Our new Additive Manufacturing Design and Development Engineer, Ben, joined us at the start of June from a mixed background in industrial and commercial design innovation. Ben started as a Product Designer working in the medical device sector and quickly became involved in other business operations so decided to enrol on a part time MBA to understand where design and business overlapped. Alongside the typical MBA strategic management, risk management and corporate finance modules, Ben specialised in open innovation with a focus on micro-firms.
Wanting to concentrate once more on the design element of his career, Ben left his previous job to focus on product design and engineering through freelance and sub-contract work. As well as this new venture he also had a secondary aim of starting a company that would bring additive manufacturing to consumers. Meeting Addition founder Tom Fripp whilst collaborating on a COVID-19 project, Ben quickly understood Addition’s potential and the direction that they wanted to take the company and took the decision to join the company in early June.
“I think the way in which Addition have addressed ways to liberate any potential for additive manufacturing in businesses is extremely exciting. Breaking down the technology into basic, clear terms means Addition helps customers to understand how the right applications of the technology stack up for them. The AM audits are a fantastic way of proving it too and the potential for some of the planned new services is incredible.”
Ben believes that, with his understanding around strategy and business operations and his experience in design, not forgetting his own love of additive manufacturing, he can really get stuck in help Addition grow and expand as a business.
