Shimtech Group to Debut at Farnborough International Airshow 2012
Shimtech Industries, the specialist international aerospace group, today announces that it will be exhibiting for the first time at the Farnborough International Airshow (“FIA”) 2012. The show will take place from the 9th to the 15th July 2012.

FIA is the largest truly global event of its kind and represents a unique platform for some 1,400 exhibitors from the aerospace, defence, space and security sectors to showcase and demonstrate aircraft, equipment and technologies.
Taking place every other year, FIA 2010 was attended by over 120,000 trade visitors with exhibiting companies announcing order figures of US$47bn during the show.
