About The Manufacturing Technology Centre

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 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).

We're always looking to challenge the boundaries of manufacturing in the UK.

Also situated on the MTC campus is the advanced manufacturing training and conference centre - a new, purpose-built facility equipped with world leading technology to train aspiring and existing engineers and technicians for UK manufacturing, with an unparalleled conference and events venue.

This centre will provide apprenticeships, graduate development programmes and courses to up skill engineers for high value manufacturing
