Delivering measurement solutions to maximise impact through innovation

Looking for ways to truly drive competitiveness, deliver growth and advance your productivity?

The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) creates value and impact across the UK through measurement infrastructure. We enable enterprises to maximise productivity, accelerate growth, acquire capability and talent for future markets, and improve performance through innovation.

We’re on hand to help and advise.

We work with UK machinery manufacturers to verify and validate through existing or new measurement standards, incremental and radical changes of products, processes, services, and technologies.

NPL is an active member of the Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA), the organisers of MACH, and we are committed to engaging with UK machinery manufacturers to help keep them at the forefront of manufacturing innovation.

Visit us on stand 17-370 in the Education Zone to learn how we can help you innovate and compete, and find out more about our products and service offerings:
