Our experienced teams work directly with manufacturers to improve quality, cost and delivery performance.
As part of the Manufacturing Technology Centre, we can introduce manufacturers to tomorrow’s technologies and help them de-risk their implementation. Our approach ensures rapid and sustainable growth for the businesses we work with, by delivering end-to-end manufacturing systems solutions.
We start with a fully funded line walk. Our initial free-of-charge business review can quickly identify opportunities for cost saving, de-risking and accelerating the introduction of technology and improved processes into your business. By the end of the line walk, we will summarise and prioritise these opportunities with the business to agree on the support required.
Like the National Composites Centre in Bristol, the Manufacturing Technology Centre is part of the network of High Value Manufacturing innovation centres in the UK, established by Innovate UK.
