Posted on 4 Oct 2022 by The Manufacturer

The Digital Manufacturing Centre (DMC) has taken home gold in the Innovative Business category at this year’s Buckinghamshire Business Awards.

The prestigious event, which took place at the Aylesbury Waterside Theatre (28 September), aimed to shine a spotlight on the region’s most inspiring companies.

Founded, built and opened during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, the DMC has quickly established itself as a world-leading, multi-technology additive manufacturing facility. These efforts were recognised by the judges, who praised the team’s ambition and early success.

In a little over a year, the DMC has brought the future of connected digital manufacturing to the UK supply chain. It offers expertly engineered solutions and part production to advanced industries from aerospace, space, and defence, through to automotive, motorsport, medtech and energy.
