CMA Moldform Ltd received an award for Innovation as Midlands manufacturing was celebrated last week at the annual ‘Made in the Midlands’ awards. The awards recognise high growth and innovation amongst manufacturing firms in the region.
This year’s event was held on the 19th October at Millennium Point in Birmingham and Lord Digby Jones received a standing ovation for his lively speech, which praised the nation’s wealth creators in the private sector.
Addressing members of Made in the Midlands, Lord Digby Jones said, "You are the most important people in Britain, you are part of the wealth creation ……we live in a globalised economy and we need to make the most of it and sell 'Brand Britain' which is referred all over the world." Proving that industry is still investing and showing confidence, hundreds of manufacturing companies came to celebrate the best of Midlands manufacturing.
CMA Moldform received their award for their extensive research and development which enabled them to produce the clear, bubble-like helmets used in the filming of Ridley Scott’s 2012 blockbuster, ‘Prometheus.’
Family-run CMA Moldform, a well established moulding and casting business based in Birmingham, has a wide range of clients across many industries, including automotive, marine, medical, electronic, art and engineering sectors and is a tier-one rapid prototype supplier to success story Jaguar Land Rover.
The company has doubled its workforce in the past two years and it has also expanded from its 7,000 sq ft premises to 39,000 sq ft in the past five years, resulting in higher production levels and a large increase in turnover.
Peter Turnock, Managing Director of CMA Moldform said: "Even in these tough economic times, CMA is proving that it is possible to expand successfully their manufacturing capacity with high quality products and reliable service."
