We’re delighted to announce that Jamie Thums, Chief Operating Officer for Lintott – a part of nmcn Plc – has been recognised with an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List 2020 for “Service to Manufacturing in East Anglia”.
Acquired by nmcn in October 2019, Lintott specialises in the design and manufacture of electrical control systems, software integration and factory-built water and wastewater treatment systems. Jamie has led Lintott’s approach which delivers a series of positive impacts within the East Anglian region, whilst enhancing the Company’s brand.
Jamie commented: “I am both thrilled and humbled to receive such an honour. Huge thanks to everyone who has supported me, and I look forward to many more years working together to advance the sector, its people and related disciplines.”
Andy Langman, nmcn’s Chief Operating Officer of Water, said: “We are really pleased for Jamie – he has made significant contributions to the manufacturing sector during his career, and his MBE is testament to years of hard work, continued learning and building a positive working culture. Congratulations Jamie!”
Jamie’s role at Lintott has seen him and the team pioneer new systems and processes. This led to an array of business awards and accolades, including a Queen’s Awards for Enterprise in Innovation in 2018. At the same time, to support and encourage the next generation of budding engineers and technicians, Lintott created the “Industry Accelerator” Training Academy. This provides a dedicated learning location populated with the latest design and process control hardware, where academic partners can deliver courses directly within the workplace.
Since 2015, Jamie has been the Chair of the New Anglia Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering sector Group [“NAAME”]. This has involved connecting and creating a network of manufacturing groups across Norfolk and Suffolk. With over 500 members across seven eastern regions, NAAME has the goal of driving significant inclusive economic growth and enriching the wellbeing and prospects for communities throughout the region and is behind and supports several key developments. Two of these are; “Productivity East”, a University of East Anglia [“UEA”] £7.4 million-pound cutting-edge centre for engineering, technology and management situated at the UEA; and an integrated online ‘Talent Sharing Platform’, which will enable regional businesses to share resources during seasonal work patterns and crucially support year-round employment.
If Jamie was not busy enough, he has also just embarked on a PhD research project at the UEA, assessing opportunities to boost operational performance and improve productivity. Jamie is a Chartered Engineer and a Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology [“IET”] and was listed as a “Manufacturing Top 100 figure” in 2018.
