Thursday night (6 February) saw the Manufacturing Technologies Association’s (MTA) Annual Dinner take place. Over 400 guests got together to discuss the future and celebrate success.

MTA President and Director of Yamazaki Mazak, Marcus Burton MBE, used his keynote speech to address some of the hot topics affecting the UK manufacturing sector: Brexit and future trade, climate change, how MTA members are ‘champions of productivity’ and of course Mach 2020.

On productivity he said “MTA members have the equipment, ideas and expertise for our manufacturers to transform their productivity. In fact, our MTA members are the ‘Champions of Productivity’. As such we have a huge opportunity, and responsibility, to improve the economic well-being of the whole country.”

He continued by highlighting that Mach 2020 is just around the corner, saying “Mach is the only place in the UK to see such technology on display and under power — but it is more than that — it is the spotlight for our creativity. It’s just ten weeks away now, and I, for one, can’t wait to see what the ‘Champions of Productivity’ have to offer the 25,000 plus visitors we expect to come from far and wide.”
