Lord Lieutenant pays visit to Agemaspark

South Yorkshire’s Lord Lieutenant Professor Dame Hilary Chapman has visited Doncaster precision engineering firm Agemaspark.

Dame Hilary, who spent her entire career in nursing, was shown around the factory at Agemaspark Ltd where the company’s latest innovative practices were on display.

MD Paul Stockhill said: “It was a real honour to welcome Dame Hilary to Doncaster. We were extremely proud to show her our latest technique, using 3D metal printing machinery, we deliver a highly efficient advanced manufacturing process through conformal cooling.

“The technique improves the efficiency of a mould by as much as 20 per cent, reducing the amount of energy required and the environmental impact of the process.

“She also took the time to talk to our team about their journey and we talked about our strong links with education and our apprenticeship approach to developing our workforce.”

Dame Hilary said: “It was wonderful to visit Agemaspark recently and I would like to thank my host Paul Stockhill, MD of Agemaspark for giving me the opportunity to do so.

“Agemaspark is a small, family-owned company specialising in precision engineering and 3D metal printing. The company invests time in apprentices and works closely with Doncaster UTC, the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre and both Sheffield Universities, amongst others. It is great to see a company taking such pride in seeing the development of its workforce from apprentice to experienced employee, which is lovely to see. Another example of the engineering heritage and expertise that Doncaster and the wider South Yorkshire area is renowned for.”
