News: NAMTEC Manufacturing Forum attracts over 100 industry leaders


Over 100 industry leaders and guests attended the prelaunch of The NAMTEC Manufacturing Forum held earlier this month at the Cutlers' Hall, Sheffield.

Speakers for the event included Graham Honeyman from Sheffield Forgemasters who gave an inspirational presentation on the manufacturing prowess of the local organisation and Adrian Bull from Westinghouse who provided an excellent update on the progress of civil nuclear power generation in the UK.

Organised by the National Metals Technology Centre (NAMTEC)in Rotherham, the Manufacturing Forum will provide an unrivalled opportunity for members to explore new market and technology development opportunities in high growth sectors including Oil & Gas, Aerospace & Defence and Energy Generation.

Member services and benefits include business intelligence, supply chain information, facilitated attendance at exhibitions and support for international trade.

Jeremy Godley, business development manager for Schmolz + Bickenbach UK Ltd, said: "We are pleased that the NAMTEC Manufacturing Forum is now bringing together the various manufacturing focus groups under one banner. The increased membership will create further networking opportunities which will lead to more business."

The Minister of State for Trade and Investment, Lord Green, will address members and guests at the Inaugural Annual Dinner and National Launch of the NAMTEC Manufacturing Forum on September 28 2011, to be held at Tankersley Manor. Lord Green will be joined by such industry leaders as Rolls Royce, Siemens, Scottish and Southern Energy, David Brown Gear Systems and AMEC to discuss future potential for the manufacturing community and to consider the actions needed to secure growth.

Dr Alan McLelland of NAMTEC said "As the UK's leading support organisation for metals engineering and manufacturing companies, NAMTEC will draw the communities together to focus on the role of metals engineering within a manufacturing led growth and recovery strategy. The presence of Lord Green at the Dinner highlights the importance of this event and the benefits of Forum membership."
