On 21-23 May 2019, two of our engineers, Daniel Green (Engineering Manager) and Matt Reid  (Testing & Development Manager), attended the Automotive Testing Expo in Stuttgart, Germany. A major event in the automotive calendar taking place in two large conference halls, this event focuses on automotive testing including facility design, test rig design and novel components and devices.

In the interests of continual improvement and ensuring we are well placed to provide the most efficient and comprehensive solutions possible to our customers, SMT attended the Expo to investigate advancements in technologies and methodologies in the automotive testing world, focusing on test rig development, in-vehicle and on-rig NVH testing, plus, sourcing one-off specialist components for specific customer testing requirements. Our presence at the event enabled us to meet with several existing and potential customers and clients and reinforced our understanding of the focus and evolution within the industry.

Matt Reid, states, “The Expo was well organised, easy to get around and had some interesting companies with extremely useful products and services, I would recommend this show to anyone within the automotive testing industry.”
