Sheffield manufacturer represents city at launch of Digital Manufacturing week

SevenHills Fabrication represented Sheffield and joined other leading UK manufacturers to celebrate the launch of Digital Manufacturing Week 2019 in London.

James Harding-Terry, MD of the city-based laser cutting and fabrication company, joined 200 manufacturers, engineers, industry supporters and politicians at a special reception hosted by Lord Karan Bilimoria at The House of Lords this week.

The event marked the launch of the biggest digital manufacturing show in the European manufacturing calendar, this year to be hosted over four days in Liverpool in November.

The annual celebration of UK manufacturing brings together technology, finance and advanced manufacturing with the focus this year on building bridges to international markets.

Mr Harding-Terry said: “This was a fantastic chance to talk to some of the UK’s leading manufacturers to learn why Digital Manufacturing Week is the biggest event in the industrial calendar and find out more about the plans for November 2019.

“The UK has never had more to gain from a manufacturing renaissance than now and with the exceptional skills that the country possesses, it is vital that the next level of technological and digital advances are adopted and pioneered across our industry.

“Businesses that will not only survive the turbulent economic and political changes that we are witnessing on a national and global level, but that will thrive in the coming years, are those that push the boundaries of digital integration, lean processes and process control, and work to become early adopters of the Internet of Things.

“Manufacturing is approaching the fourth industrial revolution and technology combined with skill and adaptability are the forces that will shape future industries, it is important that the UK maintains a lead.”

Last year 4,279 expo visitors, 887 conference delegates and 153 exhibitors attended Digital Manufacturing Week and this year’s event in Liverpool aims to be the biggest yet.

MR Harding-Terry was representing Sheffield at the House of Lords event after being awarded a place in The Manufacturer Top 100 2018. The award publicly recognises the most dynamic leaders and innovators in manufacturing.

SevenHills Fabrication is an established sub-contract laser cutting and steel fabrication business based at Holbrook Industrial Estate in Sheffield. The company supplies businesses across the UK and has invested in new equipment and employees to expand its production capabilities.

Help us maintain our standards of journalism

Readers enjoy our news site but keeping our news up to date and authoritative, without charging readers to view the site is a challenge. Especially now with the Corona Virus measures affecting us all, as many clients have been severely affected and are naturally reducing their spend on advertisements. Given this lack of revenue stream we are calling on the generosity of our readers to help us fill that void and enable our journalists to continue delivering the news that you enjoy.

Unlike many other news sites, we don't have annoying pop ups or charge scandalous prices for events. We also produce printed magazines for each title and we make these freely available to read on line too, for your enjoyment. Often, people have asked why we don't make a charge for viewers to read these magazines and news stories but we feel that would adversely affect our readership/advertisers response rate. But with advertising revenues now severely affected we need your help. So, if you can support our news sites/magazines with either a small donation of even £1, or a subscription to our magazine, which costs from just £31.50 per year, (inc p&P and mailed direct to your door) your generosity will help us weather the current storm and continue in our quest to deliver quality journalism.

We value your readership and your support, as this enables us to continue to provide our regular daily news updates. We've been established over 30 years, during which we've lost count of the numerous recessions and financial meltdowns, and we intend to weather the storms caused by Covid-19. So, every reader contribution, however big or small, is invaluable in helping us to get through this. Please click here to help support your favourite news site/magazine.
