News: Bromley Technologies up for innovation award


Rotherham-based Bromley Technologies has been named as a finalist in the innovation category at The Star's Business Awards 2010.

Set up by brothers Kristan and Richard Bromley and run with chief operating officer Mike Maddock, Bromley Technologies is based at the Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP).

The company has three world, European and Olympic winners as its public faces - Kristan Bromley, the skeleton's first ever World and European champion, 2006 Olympic silver medallist and current world number two in the skeleton, Shelley Rudman, and Nicola Minichiello, part of the first British women's pair to win the World championship in 2009.

All three represented Great Britain at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics.

The company specialises in athlete-focused engineering technology, with its state-of-the-art test facility that helps finesse sporting talent.

Their philosophy is to centre athletes, sports practitioners and enthusiasts at the heart of the innovation process and surround them with an extremely high calibre team of engineers, technologists and scientists with proven track records in the Olympic, Formula One Motorsport and aerospace environments.

Bromley will be up against Sheffield's Zoo Digital for the award, sponsored by Business Link, that will be announced on September 27.

Bromley Technologies Ltd will be sharing some of the secrets of their international sporting success in a global web seminar later this month.

A web seminar, in association with American company Mentor Graphics, will see Professor Kristan Bromley, CEO of Bromley Technologies illustrate how advanced engineering design and simulation software has helped the company become one of the world's top suppliers of elite winter sports equipment to professional athletes.

Using Mentor's Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software has enabled Bromley to have a direct influence on the aerodynamic usability and reliability of their skeleton bobsleds. This has shortened the design lifecycle and lead to optimal, more robust designs, all within extremely demanding competitive sporting timescales where the difference between winning and losing can be measured in fractions of a second or a few millimeters.

The webinar will take place at 7pm UK time on September 30.

I see companies all of the time block innovations because they can’t get their heads around the benefit of a new way of doing something--- the status quo police are out to get you. See this posting in Forbes magazine
