About CloudNC

CloudNC develops advanced software that enables companies to create efficient and reliable manufacturing processes in a single click. Our technology means companies who make products can now create them more efficiently, either by using our software to accelerate their own operations, or through manufacture at our own factory in Essex, UK. The company, founded in 2015, consists of a world-class team combining expertise in computer science and physical manufacturing, and is backed by leading venture capital firms Atomico and Episode 1 Ventures, alongside Autodesk and Lockheed Martin as strategic partners.

Leadership Team

Theo Saville

Theo Saville

CEO & Co-Founder

Theo is a Manufacturing and Mechanical Engineer (M.Eng, University of Warwick), with a background in defence, laser-based metals 3D printing research at Warwick Manufacturing Group, and sales.

Theo entered metals 3D printing expecting to be able to harness a technology ready to disrupt manufacturing, but gradually became disillusioned with the state and future applicability of the technology. He was exposed to CNC machining around the same time and realised the disruptive potential if it could be automated to the same degree as plastics 3D printing, and he co-founded CloudNC to realise that opportunity. Theo was recognised in the 2019 Forbes 30 under 30 in Manufacturing & Industry.

Chris Emery

Chris Emery

Chief Scientist & Co-Founder

Chris has expertise in the fields of 3D Graphics and High Performance Computing, and an M.Eng in Computing from Imperial College London.

Chris has been programming since the age of 12, having been coached by his parents (both software engineers) and started selling shareware when he was 15. He co-created “EventBox”, which was acquired by Realmac Software within 12 months of launch. He then worked as a software engineer at Google, before leaving to found Five Sided Software.

Prior to CloudNC, he developed a GPU accelerated lightmapping engine of his own design for mobile games. Chris was recognised in the 2019 Forbes 30 under 30 in Manufacturing & Industry.

Andy Cheadle

Andy Cheadle


Across a 20-year career Andy has scaled and led software engineering teams from the dozens in his own startup (sold), to teams of hundreds as Chief Engineer at BAE Systems Applied Intelligence, and Executive Director of Software Engineering at McLaren Applied Technologies.

With a computer science PhD, multiple publications, an active presence in the academic community, and deep cross-functional domain expertise in software engineering, product leadership, software team scaling, technology commercialisation, and manufacturing, Andy is well-placed to take CloudNC’s solutions to the world.
