The MTC helps HVM Catapult bring UK innovations to the market

Watch our new HVM Catapult video to see how the High Value Manufacturing Catapult benefits UK manufacturing businesses of all sizes. It provides a great insight into the world of the HVM Catapults and shows how they benefit UK manufacturing businesses of all sizes.

HVM Catapult is a strategic government initiative that aims to revitalise the UK manufacturing industry and was implemented, along with six other similar programmes in different sectors, following extensive independent research - notably the Hauser and Dyson reports.

The HVM Catapults are overseen by Innovate UK (formerly the Technology Strategy Board), after being established with over £200 million of government investment.

Each Catapult provides UK business with a gateway to access the best manufacturing talent and facilities in the country. They also create a two-way communication channel to the heart of government and a valuable conduit for funding from both the public and private sectors for projects and initiatives with due merit.


It is my pleasure to contribute my skills and knowledge to a world class research centre.

I feel proud when our ideas and solutions help to solve current and future manufacturing challenges. Certainly, it’s not business as usual.
