Celebration and challenge were themes very much to the fore at the Manufacturing Technologies Association’s (MTA’s) 2014 Annual Dinner & Awards held on 6th February at the ICC in Birmingham.
The Keynote of the evening was the speech given by MTA President Mark Ridgway OBE. Mr Ridgway set out the new horizons that are emerging in engineering based manufacturing and challenged his audience to explore them. He said:
As excitement mounts for MACH 2014 the latest news is that World land speed record holder and Project Director for the Bloodhound Supersonic Car (SSC) Richard Noble OBE will be on the start line to open the Exhibition.
Bloodhound has long been on the floor plan but the announcement that Richard will be opening the event is great news. Many MACH Exhibitors are involved with the Bloodhound SSC project and MACH 2014 is the third time that the team themselves will be at the Show.
