Sir David McMurtry, (photo: right) chairman and chief executive of global engineering company Renishaw plc, has been honoured with the prestigious General Pierre Nicolau Award by the International Academy for Production Engineering (CIRP).

The award, which was presented to Sir David at the Academy’s annual assembly in Pisa, Italy during August, is presented each year to individuals who have made significant and distinguished contributions within the field of production engineering.

The presentation of the Nicolau Award, which honours CIRP founder General Pierre Nicolau, was made by its president, professor Gerry Byrne, who said, “Sir David McMurtry has made very many significant contributions to the field of metrology, a subject that was of direct and great interest to General Nicolau. He is named as an inventor or co-inventor on some 47 Rolls Royce patents and on over 150 Renishaw inventions.”
