LPW Technology has been included in The Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100 for the second year running. The league table ranks Britain’s private technology, media and telecoms (TMT) companies with the fastest-growing sales.
As the global AM sector matures, LPW has consistently striven to anticipate the needs of the developing market. Its focus on customer service and metal powders optimised for individual applications has fuelled its strong growth.
“To support our customers, we’re building a new, £20 million state-of-the-art facility in the UK to produce the next generation of premium, AM-specific metal alloys that the safety-critical sectors demand,” comments Dr Phil Carroll, Founder and CEO of LPW. “Our ‘factory of the future’ will open in February 2018, enabling us to manufacture metal powders on-site in Liverpool, and in October this year our US operation will be moving to larger premises. These two new sites will allow us to process more materials and dispatch powders within 24 hours of receipt of order.
“Complementing our comprehensive range of materials, we’ve developed a suite of software and hardware technology solutions that integrate material control and traceability into additive manufacturing environments.
“Achieving a placement in this prestigious league table for the second year in a row acknowledges the work we’ve undertaken to design end-to-end metal powder AM solutions that will ultimately facilitate AM uptake in the production environment,” adds Phil.
LPW ranks at 70, one of only eight organisations headquartered in the North West of England to make the league. Its powerful PowderSolve software system has recently been implemented by one of the leading US medical implant manufacturers, demonstrating its compatibility with safety-critical applications.
