We reveal the winner of this year’s Technology Innovation Award, sponsored by Kava Communications

Last night, on November 2, we celebrated the region’s best innovative engineering and manufacturing companies at the third annual Cotswold Life Engineering Manufacturing Innovation Awards.

The glittering ceremony held at Cheltenham Racecourse celebrated the incredible achievements made by companies who really do put the Cotswolds on the map, drive the region’s economy and keep the area at the top of the tree when it comes to entrepreneurship and business success.

Thanks to both the nominations of the public and our well-respected judges, we have picked a winner worthy of the Technology Innovation Award, sponsored by Kava Communications.

This year’s finalists are:

Corin Group, Cirencester: Optimised Positioning System (OPS)

Over the past few years, Corin has made significant changes to its strategy to make the most of business opportunities.

It has acquired two companies and in order to grow market share - turnover has doubled from £50m to £100m in the past three years - it is now on a journey to make surgery more efficient with big data and deep data analytics bringing medical devices and data-driven technology together to deliver greater value and efficiency. It has invested £4m in its state-of-the-art factory over the past few years and now employs more than 500 people globally, 400 in the UK.

In direct contrast to the ‘one size fits all’ historical hip replacements, its Optimised Positioning System recognises that everyone’s pelvis moves differently. It takes a series of CT scans which are then fed into a computer system to allow laser-guided surgery in the operating theatre, helping the surgeon optimise the cup position in the patient. This improves patient outcomes and reduces hospital readmissions. To date more than 5,000 hip replacement procedures have been performed worldwide using this ‘unique hip’ technology.

Glosfume Ltd, Cheltenham: Self-cleaning ceramic filtration system

Multi award-winning Glosfume has developed a self-cleaning ceramic filtration system capable of operating at up to 700C. Backed by 25 years of continuous R&D, this removes sub-micron particles and acid gas from industrial processes. Its systems are now used by a wide range of corporations including Balfour Beatty, British American Tobacco and French Nuclear Fuels.

Applications include bespoke filtration plants to control emissions from burning chicken litter at two large chicken producers - the result being both farms can now burn litter on site, use the hot water to heat the hen houses and attract subsidies from the Renewable Heat Incentive. Filters have also been supplied to Heathrow and Gatwick airports to allow the airlines to burn food waste and raise hot water for heating.

And the winner is...

Lentus Composites, Eynsham: Cervelo competition frame bikes

Lentus was given a challenge by Cervelo - makers of the world’s fastest bikes - to take the low drag aerodynamic shape and exceed the performance standards of the ultra-stiff, ultra-light UKSI bike. The finished product had to be lighter, stiffer and more aerodynamic than anything else on the market. Thanks to its expertise in material selection, laminate design, test and development, they did it - in an industry-beating timescale.
