News: Nikken Kosakusho supporting Bromley in Olympic bid


Expert tooling supplier Nikken Kosakusho Europe is supporting former World British Skeleton Bobsled Champion, Kristan Bromley as he pursues his dream of Olympic Gold in 2014.

With headquarters on the Barbot Hall Industrial Estate and a technical office and demonstration / testing facility at The Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP) in Rotherham, Nikken enjoys a global dominance of the rotary table technology market and supply manufacturers operating in the aerospace, defence, motorsport, automotive and medical sectors.

Nikken is supplying an essential component allowing Kristan to devote his attention to manufacturing the best possible skeleton bobsled for the 2013 / 2014 World Cup Season that is rapidly followed up by the Olympic skeleton bobsled competition in Sochi, Russia.

Also based on the AMP, Bromley, specialises in athlete-focused engineering technology, with its state-of-the-art test facility that helps finesse sporting talent.

They supply current World Champion Shelley Rudman and Kristan Bromley, company co founder and CEO, himself a triple Olympian and "triple crown" winner in 2008. Over the past few years their Team GB skeleton athletes have secured over 20 World cup medals.

Tony Bowkett, group managing director of Nikken, said: "Nikken's support for Kristan through Bromley Technologies makes perfect sense. Currently, our latest X-Treme milling solution is delivering outstanding performance for the leading players in the aerospace sector as it revolutionises their production environment.

"As a global company, Nikken has worked hard to deliver world-record breaking results that no other available solution can match. Furthermore, we are continuing to develop X-Treme, constantly pushing new boundaries and setting new standards. Kristan has consistently shown that he too can deliver amazing results through hard work and constant development.

"I am certain that Nikken's support for Bromley Technologies will help Kristan to reach an incredible fourth Winter Games for Great Britain and ultimately realise his personal dream of winning a medal in every world competition. At Nikken we consistently strive for the pursuit of excellence and Kristan's personal challenge perfectly mirrors our corporate goal."

Kristan added that the support "will enable Bromley to continually push the boundaries of performance and aim towards our goal of manufacturing the fastest Skeleton sled in the world. Thanks to Nikken's incredible support and generosity, I am confident that we will focus our developments over the last three years on creating a step change for the 2013/2014 season in what everyone knows is the most extreme and thrilling event at a Winter Games.

"Ever since I started the sport, my goal was to try and win a medal in every major competition. I have continually challenged myself every year and I have been fortunate to have had a 16 year career where I have achieved most of these goals. It's been a long road, but I have a chance left to achieve Olympic gold, that's the dream."

Kristan and Shelley are pictured entering the "Hall of Champions" at their training base at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield (EIS Sheffield).
