The presentations were received with enthusiasm from the audience.

Karen mentioned in reference to the event ‘BPF Rotational Moulders are a leading force, we are at the technological cutting edge with access to the UK’s great design facilities and first rate academic infrastructure. Our presentations clearly indicated this to the international audience with great effect’
