Added 06/11/2018

Tim Tatton, General Manager of Amphenol Invotec, one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of advanced PCBs, made a presentation at Westminster on 5th November in support of Sharing in Growth.

Other speakers included the Rt Hon Greg Clark MP, Secretary of State at the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, Warren East, chief executive of Rolls-Royce and Colin Smith, chairman of the Aerospace Growth Partnership. Members of Parliament and key aerospace industry decision-makers were among the 150 people present at the event.

Supported by the Regional Growth Fund, Sharing in Growth is an ambitious transformation programme, set up in 2013, designed to raise the capability of UK aerospace suppliers to share in the growth of aerospace and other global markets. The scheme provides concentrated training and development tailored to the assessed needs of each supplier and targeted at world class standards of performance. The training covers all relevant disciplines, including lean operations, manufacturing processes, procurement, cost modelling and leadership.

Amphenol Invotec joined the programme in 2014 and, with its support, has aligned its organisation and culture to meet increased turnover and export targets. Earlier this year, the company won the Sharing in Growth Integrity Trophy for the initiatives it has taken to establish and advance a process of continuous improvement.

Commenting on the event, Tim Tatton said:

This was an excellent opportunity to explain how Sharing in Growth has made such a significant impact on Amphenol Invotec. The programme has given us a real insight into how to actually structure and execute an entire business transformation programme, how to identify those areas where we could achieve real improvement, and how to cascade leadership skills across the organisation.”
