Addition Design has this month opened its first office space in South Yorkshire’s advanced manufacturing hub, the AMP Technology Centre in Catcliffe.
The design and research start-up has taken up 1,000 sq ft of space in building number three, a 32,000 sq ft facility at the Advanced Manufacturing Park.
Established in February 2017, Addition Design is a joint venture with Chester Medical Solutions (CMS), a Cheshire-based pharmaceutical and medical solutions company.
With offices in North Wales and Israel (and a new US base in Boston, MA set to open this year) CMS specialises in manufacturing and packaging materials for the pharmaceutical industry.
With CMS’ strong network in the North West, and Tom Fripp’s knowledge of design and the advanced manufacturing sector, Addition Design is able to offer an end-to-end service, from design to completion.
Addition’s new space in the AMP Technology Centre is split into three rooms; an office space, workshop and meeting room, all of which will allow the company to develop both in design and research.
Tom Fripp, Design Director of Addition, said: “As a high value engineering firm, it’s incredibly important for us to be based at the AMP Technology Centre.
“Being located alongside the likes of McLaren and Boeing is a huge draw to our customers, and to be within walking distance of these globally successful companies supports our vision for the future.”
He added: “We have built up such a strong network in Sheffield and the ten-minute drive to and from the city centre means that we have fantastic access to the engineering talent pool coming from the two universities.”
