MTA AGM and New President Election

MTA AGM and New President Election

Added to MTDCNC by MTDCNC on 13 December 2016
The MTA held its Annual General Meeting in London on Tuesday 6th December 2016 at One Whitehall Place, Westminster.
The meeting, which was proceeded by an MTA Members’ Forum, saw over 50 members come together to discuss the MTA’s future with potential new events and the Association’s response to Brexit at the forefront of the debate.
The AGM saw the MTA Presidency pass from Guy Mollart to Geoffrey Bryant, Managing Director of Citizen Machinery UK.
Mr Bryant said: “It is an honour to become President of the MTA for a 2 year term. I have worked in our industry for over 40 years and have been involved in MTA activities for 20 years. My previous role on the Exhibition Committee has brought me into regular contact with many MTA members. For those that don’t know me ‘my door is always open’ and I welcome contact on any subject. I thank the Association for the vote of confidence in me, I will do my utmost to justify it. Finally, I thank Guy Mollart, outgoing President, for his contribution to the MTA in the last 2 years.
MTA CEO James Selka said “It is fantastic to welcome Geoff as the President of the MTA Board. Guy Mollart has been a great advocate for the MTA over the course of his two years at the helm and I would like to extend my sincere thanks for all the help and support he has given. We look forward to drawing upon Geoff’s wealth of experience to help guide the Association over the next two years. We are very lucky to have such dedicated members on our board who go out of their way to promote the amazing work undertaken in the UK’s advanced manufacturing technologies sectors.”
About the MTA
The MTA exists to promote the interests, and be the voice, of the manufacturing technologies sector in the UK.


The Manufacturing Technologies Association is the UK’s trade association for companies in the manufacturing technology sector.  MTA members design, manufacture and supply the advanced machinery, equipment and intellectual property that enable the creation of the products we rely on from day to day and that drive our economy.


Key aspects of manufacturing technology include; machine tools, cutting tools, metrology (measuring) equipment, additive manufacturing (3D printing), surface finishing, robotics and computer aided design and manufacturing products (CAD/CAM), as well as the technology which is enabling the digitisation of manufacturing – the fourth industrial revolution. These combine to make up complete systems - increasingly automated and adaptive - that manufacturers deploy, making the sector fundamental to the prosperity, health and defence of the nation.

The MTA delivers: marketing support and networking opportunities; specific and relevant economic and technical information; representation to Government and other stakeholders; help for exporters; and support for learning and development within member companies and beyond.
The MTA owns and runs MACH, the UK’s premier event to showcase manufacturing technologies. The biennial exhibition, held at the NEC, attracts over 25,000 visitors, over 600 exhibitors and the last edition, MACH 2016, saw over £150,000,000 of business attributed to it.
Established in 1919 the MTA has been at the core of the UK’s engineering based manufacturing economy for almost a century.
