​Railway Exhibition Has Loads To Offer for Enthusiasts And Business Alike,

Johannesburg, 14 June 2017 

Africa's largest model railway exhibition rolled into the Sandton Convention Centre and Scaw Metals will not miss the opportunity to showcase its products.

The annual Africa Rail Show, the continent's longest running and most successful railways event which has been running for 20 years will take place on June 13 to 14. It will give exhibitors opportunities to find solutions to the industry's challenges as well as open or form new lucrative relationships and partnerships and source and invest in new railway solutions.

"Scaw Metals is excited to have an opportunity to showcase our products to industry as well as potential global customers. It is through events such as this one that our industry is able to grow," said Markus Hannemann, CEO of Scaw Metals Group.

"We are delighted that so many people will able to join us and enjoy the exhibition.  Building on the previous year's success we hope that this year's show will even be better," said Hannemann.

Scaw Metals is one of Africa's leading manufacturers of specialised, high quality cast products used in the mining, railway, power and general engineering industries.

As one of the country's most prestigious railway exhibitions, the event is expected to attract hundreds of visitors.

For Scaw and its industry peers, the Africa Rail Show is an annual opportunity to meet and do business with new and existing customers, as well as gain access into African railway markets that are traditionally difficult to penetrate.
