The team at AML is full of pride for winning The King’s Awards 2024 for Enterprise Innovation.

We are currently celebrating, after the announcement that our 100-strong team has been awarded the much-coveted King’s Award for Enterprise Innovation, which celebrates “leaders in their field who adopt exemplary working practices and inspire other businesses”.

Our Managing Director, Dr Gareth Morgan says: “This is an incredible achievement for the whole AML team and a recognition of our expertise and commitment to excellence. Innovation was hard wired into our DNA from the very beginning which is why the most demanding customers on the planet, from aerospace and defence to land based gas turbines that complement the green energy/renewable sector, trust us with the manufacture of strategically critical components.”

Originally a spin-out from the award-winning Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre – itself the recipient of the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education in 2007 – AML received a £1.98m Renewal Action Plan grant from the South Yorkshire Mayoral Authority in 2022 to accelerate the creation of 32 new high value added jobs. The King’s Award for Enterprise Innovation was driven by funding from the Aerospace Technology Institute and has resulted in eight new roles to support the new production cell built to manufacture these components, consisting of six machine operators and two manufacturing engineers.
