Marches Centre of Manufacturing and Technology

The Marches Centre of Manufacturing and Technology [MCMT] operate two state-of-the-art manufacturing training facilities in Bridgnorth and Shrewsbury, providing learners and employers with access to world class apprenticeships and upskilling courses.

Led by a consortium of Classic Motor Cars, Grainger & Worrall, Salop Design & Engineering and Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ training provider In-Comm, MCMT covers more than 40,000 sq ft of dedicated space, designed with one vision in mind…to ‘inspire Engineers for a Changing World’.

We achieve this by combining the best trainers with the best equipment and the best technology, with more than £5m spent on creating learning environments that will challenge individuals to fulfil their potential.

This includes access to a dedicated CNC Zone, advanced fluid and power controls and the latest robotics and metrology, not to mention dedicated vehicle trim and finish sections.

Our Centres

The Marches Centre of Manufacturing & Techn­ology is located in two specialist academies in Bridgnorth and Shrewsbury, covering a stunning 40,000 sq ft of dedicated learning space.

Both facilities have been developed to replicate real-world manufacturing environments and feature state-of-the-art technology that is unrivalled in the UK.

As well as being a base for learning, all of the capabilities are available for SMEs to use as part of our recently launched Engineering Club, with view to support manufacturers with process improvement and prototype development.

In addition to Bridgnorth and Shrewsbury, companies and apprentices can also tap into In-Comm’s Technical Academy in Aldridge, which also features a dedicated fluid-power cell and a new power press and tooling cell.
