UK - At the AGM last month, members of the Manufacturing Technologies Association inaugurated their new President Marcus Burton.

Members at the Annual General Meeting of the Manufacturing Technologies Association(MTA) in December 2018 saw the inauguration of their new president, Marcus Burton, and had a meeting in Parliament with Business Minister Richard Harrington MP and his Shadow Chi Onwurah MP.

Burton, who is a director at Yamazaki Mazak and recently served on the Made Smarter Review, brings a wealth of experience in the manufacturing technologies sector. He will serve a two-year term as MTA president and thanked outgoing President Geoff Bryant. Burton also said he was looking forward to use his presidency to make a difference to the industry in which he has enjoyed a rewarding career. “Issues such as Brexit and Industrial Digitalisation will have a major effect on our industry and I want to make sure that our voice is heard,” Burton added.

After the AGM, leading academics in their fields, Professor Sam Turner, CTO of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, talked about the Made Smarter programme, which aims to turn the North West of England on to industrial digitalisation. Then Professor Anand Menon, director of the centre for the UK in a Changing Europe at Kings College London, shared his thoughts on the latest developments in Brexit.
