Birmingham engineer seals Royal Approval


A West Midlands engineer, who has put the region on the international manufacturing map, was recognised in the 2024 New Year’s Honours List. Rowan Crozier, CEO of metal pressing, stamping and tooling specialist Brandauer, has been awarded an MBE for services to manufacturing and enterprise. The engineer has helped steer the Birmingham company through the pandemic and towards a record-breaking £9.3m year, sending millions of precision components to more than 26 countries every week. He is also a passionate ambassador for developing the industry professionals of the future, revolutionising the firm’s apprenticeship scheme, and working with In-Comm Training to launch the UK’s first Precision Toolmaking Academy in late 2022.

“I am genuinely shocked to receive this award; you just never expect to be an MBE growing up and certainly not for, in my opinion, just doing my job,” commented Rowan Crozier.
