Bank of Ireland Irish Manufacturing Research

Irish Manufacturing Research (IMR) is delighted to welcome Bank of Ireland (BOI) as their newest community member. The partnership enables the sharing of information to a broad network of Irish manufacturing companies.

Micheal Cassidy, CTO of IMR said:

“We see huge value in partnering to share information to a broad network of Irish manufacturing companies and to delivering highly impactful collaborative R&D with Irish industry to support them in their digitalisation and sustainable transformations.  IMR’s network includes over 150 SME and multinational companies, who collectively define the future opportunities for Irish manufacturing to sustain its world-leading position.

IMR’s team includes over 70 researchers across four thematic research pillars: Digitisation, Robotics and Automation, Design for Manufacturing, and Sustainable Manufacturing.  Together with Bank of Ireland, we look forward to bringing our combined expertise to an even wider industry network, to help support their strategic transformation journeys, to support upskilling into new technology areas, and to inform investment on the factory of the future.”

Bank of Ireland’s sectors team, including Manufacturing, is a differentiator in that sector heads are recruited directly from industry and bring perspective and insights to our clients that only first-hand experience can provide.

The Sectors Team is responsible for monitoring industry developments, providing commercial insights and identifying potential opportunities and threats for both Bank of Ireland and its customers. In addition, the Sectors Team supports the development of effective product propositions which cater to customer needs and provide specialist knowledge to our network of relationship managers.

This decade is an exciting time for Manufacturing with challenges and opportunities arising out of both the Sustainability and Digital agendas. Innovation is more important than ever as enterprises navigate these global trends and grow their businesses. Bank of Ireland is a long-standing trusted partner to Irish Manufacturing companies working across multiple industry sectors. They understand client needs, their investment cycle, and the need for regular expenditure to maintain growth, innovation, and profitability in this dynamic sector. Bank of Ireland are eager to support progressive, innovative Manufacturing companies in the further development of their businesses in 2021 and during this exciting decade.

“Bank of Ireland and our head of Manufacturing Conor Magee are excited to be joining IMR IIIat this time and are delighted to share our most recent Manufacturing Insights and Outlook paper outlining the latest trends and future developments in Irish Manufacturing.”
