Agemaspark was founded in 2002 by Paul Stockhill and has grown to approx. £1m turnover, employing 16 people inc. five apprentices. In December 2020 the purchase of a new 3D additive manufacturing EOS 290 sees potential future growth in the aerospace and food manufacturing sectors where the business has been carrying out R&D in conjunction with Rolls-Royce/TWI and large food manufacturers to develop new solutions using new conformal cooling technology.
In 2014 Paul was invited by Doncaster Council/Baker Dearing to support a bid for a UTC. He became a full member of the project steering group in 2015-16 and was part of the bid team that secured the go ahead. Paul became Vice Chair of the project group in 2018 to see the design and build of the school. Agemaspark also contributed £10,000 towards the project support during the bid period.
On opening of the utc in September 2020 he became Vice Chair of the local governing board and an active member of the business employer committee creating projects for all year groups.
