PTC Becomes Newest Member to Join MTC


The Manufacturing Technology Centre is pleased to announce an exciting new partnership with digital engineering specialist PTC, who join as a Tier 2 Member.

PTC and the MTC share a common interest in the delivery of smart factory innovation to UK manufacturers, and the MTC is embracing PTC’s software and expertise in this area.

PTC enables global manufacturers to digitally transform their business with software solutions that enable them to accelerate product and service innovation, improve operational efficiency, and increase workforce productivity.

In combination with an extensive partner network, PTC provides customers with flexible options to deploy technology and drive digital transformation – either on premises, in the cloud, or via its pure SaaS platform.  PTC UK is headquartered in Farnborough, Hampshire and has over 200 UK based employees.

Speaking about the new partnership, Paul Haimes, VP of Pre-Sales at PTC said:

PTC has a long history of support for the High Value Manufacturing Catapult centres and we’re delighted to be partnering with the MTC. At PTC, we recognise the critical work being done at the MTC to drive the adoption of Industry 4.0 technologies – both in the UK’s larger engineering OEMs and, most importantly, in the SMB space. I’m looking forward to seeing our technologies in use across the MTC’s broad range of projects.

PTC decided to become an MTC member after the organisations collaborated on smart factory projects. These include VIVAR, a project for MTC members that developed augmented manufacturing operations, and DigiProp, which created an Industry 4.0 development environment for an aerospace consortium.

The organisations are now planning to collaborate in the area of model-based definition via the MTC’s Core Research Programme, and to open up access to Industry 4.0 technologies to UK manufacturers via the Smart Factory Innovation Hub initiative.

Thomas Driscoll, Principal Research Engineer at the MTC said:

We have been collaborating with PTC for a number of years, so I’m really pleased to see the relationship reinforced via this membership. The link between the physical world and the digital is key to so many of our industrial projects. Partnering with PTC in this area will further our ability to deliver innovation to UK manufacturing.
