Canada Makes is leading a trade mission to the UK this coming June 6th. The delegation will visit institutions using metal additive manufacturing with a particular emphasis on aerospace.
Following Canada Makes’ successful trade mission to Germany this past January, it was decided more international trade missions for Canada’s additive manufacturing sector would be good business.
“The Canada Makes Trade Mission to Germany was a great way for our company to connect with international additive manufacturing leaders,” said Martin Petrak, the President and CEO of Precision ADM. “We also took the opportunity to meet with other Canadian companies interested in collaborating on national and international business opportunities.”
This mission includes a full four-day agenda, including visits to Renishaw, GKN Aerospace, the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC), The Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre and Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre AMRC both at the University of Sheffield and likely Jaguar.
In addition to your own travel and accommodation costs, Canada Makes/CME will charge an administration fee of $500.
A limited number of spaces are available on a first-come-first serve basis.

During the trade mission to Germany, Canada Makes visited the Ludwig Bölkow Campus (LBC), a research and technology hub for innovation in aerospace and security manufacturing, and APWorks, an additive manufacturing SME focused in the aerospace industry.
The LBC is a consortium including Siemens, Airbus Group, Technische Universität München, and more. By innovating green technologies, public security, autonomous systems, and more, the site is standing firmly before its reputation as an accomplished group.
The Canadian group toured the campus’ facilities and technologies, noteworthy for both pragmatism and capability.
“That the facilities are impressive is nothing short of accurate,” said Frank DeFalco, the Manager of Canada Makes who is leading the tour. “We are fortunate to have such great hosts to show us this truly innovative space.”
Canada Makes’ mission is focused on visiting manufacturers and innovators on behalf of their Canadian counterparts to build relationships that keep the Canadian economy competitive and vibrant.
Canada Makes is proud to have been kindly hosted by Alexander Mager of Airbus Group Innovations during the Canadian trade mission to Germany.
