Government promotes UK manufacturing innovation

On September 7th, UK Business Minster Mark Prisk unveiled an exhibition of cutting edge products at the Department for Business Innovation and Skills (BIS), which includes products from world leading engineering company Renishaw plc.

The exhibition is the first in a planned rolling programme of themed displays demonstrating excellence in British design, engineering and manufacturing, and is designed to encourage a new generation of innovators.

The theme for the opening programme is the engineering supply chain and exhibits have been provided by JCB, one of the world's largest construction equipment manufacturers, as well as three other companies who are part of their supply chain: Renishaw, Craftsman Tools and machine tool manufacturer Mazak UK.

Business minister, Mark Prisk, (photo: right) said, “Britain is a world leader in manufacturing but if we are to inspire future generations we must do all we can to promote UK excellence. As a signal of our intent we have invited shining examples of British design, engineering and manufacture to showcase their products at the department.”

Renishaw was represented at the launch by Chris Pockett, group marketing services manager (photo: left) who said,  “We hope that this signifies a long-term commitment to present a more positive image of engineering and manufacturing which in turn will help encourage more young people to see them as an attractive career choice.”
