The tie-up between the billion pound turnover business and the MTC further strengthens the MTC's growing construction and infrastructure portfolio, as it develops systems and processes to help improve performance and productivity in the construction sector.
Hertfordshire-based Willmott Dixon has more than 3,000 employees and is run by the fifth generation of the same family who established the business in 1852. The company is a major housebuilder, delivering more than 2,000 homes a year, but also works across other sectors including education, public sector, health, leisure, office, retail and fit-out. Major projects include the National College for High Speed Rail in Birmingham.
The team working with the MTC to improve productivity within the business is led by Willmott Dixon director Tim Carey who heads their National Product Team. He said:
The MTC already has a proven track record developing new technologies and manufacturing systems for a range of other sectors including defence, automotive and aerospace, and is promoting the advantages of adapting technologies like automation, robotics and virtual reality for the benefit of the construction industry.
Trudi Sully, associate director for construction and infrastructure at the MTC, said they were delighted to have Willmott Dixon joining.
