  • The Show’s Narrow Focus has Helped it Grow

One of the things that sets Elmia Subcontractor apart from other trade shows is that only subcontractors in the manufacturing industry may exhibit. Companies with numerous business segments may only exhibit and market products that are included in the show’s product register. The main categories in the product register are: A01 Manufacturing Methods, A02 Products and components, A03 Material, raw material and semi-finished products, A04 Design and Development, A05 Tools & Fixtures, A06 Organizations & Services. These guidelines are strictly enforced, and the focused nature of the show has led to its increased popularity and status as northern Europe’s leading trade show for manufacturing industry subcontractors.

  • The Swedish Market Holds Tremendous Opportunity for Manufacturers

Sweden is a highly developed industrial nation focused on modern high-tech manufacturing, and one of the world’s most innovative countries, thanks to good collaboration between academic research and industry. Swedish innovations such as the ball bearing, the zipper, dynamite, the adjustable wrench, the pacemaker, and Bluetooth have had massive global impact, and Sweden is one of only a few European countries to possess the entire value chain in automotive manufacturing, from suppliers of small components to OEM companies and vehicle manufacturers. Companies such as Volvo, ABB, Ericsson, Atlas Copco, Scania and SKF are just some of the big Swedish companies that are consistently on the lookout for new subcontractors.
