House of Lords Acknowledges Value of High-Technology Trail-Blazers

International manufacturing software specialist Applied Computing & Engineering Ltd (AC&E Ltd) has been warmly received at a Daresbury Science and Innovation Campus event hosted in the House of Lords by Lord Wade of Chorlton and leading members of the Science and Technology Select Committee of the House of Lords.

AC&E Ltd, the design, simulation and robot manufacturing software specialist that helps clients reduce time-to-market and dramatically improve product quality and performance, was praised at the Westminster reception for companies in the science and innovation community. The delegation was arranged by the Science and Technology Facilities Council, the Research Council which initiated the national science and innovation campus at Daresbury where AC&E Ltd has its HQ.

Proud of its prestigious client list which includes Boeing, Nissan, ABB, DaimlerChrysler and Lockheed Martin, AC&E Ltd heard Lord Wade refer to the Prime Minister David Cameron’s recent announcement of enterprise zone status for Daresbury, stating the Government would further support the growth of high-tech organisations such as AC&E Ltd.

In his speech, Lord Wade said it was companies like AC&E Ltd that were playing a key role in the resurgence of the UK knowledge economy. Director of AC&E Ltd, Yash Khandhia, said: “This was an excellent opportunity for Applied Computing and Engineering to showcase its innovation and to explore collaborative partnerships with major players in science and technology commercialisation. We are grateful to Lord Wade, the Science and Technology Facilities Council and to Daresbury Science and Innovation Campus for this powerful opportunity.”

Professor Colin Whitehouse, Deputy Chief Executive of the Science and Technology Facilities Council and Board Member of Daresbury Science and Innovation Campus was also delighted with the success of the event and the very high level of key UK policy- and decision-makers who attended, adding: "The event really served to highlight the very rapid science and innovation progress which continues to be made at Daresbury and the UK-leading company growth rates and sustainability that the Campus is now generating."

Representatives of AC&E Ltd met with MPs, high-tech SMEs, blue chip organisations and delegates from the wider science and innovation support community.

AC&E Ltd provides a complete range of simulation services that includes world leading design and manufacturing simulation software, training and support, consultancy and computing optimisation, along with robot programming in areas such as non-destructive inspection and testing of manufacturing components.
