DMC shortlisted in national manufacturing awards

Digital Manufacturing Centre

8th September 2022

The Digital Manufacturing Centre (DMC) has been shortlisted in two categories at this year’s Make UK Manufacturing Awards. Overcoming the immense challenge of establishing the business during the COVID-19 pandemic, the DMC is a proud finalist in both the Developing Future Talent and Innovation categories.

The Make UK Manufacturing Awards 2022 showcase manufacturers who have delivered exceptional work, celebrating their effort, dedication and resilience. These two nominations recognise the ground-breaking nature of the DMC and its pioneering approach to engineering-led commercial additive manufacturing (AM), alongside its commitment to inspiring and enabling the next generation of STEM professionals.

The winners will be announced at the Make UK Regional Dinner for the Midlands and East on the evening of 18 October. The prestigious event is an opportunity for manufacturing professionals to network with peers, hear from inspirational industry speakers and celebrate their peers.

Kieron Salter, CEO of the DMC, commented: “Right from the outset, we aspired to create an AM business that offered more than any other company – a pioneering facility that brought together an expert team, cutting-edge technologies and a revolutionary engineering-led approach.

“These two nominations are testament to the fantastic work our team has put in since the facility opened in 2021. It is wonderful to see our efforts in enabling STEM education being recognised by the industry, as it is something we have worked hard to deliver.”

The DMC is an advanced production facility created to harness the disruptive potential of AM. It enables the development of pioneering and innovative technologies across the UK’s most advanced industries, including aerospace, space, defence, automotive, motorsport, medtech, marine and energy. The DMC embraces Industry 4.0 principles and is leading the establishment of an advanced manufacturing supply chain in the UK.
