Last week, specifically 15 April, holds a special place in the history of the Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA), as it was on that date in 1919 that the association was founded and the first meeting of its members held.
To mark the centenary, members past and present have been contributing to a book ‘At the Heart of Manufacturing’, which charts the history of the association from inception to the present day.
The book is also a record of how much technology has changed over the past 100 years; some of the manufacturing techniques of then would be unrecognisable today. The book was carefully put together by looking through historical records and recounting recent years. Every member of the MTA has received a copy of the publication, which was launched at the MTA’s centenary dinner in February.
