Mr Mohan Sangha of Sangha Metrology, pictured here (centre) with David Thomson and Martin Weeks of Mitutoyo UK, has been elected as a Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. This prestigious recognition is only given to engineers who have made a substantial contribution to the engineering profession. Mr Sangha, who is a Chartered Engineer, founded Sangha Metrology, which manufactures and supplies 3-point and 2-point standard and special internal diameter bore gauges, 25 years ago. The company also has an investment casting facility in India.
Before setting up his own company, Mr Sangha worked for many years for Bowers. He has also been involved in setting up a factory for B&Q to supply free standing bath tubs from India and started the company Clearwater Collection in 1999. Under his Chairmanship Clearwater achieved a turnover £7m and Mr Sangha's world-wide patent attracted a £72,000 innovation grant.
Mr Sangha has also had a 20-year association with Mitutoyo - his company was the first outside Japan to supply a major product for world-wide distribution to Mitutoyo.
In recognition of his achievement he was invited by David Thomson, MD of Mitutoyo UK, for a celebratory lunch.
Mr Sangha said: "As a supplier and an associate of Mitutoyo I am very grateful for their recognition of my Fellowship Election which is one of the highest honours that the IMechE can bestow on a member."
