Londonderry engineering firm MiM is ready for some heavy lifting after enlisting the help of experts from Ulster University.

Thanks to a knowledge transfer partnership (KTP) with the university, Mechanical Installations and Maintenance (MiM) was able to upgrade its 2D design process to more advanced 3D modelling. The company - which provides heavy lifting services and engineers metal-based products - will use the KTP to redevelop heavy lifting device LowerLoad. The design will use steel, so it can be used in sterilised environments like hospitals and restaurants.

Stephen Clarke, KTP associate for MiM, said: "Since the beginning of the KTP eight months ago, the company has secured over £50,000 of new sales and the future looks even brighter with the relaunch of the new and improved LowerLoad."
