the stand was just as we wanted it and to await the arrival of the shows visitors. Over the Wednesday and the Thursday of the exhibition they found themselves very busy with a varied assortment of interested parties to the stand, including staff from both our Manchester and Cardiff offices.

Paul & Jamie highlighted our abilities to compression mould both PTFE and PEEK and to machine both of these materials as well as a wide range of Engineering Plastics using our in house facilities.

At the end of the two days and having safely dismantled the stand they had an armful of leads ready to follow up in the subsequent weeks.


We would like to thank Jini and her team at UK Tech Events for their excellent organisational skills and for the tea and cakes that kept those manning the stands going.


The show has certainly shown us that British industry is still active despite a difficult recession and we look forward to speaking to and working with all those that were kind enough to visit our stand.
