If you’re looking for an expert in your industry, 
you’re in the right place.

From aerospace to security and defence, construction to power and energy and many more, we’ve got multi-sector expertise to help you find progress wherever you are experiencing challenges.

Working across a diverse range of sectors, we provide innovative manufacturing solutions for organisations large and small and often transfer knowledge gained from one sector to another

We can help you manufacture faster, at a higher quality and lower cost, and provide support from both industry and academia. With our flexible support, world-class testing facilities and unrivalled technical knowledge we’ll help you develop world-leading manufacturing processes and technologies – whatever sector you’re in. Discover some of the sectors we work in below.

Power & Energy

Over 177,000 people in the UK are directly employed in this ever-changing sector (ONS, 2020), with low carbon and renewable energies seeing the biggest recent growth as the country strives to reach Net Zero. We can help with a wide range of challenges – from decommissioning in the oil and gas sectors to delivering new and advanced nuclear power, enhancing offshore wind power or developing low carbon hydrogen fuel cells. Our team contains experts in electrification, hydrogen, nuclear, wind, solar and tidal energy.

The UK aerospace industry has grown by 17% in the last ten years (2020, ADS) but needs rapid growth to meet global demands. Advances like urban air mobility and sub-regional air travel present exciting opportunities. Using technologies such as additive manufacturing and laser-based manufacturing, our aerospace engineering experts can enhance production capabilities, future-proof manufacturing processes, and aid R&D for next-generation aircraft, ensuring your organisation is prepared for these advancements.

Space is one of the fastest growing industries in the UK, but times are changing rapidly and there are a number of challenges that will have to be addressed in the coming years in order to keep up with demands. A move towards “new space” – smaller, more accessible space assets used for commercial prospects – is expected, and we can help businesses gear up for this. Whether you’re looking to transition from bespoke to production scale manufacture of small satellites, want to refresh your supply chain development or need some support to access new technologies, our experts can help.
