The Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA) has announced that Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking will be the headline sponsor of MACH 2018
, an event designed to bring together all the best innovation and technology for
a wide range of manufacturing sectors under one roof.
James Selka, CEO at the MTA, said: “MACH 2018
will be the largest showcase of advanced engineering in the country and a fantastic opportunity to experience the technology that is fuelling an industrial renaissance in the UK.
“This is the fourth time Lloyds Bank has sponsored MACH
, which takes place every two years and attracted over 25,000 visitors in 2016.”
David Atkinson (pictured), UK Head of Manufacturing at Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking, said: “Manufacturing plays a vital role in the UK economy and is integral to the country’s growth ambitions, both at home and abroad.
“We’re thrilled to support MACH again in 2018, as it provides a fantastic platform for manufacturers to showcase the latest industry developments and technology, including automation, digitalisation and connected manufacturing.
“We understand that manufacturers have unique banking needs. Whether it’s investing in new plant and machinery to automate processes or integrating robotics on the factory floor, our manufacturing-accredited managers can offer a range of support to help businesses find the most appropriate plan.
“This is part of our Helping Britain Prosper
plan to support British manufacturing with an additional £1 billion of new lending this year.”
The MACH 2018
exhibition will be held 9-13 April 2018 at the NEC near Birmingham.
