Newsletter Listing intro for week 29

Welcome to this week's Friday Brief

With the Olympics set to kick off next Friday all eyes are focussed on the UK and it represents an unrivalled opportunity to show what makes this country great.

That’s why we’d like to draw members’ attention to two fantastic initiatives. Firstly, the UKTI’s British Business Club, an excellent marketing and networking resource designed to help companies benefit from the business activity taking place in and around the Games.  Secondly, is the Make it in Great Britain manufacturing exhibition that opens next week. MTA member Yamazaki Mazak will be featuring in this show at the Science Museum, which runs throughout the Olympics and Paralympics.

We would also like to make members aware of the latest in the MTA’s on-going series of supply chain seminars. Tier 1 Aerospace company Messier Dowty and the MTA are partnering to deliver an unmissable opportunity to visit their plant at Gloucester and learn what they require as they look to base more of their supply chain work in the UK market. The event will take place on Tuesday September 18.  We’d also like to highlight the sustainability conference being organised by EMS that also takes place in September.

We spent last week at Farnborough Airshow and as well as meeting a lot of established and potential members we also saw Rolls- Royce unveil something extraordinary: an engine that will never reach for the skies. Why? Because it’s made entirely out of LEGO. You can read more about why it was built in the brief that follows.

Meeting with and bringing more members into the fold is an important part of what we do and as such, the MTA would like to welcome our newest members Jim Underwood and Barry Kennett from Restormel Machine Limited in Cornwall. Restormel is a sub-contract engineering facility established in 1982 whose specialist area of expertise is CNC Turning and CNC Milling offering high quality machined components.

We'd also like to extend that welcome to our 700th twitter follower, Pera Technology. If you want to follow the MTA too you can do so at @MTA_UK.

Have a great weekend. Rumour has it there may even be some sunshine.

Yamazaki Mazak has been chosen as one of only 39 companies to represent British manufacturing at the Make it in Great Britain exhibition which opens at London’s Science Museum next week. Other companies exhibiting include the likes of Mars and McLaren.

The free exhibition which runs from July 24 – September 9- throughout the Olympic and Paralympic Games, aims to encourage young people to consider a career in engineering and raise awareness of the vital role that manufacturing plays in the UK economy.
