News: Macalloy fly the flag in Singapore


Rotherham exporters, Macalloy will join a delegation of local business leaders and members of the Sheffield city region (SCR) Inward Investment team and travel together to Singapore next month. They will promote the region's excellence in advanced manufacturing, particularly in the aerospace, oil and gas sectors for which Singapore is the most important market hub in Asia.

The mission is timed to coincide with the Singapore Air Show to explore export opportunities in the sector capitalising on the regions strength in manufacturing aerospace components whilst selling the region as an inward investment proposition.

Based in Dinnington, Macalloy are world leaders in design, manufacture and supply of threaded bar and cable systems to engineering and construction projects across the globe.

Macalloy 460 galvanised tie rods were supplied in a range of diameters to support the roof canopies along the bayfront of the $5.5bn Marina Bay Sands development in Singapore (pictured) that was constructed on land reclaimed from the sea.

Macalloy tie rods are also used to support the 35m high glass fa├žade at the access to the MRT station at Singapore's Changi airport terminal.

William Beckett, MD of William Beckett Plastics and chairman of the South Yorkshire International Trade Forum (SYITF) and trade delegation lead said: "A major development in the city region has been the willingness of all the different trade support organisations to work together with the agreed aim of promoting the skills and expertise in the region and to focus on target market sectors having the greatest export growth potential.

"Singapore was identified as a perfect example of this strategy and in March last year I went there on behalf of the SYITF to explore the opportunities for both export trade and inward investment specifically in the aerospace, oil and gas sectors.

"Having subsequently conducted a significant market research exercise in mapping Singapore companies in these sectors, we are now able to match them with companies in the SCR.

"Companies on the mission will benefit from having this information, which will give them an excellent opportunity to increase their export trade to the region."

David Grey MBE and Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) Board member overseeing Inward Investment, added: "The Singapore Airshow attracts decision makers in the aerospace sector, and we will hold pre-arranged meetings with companies who have expansion plans and are looking at the UK as a European base.

"The ability of the AMRC to design systems in order to machine aerospace components far faster and cheaper than is possible through traditional methods, has attracted world-wide attention.

"We want to capitalise on that and encourage companies to make the move and set up here, near that valued talent pool.

"The supply chain for the aerospace sector is well served by this City Region, and this is an added attraction to potential investors.

"The Inward Investment team will be making that compelling case in Singapore."
