This week, we were lucky enough to be asked along to the coveted Birmingham Made Me Awards !
Those of you that follow our Blog, will know that recently we gained an opportunity to sponsor and work with Birmingham City’s University Racing Team. The partnership gave us the opportunity to manufacture various car parts for the student team, to be put to use in the annual Formula Student Competition. This week the BCU Racing Team invited us to the Birmingham Made Me Awards for an evening of entertainment and to see the progress of the car.
Birmingham Made Me honors Birmingham’s finest design and engineering companies. The event took place at the Millennium Point in Birmingham on the 17th June. Our representatives were treated to champagne on arrival, canapes and a variety of Indian meals. Entertainment included; a fashion show, Indian dancing and a variety of singing acts. The opportunity to take part in the luxury raffle was too good to pass up, unfortunately for both members of our team, neither of them turned out to be very lucky.
We have used our CNC Machining services and our Engineering & Design experience to assist the BCU Racing Team with the manufacture of key components for the project. We are extremely happy to see the cars progress and our components on there. These include Front and Rear Uprights, a Mono Shock Rocker, Rear Hub Flange and a Mono Shock Rocker Clamp.
Both our members of staff had a fantastic night at the Birmingham Made Me awards, seeing what Birmingham has to offer the Design & Engineering Industry. We would like wish the BCU Student Racing Team all the best when they compete against teams from around the world in the annual ImechE’s Formula Competition.
