Machine perfection wins manufacturing-experts national award

Advanced manufacturing experts Metrology Software Products save aerospace companies like BAE Systems, Magellan and the Triumph Group millions of pounds with their revolutionary techniques for complex part production. Their NC-PerfectPart system is an essential component of BAE Systems F35 Lightning II assembly manufacture around the globe.

MSP’s success was recognised with another prestigious award recently. Regarded throughout UK manufacturing as the top industry awards of the year, the MWP awards were held in Birmingham at a gala evening hosted by comic Marcus Brigstock.

A judging panel of industry experts recognised MSP’s achievement by presenting the 2014 Best Production Management System to MSP Managing Director Peter Hammond who said afterwards “I am so proud of our team who deserve all of the recognition for this award, especially since we were up against the major players in our industry”

This is the second major award in a few months for the UK based company. An MSP team working with BAE Systems Engineers were recently awarded the 2013 Chairman’s Gold award for improving the process for the manufacture of F35’s Nozzle Bay Door leading to savings of £21m.

MSP were joined at the awards dinner by customers CTAL (Rolls Royce/GKN Aerospace joint venture), Cobham Antenna Systems, and T&R Composites. They were delighted their investment in NC- PerfectPart was now an award winning decision.

“We have worked closely with our major blue chip customers for nearly a decade and now we are starting to see greater recognition for our expertise. MSP really have achieved excellence through experience.”
