The purchasing companies set to attend SMMT’s Meet the Buyer 2014 have been announced.

Taking place in London on 25 June, Meet the Buyer aims to match OEM and Tier 1 buyers to suitable automotive supply chain companies, based on buyers’ sourcing requirements. Using the Automotive Supplier Finder, SMMT invites supply chain companies that meet buyer demands to Meet the Buyer events.

The list of confirmed buyers for 25 June is:

  • Aisin Europe
  • Aston Martin
  • BMW
  • Brose
  • CAB Automotive
  • Denso Manufacturing
  • Faurecia
  • Ford Europe
  • Futaba Industrial
  • General Motors
  • Jaguar Land Rover
  • Leyland Trucks
  • LuK
  • Nissan
  • Parker Hannifin
  • Penso UK
  • Sears Manufacturing
  • TATA Motors
  • Toyota
  • TRW

With vehicle manufacturing in the UK growing year-on-year, opportunities for UK-based suppliers to expand their businesses have never been more plentiful. Indeed, Brose – one of the purchasers at Meet the Buyer – has just announced the creation of 300 jobs in Coventry to cope with parts demand for the new Nissan Qashqai.
