AddParts shortlisted for Digital Technology and Innovation at leading industry awards

January 11, 2024

AddParts, part of Addition Design Ltd, has been shortlisted in the Digital Engineering/Technology and Manufacturing Innovation categories at the Insider Made in Yorkshire Awards to be held in March at The Royal Armouries in Leeds.

The Digital Technology Award is for the company that has best used or developed software, technology or technical processes to solve problems or add value for customers.

The Manufacturing Innovation Award is for the manufacturing company that has generated a substantial financial return and impact on a regional/national/international level from an innovative product or process designed and manufactured in their region.

AddParts supplies on-demand digital spare parts for production and packing lines, supporting maintenance and operations teams by using cutting-edge technology to reduce downtime by up to 90% and spare part costs by up to 50%.

The company 3D scans critical components on-site for storage on a secure, tailored digital inventory. The parts are supplied in like-for-like, traceable materials in 48 hours, and are manufactured at a dedicated, UK-based facility using industrial 3D printers.

Tom Fripp, Director said “AddParts has created an entirely new arm for Addition and has established itself as a highly scalable, in-demand and innovative business. Since the release of AddParts as a dedicated service in mid-2023, upwards of 50% of the company’s revenue has been generated by AddParts alone and this is expected to grow significantly. Sales for AddParts have already eclipsed those of the rest of the company’s offerings and continue to drive significant change and cost savings for customers too.”

The annual awards event celebrates world-class companies based in Yorkshire and the Humber and the products they are making here and selling across the world.

The black-tie dinner will take place at New Dock Hall, Royal Armouries, Leeds, on Thursday 7 March. It is sponsored by Made Smarter, BDO, Castle Employment, Rathbones incorporating Investec Wealth & Management (UK), and Mills & Reeve.
