Working together

Technology Development

We use our cross-industry expertise to help manufacturers de-risk their research and development of new technologies.

De-risk investment

Access to our cutting-edge equipment and world-class engineers skips the risks and investments of internal R&D. We help ensure you only invest when a technology is suitable at commercial scales.

Supply Chain Development

We use our knowledge of manufacturing to help businesses create resilient supply chains and optimise their existing operations.

R&D Roadmaps

We work with a broad range of partners to plot sector- and technology-specific research and development roadmaps for the UK.

Policy Insight

As trusted government partners, we can help you to secure funding and influence manufacturing policy in the UK.

Collaborative R&D

We create and co-ordinate collaborative R&D projects that push the boundaries of manufacturing innovation across sectors.
