Kenneth Cooke visits PES Performance Ltd
Innovative companies in the Sheffield City Region and collaboration between them were amongst the subjects discussed during the Master Cutler's recent visit to PES Performance Ltd.
Master Cutler Ken Cooke was at the Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP) to learn more about the engineering design expertise of the PES Performance team, and the capabilities of the other PES companies in the fields of 3D scanning and data capture, and business profit improvement.
He was shown projects from clients ranging from aerospace, Motorsport, medical technologies and automotive sectors.
Commenting on his visit, the Master Cutler said: "It was very interesting to meet the PES team and to see the world-class work that they undertake with clients, regionally, nationally and internationally.
“The advanced engineering capabilities of our regional SMEs continues to amaze me. Businesses, like PES Performance, will future-proof our region and are the life blood of the economy. This gives me additional confidence in promoting our region for inward investment.
"PES are a great example of the innovative SMEs we have in the City Region, and it is encouraging to hear how they are collaborating with other local businesses, attracting companies to the region for R&D and also working with the UTC and University to promote engineering as a future career."
Mike Maddock, managing director of PES Performance added; "We were honoured to have the Master Cutler visit. Ken really understands the value of SME’s in the region and asked many questions about research and development, digital engineering and advanced manufacturing.
“He is keen to understand the capabilities of the businesses that underpin the supply chain, and the team really enjoyed meeting Ken. We appreciate his taking time out of his busy schedule to visit us.”
