Engineering institution hand out accolade.

A HI-TECH business based in Denbighshire has received an accolade from one of the UK's leading engineering institutions.

Laser Micromachining Limited (LML), based at Technium OpTIC, St Asaph Business Park, has been awarded the MNT (micro and nano-technology) Quality Mark by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers as part of the organisation's internationally recognised manufacturing excellence awards programme.

The award was presented to the company by former director of the UK MNT Network Professor Hugh Clare during a Welsh Assembly Government-hosted reception at OpTIC.

It recognises the excellence of LML's laser micro-machining capabilities bench-marked in a wide range of categories against best practice in both the UK and Europe.

Nadeem Rizvi, LML general manager, said: "The award will provide our industrial customers with further confidence of the competence, capability and quality of service offered by LML."

LML provides laser-controlled manufacturing services to a wide variety of precision and high technology industries and also operates the UK laser micro-machining centre - the national centre of excellence for laser micromachining within the UK's MNT manufacturing initiative, which is part-supported by the UK Technology Strategy Board and the Welsh Assembly Government.

Professor Clare said: "These awards are given to companies who have demonstrated excellence in manufacturing.

"UK-LMC was subject to independent scrutiny, and in gaining the MNT Quality Mark has demonstrated manufacturing excellence in the global supply chain."
