A great team in engineering

From humble beginnings as mechanical apprentices in Ireland and Wales, Sir David McMurtry and John Deer founded Renishaw, a company with physics, engineering and innovation at its heart.

The Gloucestershire-based company has become one of the world’s foremost manufacturers of precision measurement equipment with a valuation of over £1billion.

Sir David and John are joint winners of the 2012 Swan Medal awarded by the Institute of Physics celebrating physics in business.
