Are you a machine builder or system integrator? Most of the companies featured on are suppliers to the machine building sector, but there are also companies that provide machine building services

Indeed, a number of people came to our stand at the Machine Building show to ask where they could find machine builders – so we directed them to our website. If machine builders and system integrators can benefit from the thousands of pages of news and articles on, there is no reason why they should not also find new customers via the site.

If your company is not yet listed in our directory and you would like us to add it, just send an email to and include your own contact details and a link to your website.
