The Silverstone Technology Cluster is exactly what is needed in today’s environment, where it is more important than ever to bring companies together, encourage them to collaborate and increase not only their competitiveness but also that of the UK as a whole, and so we are delighted to be part of it. It really works.
James Reeves, Managing Director, voxeljet UK
STC is very much about empowering the high-tech companies within a given region. It’s clear the people and organisations behind it are knowledgeable, well connected and determined to make this one of the UK’s stand-out industry clusters and of global significance. Why would any business specialising in engineering, technology and manufacturing not want to be a part of that?
Paul Waldron, Managing Director, EDM Precision
What the STC is doing is very powerful and exactly the sort of thing that is needed, so we were very keen to join.
Rob Rowsell, Engineering Manager, Wirth Research
Joining the STC as a member was a no brainer to be honest. We’re an SME already doing well in engineering but the STC is going to open up so many more opportunities for all the high-tech companies within the cluster, particularly in terms of growth, skills and new technologies, skills. The Government and industry are sitting up and taking notice which puts us in a great position to benefit when they start to become involved.
Grant Lockhead, Managing Director, Special Ops
We would not hesitate to encourage any other business to become a member of the STC if they are interested in joining a community of businesses keen to pursue and develop important business links, and work towards a larger supportive network along with current STC members.
Marcus Trofimov, Managing Director, Silverstone Composites

Knowledge Sharing

In the ever-changing landscape of hi-tech engineering, electronics and software, there is no substitute for hearing directly from the people shaping and steering the industries. Through our special interest groups, we not only share the latest ideas and technologies, but also stimulate debate, helping our members to learn from one another.

Building Business Connections

Having a forum where you can easily meet everyone in your ecosystem is a game-changer. Regardless of their place in the value chain (upstream or downstream), the opportunity to make those connections helps build your own powerful network.

Raising Brand Awareness

STC can help organisations build their public persona with the people that matter. Through STC events, sponsorship and speaking opportunities, you can ensure that you raise the profile of your business with the key individuals at the heart of the cluster.
