On the last day of the symposium, Carwood Birmingham will open the doors to its state-of-the-art diesel systems plant. Starting as a small electrical car parts business, Carwood Motor Units Ltd. quickly expanded over the years and diversified into the diesel and auto electrical markets. Today, the assembly of its diesel parts, such as injectors, is carried out in ultramodern Class 7 clean rooms, which are unique in the U.K., and one of the most advanced facilities of its type in the world. The assembly suite ensures OE standards are maintained at the highest level with particle contamination limits down to 0.5 microns, resulting into some of the industry’s lowest warranty rates.
In addition to receiving all the latest information from the industry, there also will be opportunities for socialization and networking. During the COREMania Party on Wednesday, April 20, attendees will enjoy music as well as cultural food and drinks at a traditional English pub in the heart of Birmingham.
A gala dinner on Thursday evening will mark APRA’s 25th European Symposium. The evening will start with a cocktail reception and continue with a three-course meal and a surprise act to entertain guests throughout the evening.
