Everything You Need to Know About Northern Manufacturing 2017

For the third year in a row, DJ Assembly will be heading across the Pennines to exhibit at Northern Manufacturing (Stand D37), one of the United Kingdom’s most important trade events for the electronics industry.

The two-day exhibition will take place on September 27th and 28th and will be held at EventCity in Manchester, one of the largest conference venues located in the north of England.

Although still in its formative years when compared to its southern counterpart, Northern Manufacturing has quickly established itself as a must-attend event within engineering, manufacturing and technology sectors. Last year’s exhibition attracted over three-hundred service providers to Manchester and combined traditional showcases with seminars and high-profile product launches.

DJ Assembly at Northern Manufacturing 2017

Members of the DJ team will be on hand throughout the event, showcasing our previous manufacturing and design work for some of the UK’s most innovative OEMs. As well as display our engineering ingenuity, we will also be there to demonstrate how we can provide a complete assembly service and unlock additional value from your manufacturing programme.

For over twenty years we have been helping businesses and manufacturers bring projects to life by offering market-leading electronic manufacturing services. Last year, people who visited our stand were taken aback by the steps we had made to set our PCB design capabilities apart over the previous eighteen months and we can’t wait to showcase other value-added services this time around.

“Many of the companies that we speak on a daily basis want to know if we can oversee an entire project and have the expertise to improve a product from a manufacturing and design point of view,” explains Sales Manager Bill Skelton.

“By having a wealth of experience in multiple high-technology sectors, such as medical research and optics, we are able to show people just how we’ve added value throughout the entire production process; from the design and prototyping stages, through to our ability to offer on-demand call-offs and a tailored delivery schedule.”

By making time to speak to one of our representatives, you will find out first-hand how DJ Assembly can help your business. Be it a long-term project in need of continuous guidance or a quick production run of a pre-existing design, we can help. And with IPC-trained staff (to Level 3), we provide a class-leading support and assembly service.

So, what would you like to help us design, test and create next?

Getting There

EventCity is located near to all of Manchester’s major road networks, making it extremely easy to get to by car.

Most traffic will arrive from the M60, the Manchester Ring Motorway. Whether heading clockwise or counter-clockwise, the junction you’ll need to leave the M60 on is Junction 9 (A5081). After exiting, follow signs for Barton Dock Road.

Theoretically, you could also exit the M60 at Junction 10. However, given that this is the main entrance route for traffic heading to the Trafford Centre, you’d have to fight your way through the hordes of shoppers before you get through to EventCity.

The postcode you’ll need for satellite navigation systems is M17 8AS, which should lead you straight to the event’s main car-parking areas located immediately off Phoenix Way.

There are over 3,000 free car parking spaces on site. And if it’s really busy, you could always park in the TraffordCity overflow car park which has an additional 10,000 spaces. Basically, finding somewhere to leave your car shouldn’t be a problem.

There are a number of train stations near to EventCity, with the closest three being Trafford Park, Humphrey Park and Urmston. However, services stop infrequently at these stations – roughly once every two hours during the week

However, most attendees arriving by rail will likely either pass through or terminate at one of Manchester’s main stations, those being Manchester Piccadilly and Manchester Victoria. It is advisable to depart here and then either jump in a taxi or take a bus to EventCity.

For up-to-date timetables, please visit the National Rail’s website.

From Manchester Victoria: Take either the 100 or 110 service, departing at the Trafford Centre Bus Station. From the Trafford Centre, EventCity is a ten-minute walk

From Manchester Piccadilly: Make the short hop to the Piccadilly Gardens Bus Station (Stand K) and take the 250, which will drop you off outside of EventCity.

There are additional bus routes that take people to the Trafford Centre, EventyCity and other nearby locations. Other services that you could use are the 18, 247 and X50, though we recommend that you plan your journey in advance. The Transport for Greater Manchester website will have all the information you need:
