Bristol, England, 22 January 2016 – MP for Kingswood, Chris Skidmore will formally open HiETA’s new advanced Technology Centre on Friday, 5 February 2016.
HiETA has experienced rapid growth since its formation in 2012 and has expanded from a hot-desk at Bristol and Bath Science Park, to a 24-strong company.
The Technology Centre has been built within BBSP’s grow-on centre and will create up to six new jobs at the site. It is the next phase in HiETA’s development and demonstrates a commitment to the potential that Additive Manufacturing (AM) offers for manufacturers.
The official launch will feature three experts in the development of AM in the UK including:
- Mike Adams, HiETA CEO, will open proceedings
- Robin Wilson, Lead Technologist, High Value Manufacturing, Innovate UK will highlight the importance of manufacturing in the UK
- Neil Mantle, Chairman of the Steering Group for UK National Strategy for Additive Manufacturing/3D Printing, will outline the adoption of Additive Manufacturing in the engineering sector
After the official opening by Mr Skidmore attendees will be invited to tour the new facility.
The new centre will enable customers and partners to track progress from the initial concept through to design, analysis, manufacture, post processing, quality assurance and component testing – all in one place.
Mike Adams, CEO of HiETA, said, “We are very proud of the progress that HiETA has made over the last four years. Additive Manufacturing offers a real alternative to traditional manufacturing and is often the only way that some projects can be delivered. We have already seen some fascinating solutions come to life in our Technology Centre and are fully expecting more of the same in the years to come”.
