Going large. Conex at Advanced Engineering

ConeX Portal is the home of great manufacturing connections and it’s no secret that organisations who are part of ConeX are thriving. Machinery & Manufacturing caught up with CEO of the platform, Sam Baynham, ahead of Advanced Engineering UK which takes place at the NEC 1-2 November 2023.

ConeX Portal UK is a members-only hub that is building a strong community of manufacturers, product developers, engineers and suppliers across the UK.  Founded in 2020 ConeX Portal has grown at great pace from it’s original 30 founding members.

“We’re passionate about UK Manufacturing and our mission is to ensure that UK engineering and manufacturing businesses thrive. The Conex portal not only forges connections but encourages them to collaborate in supporting entire manufacturing projects, says Sam.

A platform like no other. So how does it work?

“We have formed a community powered by a strong ethos of genuine likeminded industry experts. Nothing is hidden behind algorithms, this is NOT a directory or networking group, this is a skilled community who have access to projects.”
“We have every part of the supply chain covered, ConeX community get projects off the ground – and completed. With members who have extensive skill sets and capacity to meet the requirements and provide overall manufacturing solutions to large enterprises across aerospace, automotive, defence, medical​ sectors”

Together, we facilitate projects for new innovations, enterprise developments and the emerging green technologies that new and graduate businesses are driving forward. We believe that collaboration builds a brighter future.”
