Exhibitors and supporters of the upcoming Makers & Technology Festival have shown strong support for this year’s event.

“The Makers and Technology Festival is an opportunity for my company to showcase its innovations and achievements as part of a larger industry event. We are a second-generation steel fabrication company but in recent years we have collaborated with a number of inventors to manufacture unusual and high-tech products outside our normal market. Our local manufacturing industry is challenging, growing and exciting to work in,” said Tom Woods, Managing Director of TW Woods Construction.

Moly-Cop is proud to be a sponsor and exhibitor at the Ai Group Greater Hunter Makers and Technology Festival this year.  Our fully integrated steelmaking and manufacturing facilities at Waratah both foster and rely upon the deep experience and metallurgical knowledge of our people. The Moly-Cop team continue to produce and further develop our world leading range of grinding media and rail wheel products and services. I invite you to visit and experience our audio-visual and interactive displays at the festival,” said Michael Parker, General Manager Moly-Cop Australasia.

“Varley are proud to be a strong supporter of the Hunter Makers & Technology Festival. Our region has a rich diversity of enterprises that develop and make world leading innovative products and we need events like the Hunter Makers & Technology Festival to showcase this extraordinary local talent. People will be surprised by what is achieved in their own backyard.” Jeff Phillips, Managing Director, Varley Group.
