A Hampshire manufacturing firm is following up global business leads after its most successful Farnborough International Air Show so far.

Fareham-based Barnbrook Systems made new contacts and held talks with prospective clients and international partners at the world famous event.

The company – which took its largest delegation so far to the event – also welcomed Government Ministers and VIPs to their stand as it marked its 40th anniversary.

Managing director Tony Barnett said: “The air show was incredibly busy, especially in the UK Pavilion where we were based.

“We had our best event so far and made some valuable contacts with potential business partners and clients from the UK, Europe and further afield.

“The international interest was a real vote of confidence in British business as we approach Brexit and shows that we have nothing of which to be afraid.”

Tony added: “Many years of experience has showed us that the real value of the air show is in following up all of these conversations and seeing if we can develop some positive business relationships.

“Having such a successful show was a very fitting way to mark our 40th anniversary.”

Barnbrook Systems had its own stand within the Farnborough Aerospace Consortium section of the UK Pavilion.

Visitors to the Barnbrook stand included Business Secretary Greg Clark, Transport Minister Jesse Norman, Fylde MP Mark Menzies, Stafford MP Jeremy Lefroy and Lib Dem peer Baroness Randerson.

Tony, who is director of the FAC, was among the business leaders to give feedback about the economy to Bank of England Governor Mark Carney when he visited the FAC stand.
