Last Friday saw the second annual Metal Bashers Ball dinner dance, hosted jointly by the MMMA and the ISME at the Copthorne hotel, which saw over 160 guests from over 25 member companies join together and celebrate contributions to UK Manufacturing.
To ensure this event was a success takes a lot of careful organisation to ensure everything from the venue, food, drinks etc are all up to scratch. Many thanks to those involved in the organisation, Adrian Haller Chairman of the MMMA & Bill Neal also of the MMMA, and Bill Pinfold, Adrian Nicklin and Josie Stevenson of ISME. We are sure everyone who attended will agree it was great evening and a good chance to catch up with colleagues and peers, new and old alike.
A very Special thank you to our sponsors this year Schuler Presses, the MTA, eleven10creative and Close Bros Asset Finance, who’s much valued contribution to this years event helped it to be such a big success. As those of you who attended will know, this years special guest was Carl Chinn MBE, a local historian who gave us all a great insight into local gangsters, the real Peaky Blinders. Many thanks to Carl for taking time to join us on the night. And lastly but by no means least, a big thank you to everyone who attended the Metal Bashers Ball and here’s looking forward to the next event!
As always, these events are not only a members-only affair, they are open to non-members as well and indeed not only from metal forming industries, but to the wider manufacturing fraternity as well. If you would like to join us next year, or to find out more about the MMMA and ISME organisations, we’d love to hear from you.
Together, we should all celebrate what we in the UK are good at!
