Established in 1919, the Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA) has been at the core of the UK’s engineering-based manufacturing economy for over a century.

The MTA exists to promote the interests and be the voice of the engineering-based manufacturing technologies sector in the UK.

The MTA is the UK trade association for companies in the manufacturing technology sector. MTA members design, manufacture and supply the advanced machinery, equipment and intellectual property that enable the creation of the products we rely on every day and that drive our economy.

The expanding scope of the engineering and manufacturing technologies sector has seen the MTA evolve to ensure it remains a truly representative organisation. This is evidenced by the new MTA cluster, which encompasses the Engineering Industries Association (EIA), Additive Manufacturing UK (AMUK), the MACH Exhibition, the Engineering Supply Chain Show (ESC) and the Technology Design and Innovation (TDI) Challenge.

Our key activities include:


Engineering and Manufacturing Sector


Representing engineering based manufacturing and supporting the advanced engineering sector through advocacy, media contact and networking.


Industry Intelligence

Providing relevant and specific industry intelligence as well as access to the latest developments in research and technology.


Encouraging Talent

Encouraging talent through funding and support for workplace training and education initiatives in schools, colleges and universities.

MACH is organised for the industry, by the industry. As organising body, the MTA employs key staff who are directly involved in delivering a high-quality, relevant exhibition that best reflects the interests of its members as well as the wider manufacturing community. To support this team, the Association appoints an Exhibition Committee that oversees all major decisions relating to the event.

Comprising representatives from MTA member companies, the Committee meets on a regular basis to ensure that MACH lives up to the expectations of visitors and exhibitors alike. As exhibitors themselves, they all care passionate about making MACH the best possible exhibition for the sector.
