Our Vision

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

Only 5 years after we opened, we now employ more than 400 staff, have over 85 industrial members and operate in sectors as diverse as automotive, aerospace, rail, informatics, food & drink, construction/ civil engineering, electronics, oil & gas and defence. 

Strategically, we will continually work to:

  • Accelerate the UK's industrial growth
  • Deliver innovation
  • Change the way businesses compete
  • Create and embed skills
  • Maximise synergies within supply chains

From encouraging young people into careers in engineering, to developing the technologies that will impact industry for years to come, our focus is to deliver integrated manufacturing systems solutions in an agile environment in partnership with industry, academia and other institutions.

Our world-class, state-of-the-art facilities provide an unparalleled environment for the development and demonstration of new technologies on an industrial scale, offering flexibility to our growing membership, clients and research partners.
