More than 40 attendees from the RePLY networking group enjoyed a talk and a tour at Renishaw’s assembly facility in Woodchester, Stroud.
The RePLY events are jointly hosted by BPE Solicitors and Randall & Payne Chartered Accountants, and include a speaker, networking opportunities and a tour or demonstration, depending on the venue. This event included a tour of Renishaw’s award winning assembly facility, giving attendees the chance to see the production line for a wide range of Renishaw’s precision measurement systems. These precision tools are used by companies globally to measure the physical dimensions of manufactured components and assemblies, often down to just a few thousandths of a millimetre.
“The Stroud and Five Valleys area really is an amazing place for innovative companies. The number of cutting-edge facilities such as Renishaw’s really is impressive”, commented Cheryl Leigh, Partner at BPE Solicitors. "BPE have long been supporters of innovative businesses and as an entrepreneurial business ourselves, we enjoy hearing from, and working with, like-minded businesses.”
Chris Pockett, head of communications at Renishaw said: “Our award winning assembly facility is something we’re incredibly proud of. Being able to take RePLY delegates around and show them how it all works was a real pleasure. It is always great to share conversations and experiences with business people who represent such a diverse range of skills and sectors.”
The RePLY networking events take place quarterly at different venues across Stroud and The Five Valleys. They offer attendees the chance to find out more about local businesses, as well as network with like-minded professionals. The next event will be taking place in spring, 2016, with details to be announced shortly.
