Last night saw Renishaw win the prestigious Company of the Year category at the annual NMI Awards. The award, sponsored by IC Resources is given to a company of special recognition operating in the UK which ‘stands out for good reason.’
In presenting the award, NMI CEO Derek Boyd said: “This year’s winner is considered to be a hidden gem in the Great British crown. It is a world leader in additive manufacturing and the only UK business that makes industrial machines using metal powder. It supplies products and services in applications as diverse as jet engine and wind turbine manufacture to dentistry and brain surgery.
“With 16% of revenue spent on engineering and R&D, it also has a commitment to the future and excellence. Also worthy of note is that it is also encouraging to see that ‘people’ are a significant element of its strategy.”
The annual awards celebrate the year’s key electronics innovations, people and companies from across the UK and Ireland and this year were held at London’s Hilton Bankside Hotel.
The Awards and Gala Dinner, which saw the electronics systems trade body’s 20th anniversary celebrations was also attended by the Rt Hon Matt Hancock MP, the Minister of State responsible for digital policy.
