Innovation & technology

We drive innovation at the 3M BIC and are at the forefront of applied technology, housing transformational capabilities for product design, prototyping and product verification.

Having invested over £4m in technology, our on-site cutting-edge technology capabilities enable us to address technical challenges. We help companies foster innovation by taking our clients through all stages of design to manufacture.

Our range of expertise includes:

  • Product, process and service design
  • Prototyping in virtual or solid form
  • Verification of form and function

With our in-house design engineers, we can offer a holistic and bespoke approach to problem-solving, creating a concept from idea to production right through to commercialisation.

Working in collaboration we can create innovative solutions that make tangible improvements.

Our design engineers and technical experts have experience in applying a range of technologies to problem solving and innovation in a business environment. Our capabilities are complemented by access to the skills, facilities and experience of the University of Huddersfield and other partners, such as the National Physical Laboratory (NPL).

We work across supply chains for engineering, aerospace, automotive, medical technology (MedTech), heritage and the creative industries.
