The Manufacturing Technologies Association has named Siemens employee Andrew Hodgson as Vice President.
He has been a member of the MTA Board for a number of years and also chairs the Association’s Technical Committee, which looks at activities in advanced manufacturing technologies, such as additive manufacturing, automation and industry Standards.
Andrew is the Strategic Lead for Digitalisation which incorporates Siemens’ activities in advanced manufacturing technologies, such as additive manufacturing and robotics. Andrew also champions ‘intra-company business’ enabling other Siemens divisions to maximise the opportunities presented in their digital journey.
James Selka, MTA CEO, said “Andrew has been a dedicated member of our Board and his level of expertise has been of great benefit to our Technical Committee. We look forward to working even more closely together in his new position as Vice President, especially in relation to the enormous opportunities for increased productivity in UK manufacturing that accelerating digitalisation brings.”
Andrew said: “It is a great honour to be appointed as Vice President of the MTA. Our association works hard to both represent and inform our members in a fast-changing manufacturing environment. I look forward to working even closer with James Selka and his team, ensuring we continue to progress as an Association and accurately reflect the diverse range of technologies we champion.”
