Newsletter Listing intro for week 26

Welcome to the Friday Brief for the week ending 26th June.

Tuesday was National Women in Engineering Day. With the ratio of female employees in engineering as low as 6% by some estimates, the day aims to raise awareness of careers within the industry and celebrate the success of outstanding female engineers.

Paul O’Donnell, Head of External Affairs at the MTA, travelled to Brussels this week for a CECIMO meeting on 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing. This key manufacturing technology area is a growing part of the MTA’s membership, and one we are keen to foster. For those involved in this sector there is also news of the dedicated 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing Zone at MACH 2016.

The MTA’s CEO, James Selka, also visited Europe this week, including a visit to MTA Member PH Horn in Germany. There is news below of their growing production facility and new headquarters.

A few weeks ago we gave details of the 2041 Antarctica expedition, one of whose members was supported by the MTA. The third and final part of his report can be found in the story below.

The CBI AGM is next week. The MTA is a member of the organisation and has recently been working with it to ensure the new Government continues some of the industrial policies of the coalition. There are details of changes at the CBI below.

Have a good weekend.

South Pole Update

You may recall we reported recently on the 2041 expedition to the Antarctic. The expedition was supported by a number of different businesses including the MTA and Members.

Below is the third and final instalment of Charlie Drew’s report for the MTA. Charlie will also be deliveries talks for the MTA in the near future- details will be published soon.

Update from the CBI

Update from the CBI

Paul Dreschler will succeed Sir Mike Rake as CBI president. CBI members will be asked to endorse his appointment at the AGM on 13 July. Paul brings an impressive breadth of experience and is a fantastic advocate for businesses of all sizes. And, as we look across the major issues on the political landscape, his nomination undoubtedly comes at a critical time for business.

Paul Horn GmbH Doubles in size

Paul Horn GmbH Doubles in size

James Selka, MTA CEO, recently travelled to Germany to visit the Headquarters of MTA Member Horn Cutting Tools. HORN, the tool and carbide specialist based in Tübingen, is doubling its capacity by adding 12,000 m² of new production space. By the time it is ready for occupation at the end of 2016, a total of 55 million euros will have been invested in the new site, which is located close to the existing production facilities – 30 million euros in the building and 25 million in state-of-the-art production technology.

National Women in Engineering Day

National Women in Engineering Day

This Tuesday saw National Women in Engineering Day take place. The day is promoted by the Women’s Engineering Society and is dedicated to raising the profile and celebrating the achievements of women in engineering.

The campaign caused a stir on twitter as engineering firms large and small joined in by showing their support.
