Cutting-edge really is a phrase you can use when describing Bionica Systems.

Expert manufacturers of professional grade CNC milling machines, the company are one of a plethora of brilliant manufacturers with technical expertise and a hunger for growth that form North Devon’s advanced engineering cluster.

Founder James Marchant already has a track record of nurturing successful businesses, setting up and raising significant investment for 3D printing firm Iron Core Ltd in 2012, which he sold his stake in 2016.

Described as a ‘business and technology problem-solver’, the 31-year-old is seeking similar sustainable and rapid growth with Bionica, which is based in Great Torrington.
“Devon is a great place to build successful businesses. There’s a diverse talent pool, a network of similarly-minded businesses and a passion to succeed. We are able to tap into that as we expand our client base across the UK."

A business and technology advisor to the UK Government, James is also a STEM Ambassador, encouraging school-aged students to consider further study and careers in science, technology, engineering and Mathematics.

With a nautical passion that can be easily pursued in the South West (he has a boat nearby at Instow), and a passion for the region, he adds: “It’s a wonderful part of the world to live and achieve your business dreams. Devon’s reputation as an advanced engineering hub continues to grow and I’m proud that Bionica Systems Group and our team is part of that success story.”
