M-CNC Precision Engineering to host second Festival of British Engineering and Manufacturing

M-CNC Precision Engineering, in conjunction with local Somerset schools, colleges, businesses and enterprises plans to showcase the very best of British engineering and manufacturing in the hope of inspiring the next generation of engineers.

The Festival of British Engineering and Manufacturing (FOBEM) is an invitation-only, two day event on July 6-7, which will be held at the company’s advanced manufacturing facility in Bridgwater. It will feature like-minded businesses and representatives from the UK engineering and manufacturing sectors, all hoping to inspire a new generation of precision engineers.

Students and teachers from local Somerset-based schools and colleges will have the opportunity to visit the M-CNC manufacturing facility and observe the latest industry cutting-edge technologies in action and have the opportunity to engage with a wide variety of industry professionals, businesses and enterprises.

Participating businesses and the entrepreneurs behind them, will be encouraged to engage and take questions from students and visitors, giving them first-hand insights and practical advice about our world-leading industry.

The Festival Of British Engineering and Manufacturing has an ambitious goal: to reveal the innovation and creativity within the industry and signpost the multiple career paths that are literally “engineering new horizons”.

M-CNC Business Development Manager, Leigh Howarth, said: “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. That’s the aim of this event. To inspire a new breed of engineer who will continue to pioneer and champion the UKs undisputed heritage of manufacturing excellence.”
