The Company of Cutlers in Hallamshire

The Master Cutler of Hallamshire and the Regional Mayor of South Yorkshire (SY) invited Livery Masters to a lunchtime event, where the region outlined investment opportunities and success stories in South Yorkshire.  We received presentations from the Regional Mayor and others representing the South Yorkshire Growth Team, Sheffield Chamber, Sheffield Property Association, Yorkshire AI Labs, research institutions and several regional manufacturers.  It was fascinating to hear how the city and region has evolved from the traditional industries of the region to cutting edge technologies and innovations, ln many cases building on the skills developed from past enterprises.

After the Yorkshire representatives had spoken, the Lord Mayor of London, Alderman Professor Michael Mainelli, responded, drawing on the “Connect to Prosper” theme of his Mayoralty.  He stressed the value of working together – universities, local authorities, investors and business.  He welcomed the delegation to the World’s Coffee House.

Sheffield and South Yorkshire (SY) is home to the first Innovation Zone announced in UK; its manufacturers are an important part of the global supply chain and it is a recognised innovation hot spot.

The Region is famed for its manufacturing prowess and is home to an Innovation Zone based around the Advanced Machining Research Centre (AMRC) and the Nuclear AMRC.  It is home to companies integral to the supply chain, such as Swann Morton, Sheffield Forgemasters, Forged Solutions, Magtec, ITM Power and TWINKL.  The applied research from the research facilities flows into both spin outs and well-known names in the Region, such as Boeing, McClaren, Rolls-Royce and UKAEA.  It has a well-trained population with two world class universities, excellent vocational colleges and a depth of manufacturing, creative, digital and IT skills. 

Congratulations to the Master and Company of Cutlers in Hallamshire for a very successful and inspiring event.
