Professor Koen Lamberts, President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Sheffield, said: “This is a monumental achievement for Sheffield. Having a university in the North of England leading in engineering research income and investment is a tremendous boost for the Northern Powerhouse as we seek to boost the aerospace, nuclear and manufacturing sectors and rebalance the UK economy.
For Tinsley Bridge, working with Universities is vital in expanding our research and development capability and this makes a significant contribution to new product innovation.
Mark Webber, Managing Director said “It creates a powerful collaboration by connecting academic knowledge and the specialist facilities of a leading research institution with our internal innovation programmes. This de-risks and reduces time to market of new products targeted to create competitive advantage in global markets”.
“For us as an SME it is a huge asset to be able to seek the technical support on offer. Some of our large multinational customers have been astounded with the facilities at the University of Sheffield’s Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) only a mile away from our business. As a global, exporting business, having access to the AMRC reassures our customers that we can compete in the modern world.”
