British manufacturing companies wanted for Industry 4.0 trade delegation to Germany

Wednesday 13 April 2016

The German-British Chamber of Industry & Commerce is organising a trade delegation trip to Germany from 20-24 June 2016 as part of a project to promote Industry 4.0, also known as the fourth Industrial Revolution.

Industry 4.0 technologies allow strong customisation of products and highly flexible mass production in a ‘smart’ factory. Participating companies will be provided with background information on this market sector and will have the opportunity to forge potential partnerships with German companies.

This fact-finding mission will lead British manufacturers to the south of Germany where they
will meet various representatives of south German companies already successfully working with Industry 4.0. As part of the varied programme for the week, they will also be able to attend Automatica, the international trade fair for automation and mechatronics in Munich, and gain an insight into future innovative developments presented by experts at the renowned Fraunhofer Institut Munich.

A minimum of eight British companies will be invited to travel to Germany. Participation in the delegation trip is free, but companies are required to cover travel to and accommodation costs in Germany.

Sven Riemann, Head of Marketing Services, said: “This is an exciting opportunity for British manufacturers to find out more about the application of these technologies, which have revolutionised production in Germany and are proving very cost-effective thanks to the ability to customise assembly lines. Meeting representatives of German companies is also an ideal way of finding potential business partners, whose expertise and experience can prove invaluable.”

The delegation trip is sponsored by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy in co-operation with Baden-Württemberg International, a regional development agency in southwest Germany.
