Inspiring Great British Manufacturing

Welcome to the MTC

Challenging the boundaries of manufacturing

We have a clear vision - to inspire Great British manufacturing, on the global stage.

The Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) develops and proves 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 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 which is supported by Innovate UK (formerly the Technology Strategy Board).

“When I look back on how much we’ve achieved in just a few short years, I can't help but feel excited by the prospect of what we will achieve by 2020."

Clive Hickman

The MTC is an excellent networking opportunity and we have gained real insight into the future of manufacturing. SQS supports the MTC in producing a higher quality manufacturing sector.
