The Interflex team are looking forward to attending the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders’ (SMMT) Regional Forum – Focus on the North East, which takes place on Thursday 5th May at the Stadium of Light in Sunderland.

Showcasing the latest in NVH technology

At this event, we’ll be sharing our range of innovative and high quality NVH and sealing solutions to reduce the impact of air, water, dust and noise in vehicles. In particular, we’ll be focusing on Ocean, our new lightweight material, which significantly enhances acoustic absorption in vehicles, and can also be used to provide solutions to noise issues in the automotive, rail, marine and construction sectors.

As well as demonstrating the quality and versatility of this fantastic product, we’ll also be showcasing Ocean’s important benefits in terms of sustainability. The material is made from 75% recycled polyester and is recyclable at the end of its long lifespan. Not only that, Ocean has the added benefit of being manufactured in Europe, which means users can reduce their carbon footprint in this competitive sector.

Sharing knowledge and experience

As well as offering the opportunity to showcase the latest innovations at Interflex, this event is a great chance to share a platform for discussion with industry colleagues, including vehicle manufacturers and global and local suppliers. As the SMMT is the leading voice of the UK motor industry, this event offers the ideal opportunity for networking.

As we emerge from one of the most challenging chapters in the history of car manufacturing, it will be great to focus on the future, while being able to talk to fellow professionals about new developments in the automotive manufacturing sector in person again. After such a turbulent two years, we will be particularly interested to hear the thoughts of Alan Johnson, vice president of Nissan UK Sunderland Plant, in his keynote address to delegates. We are also looking forward to sessions focusing on how businesses are responding to the challenge of net zero, levelling up opportunities and thoughts on the development of products and technologies that will help strengthen the automotive industry.
