Silverstone Technology Cluster business members have hosted senior figures and tech companies allied to the US Army’s ‘DEVCOM’ technology procurement division during a further show of networking between the two organisations.

Nine companies, each a finalist in the US DEVCOM’s high-profile xTechInternational competition, visited Delta Cosworth, the Digital Manufacturing Centre, KWSP and Silverstone Composites at their premises at Silverstone Park.

The companies were represented by 25 individuals from across Europe, the US and Canada. Also in attendance were officials from DEVCOM Atlantic plus the US Air Force, Army, Navy, Army xTech Program and even the US Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Ground Vehicle Systems Centre (DEVCOM GVSC).

Silverstone Park was the only location other than London where the US Army took its xTechInternational finalists during the competition’s finals week.

“The Silverstone Technology Cluster was a great choice to include as part of the US Army’s xTechInternational finals week,” commented Ryan Decker, US Army DEVCOM Lead for xTech International 2023: Advanced Manufacturing and Materials.

“Our team wanted to expose our joint services experts in advanced manufacturing and materials to the cutting-edge technologies, near this year’s host city of London.

“After learning more about the STC and the impressive technology solutions being developed, we decided it would be beneficial for our competition finalists to join as well.

“We hope the experience provided valuable networking opportunities for all involved. The trip was a success and helped build excitement for the days to follow.”

“This visit marked another milestone in our relationship with DEVCOM,” said STC CEO Pim van Baarsen.

“The feedback from DEVCOM has been very positive. They could be interested in doing more and maybe our companies could visit DEVCOM teams in the future.

“Certainly, there were a lot of questions and people were engaged. Our guests had all heard of the place Silverstone and were Impressed by what they saw and heard from the four STC members.”
