The High Value Manufacturing Catapult is the go-to place for manufacturing technology innovation in the UK. Our 7 centres across the country collectively cover the full range of manufacturing technology capabilities, from materials to biologics and from additive manufacturing to automation. Our centres offer open access to the leading edge industrial scale equipment, world-class expertise and an environment of collaboration between industry, academia and government. We work with businesses of all sizes and all sectors to take risk out of the innovation process, turning ideas into commercial reality by bridging the gap between technology concept and real commercial value add.
Delivering fundamental and applied research via sector leading technology transfer to automotive, commercial and rail transport.
