The Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) was established in 2010 as an independent Research & Technology Organisation (RTO) with the objective of bridging the gap between academia and industry – often referred to as ‘the valley of death’.
We develop and prove innovative manufacturing processes and technologies in an agile, low risk environment, in partnership with industry, academia and other institutions. We focus on delivering bespoke manufacturing system solutions for our customers.
We also operate some of the most advanced manufacturing equipment in the world, and employ a team of highly skilled engineers, many of whom are leading experts in their field. This creates a high quality environment for the development and demonstration of new processes and technologies on an industrial scale.
The MTC’s areas of expertise are directly relevant to both large and small companies, and are applicable across a wide range of industry sectors. The MTC’s members include global manufacturing companies from multiple sectors. Research partners include the University of Birmingham, University of Nottingham, Loughborough University and TWI Ltd.
The MTC is part of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, supported by Innovate UK.
Inspiring Great British manufacturing on the global stage
We provide integrated manufacturing system solutions for customers large and small, across sectors as diverse as automotive, aerospace, rail, informatics, food & drink, construction/civil engineering, electronics, oil & gas and defence.
We can help companies manufacture faster, at a consistently higher quality and lower cost, in an agile environment in partnership with industry and academia.
We continually encourage young people into exciting careers in engineering, to develop and embed technologies that will impact UK industry for years to come.
Our facilities provide a fantastic environment for the development and demonstration of new technologies on an industrial scale, offering flexibility to our growing membership, clients and research partners.
