What future for manufacturing in the Midlands? Members meeting and AGM

Discussion with the MTC's Dr Clive Hickman


This years' Members meeting & AGM will be held virtually using Microsoft Teams.

Our keynote speaker is the Chief Executive of the Manufacturing Technology Centre, Dr Clive Hickman.

Clive has been appointed to head a new body aimed at leading the resurgence of manufacturing industry in the Midlands. The Midlands’ Manufacturing Resilience Commission, to be known as M2R, will review the Midlands’ manufacturing landscape post-Covid, contribute to the creation of a wider Midlands’ manufacturing strategy and develop recommendations to help build the region’s manufacturing resilience and its subsequent economic impact.

Contributions are being invited from senior representatives from industry, academia and government.

Clive has said:

“Through the recent crisis we have seen the manufacturing sector respond to the needs of the hour, including through vital initiatives such as the Ventilator Challenge and the production of much needed PPE. We are proud of what we achieved, but we believe there are lessons to be learned, not least in terms of how we, here in the Midlands, can work together to maximise our impact, and develop a strategy that will put our region on the map, not only nationally but also internationally."

"In these challenging times, we must build on our strengths; our skills, our heritage and our willingness to respond and adapt to new challenges. I look forward to leading this process and delivering a commission that will make a real difference to our region."

Dr Clive Hickman has been Chief Executive of the Manufacturing Technology Centre for 10 years. Previously he had more than 35 years experience in the automotive industry culminating in the position of head of engineering for Tata Motors in India. He also established the Tata Motors European Technical Centre Plc in the UK.

He began his career as a senior engineer with the Rover Group before becoming Engineering and Group Operations Director at MIRA. He subsequently joined Ricardo Plc where he held a seat on the board and was Managing Director of Ricardo UK Ltd.

Born in Coseley, in the West Midlands, he is a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering and a Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.
