News release, June 4, 2019: Macfab Manufacturing, an international supplier of precision components and sub-assemblies, is joining forces with the Ontario government’s Export Business Services Branch, together with other Ontario companies, to participate at the 53rd International Paris Air Show, held June 17-23. The Ontario Pavilion will be located in Hall 3 – C60.
The Paris Air Show began over a hundred years ago. It is the largest and longest-running aerospace trade show in the world, expected this year to attract over 2300 exhibitors from 48 countries, representing virtually every facet of the commercial, civil and defence aviation sectors.
Macfab will showcase its development and production resources and services, focusing specifically on the space and satellite industry, one of the company’s core market sectors. “We bring over a dozen years of experience to the table in this market,” says Macfab’s business development director Joe Magyar. “The Paris Air Show is a great opportunity for us to connect with new prospects as well as many of our current customers, and we’re especially excited to be part of the Ontario government’s presentation.”
Ontario has been represented at the Paris Air Show for over 13 years. “This year Ontario will have its strongest presence to date,” says Rita Patlan, Area Director, International Trade Programs Division, Ontario Ministry of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade. “There will be 18 exhibitors within our pavilion. Another eight companies are exhibiting separately from our display, and I know of at least 18 other companies that will be attending as well.”
In addition to its pavilion, the Ontario government will schedule B2B meetings and support several events, providing additional opportunities for its participating companies to connect with prominent business leaders and government officials.
“For international buyers, Ontario’s message is a compelling one,’ says Rita Patlan. “There are Ontario-made components and systems on virtually every aircraft in the world, and many of our key players will be in Paris with us, so they can meet face to face. Our job is to bring buyers together with Ontario businesses. We are happy to be working this year with Macfab as part of our business development efforts.”
