IIDEA Global Manufacturing Festival Sheffield June 2014

IIDEA Limited exhibit at the Global Manufacturing Festival (GMF) Sheffield June 2014 a fantastic event for technology companies in the region to showcase their skills, products and services

IIDEA Limited is one of the pioneer businesses located at the Advanced Manufacturing Park. Its operations have expanded from an 800sqft unit in the Technology Centre, to now include a 4000sqft freehold manufacturing facility equipped with some impressive people, and machine and technical capabilities. The business is “expertise led” counting no fewer that seven degree level staff members in a work force of ten, as well as highly experienced machine technicians.

Our design capabilities are based around the latest 3D CAD/CAM systems by Solidworks, and we specialise in taking difficult to do one-off projects and turning them into finished product. We place a high premium on the contributions of our people above everything, and we aim to differentiate our business through the quality of our people. We match our people with equally high quality machining capabilities, including Doosan and Haas machining centres, alongside modern lathes. We have also invested in sawing capacity, small-scale heat treatment, materials analysis, and other facilities.

In the longer term, we aim to have established a company with a reputation for technical expertise allied to a great customer experience with high levels of satisfaction. We are serving customers in aerospace, medical, and oil and gas markets, and have a number of very strong customer collaborations with co-located businesses on the AMP that underpin our core business. We are ISO9001 approved and work with many blue chip customers to exacting standards.

Our belief is that customers will benefit from working in collaborative partnership with IIDEA. We place strong emphasis on customer service and keeping a “can do” approach at the centre of our business philosophy. We anticipate further growth in 2014/15 as our recent capital expenditure programme translates into increased capability to serve our customers. The business has been supported through the RGF programme, and enjoys the commitment and long term support of the business founders – Martin Burnham, of Independent Forgings & Alloys, and David Campbell, formerly a senior partner with top five accounting firm Grant Thornton. We look forward to sharing more of our story with you at the Global Manufacturing event.
