Sector Focus: Manufacturing & Engineering, March 2022

Joined by our Sponsors M-CNC we are delighted to bring you this event focusing on the Manufacturing and Engineering industry. 
  Raising awareness of UK manufacturing
Based in Bridgwater, M-CNC Engineering have been supplying the aerospace, defence, oil & gas and motorsport sectors with precision manufacturing since 2011. Major investment in technology, staff, resource and location has paid dividends, attracting interest from industry heavyweights including Rolls Royce and Airbus.

Discussions and demonstrations will take place on the innovation in the UK manufacturing sector and highlight the shared responsibility of businesses, enterprises, schools and colleges to inspire the next generation of master craftsmen.

For Business Development Manager, Leigh Howarth, engineering has shaped his career path and he’s developed a passion for championing the future of UK manufacturing. “My career in engineering started when a teacher took the time to fire my imagination! They saw the potential in me that others didn’t and opened my eyes to a world of creativity and innovation.”, comments Leigh, “We need to inspire a new breed of engineer who will continue to pioneer and shape the UKs undisputed heritage of manufacturing excellence.”

Strong relationships with business critical suppliers such as DMG Mori, ongoing apprenticeship programmes with neighbouring Bridgwater & Taunton College and a host of B2B trade events and networking support the continued success of M-CNC Engineering. However, the longevity of UK manufacturing doesn’t simply rely on advances in technology and process.

Leigh will also explain how that ‘shared responsibility’ was manifested in Somerset’s first Festival of British Engineering & Manufacturing – a two day manufacturing expo planned and hosted by M-CNC Engineering.
