Who We Are:
Renishaw is a global, high precision metrology and healthcare technology group.
At Renishaw, we have spent 50 years engineering change. Our company was established in 1973 by Sir David McMurtry, Executive Chairman, and John Deer, Non-Executive Deputy Chairman. Renishaw’s first product, the touch-trigger probe, was invented by Sir David to solve a specific inspection requirement for the Olympus engines used in Concorde. This innovative product led to a revolution in three-dimensional co-ordinate measurement.
Throughout our history we have made a significant commitment to research and development with typically around 13% to 18% of annual sales invested in R&D and engineering. This has enabled us to design, develop and deliver solutions that provide unparalleled precision, control and reliability.
Our commitment to investments in people, product development and production capacity, are all underpinned by a commitment to be a more sustainable organisation, to ensure we continue transforming tomorrow together.
What We Do:
We design, develop and deliver solutions and systems that provide unparalleled precision, control and reliability. We are also a world leader in the field of additive manufacturing (also referred to as metal 3D printing), where we design and produce industrial machines which ‘print’ parts from metal powder. From transport to agriculture, electronics to healthcare, our breakthrough technology transforms product performance.
Our purpose is to make it possible to create the products, materials and therapies that will define our world in the decades to come and touch billions of lives.

We have 77 offices in 36 countries, with over 5,000 employees worldwide. Over 3,000 people are employed within the UK where we carry out the majority of our research and development and manufacturing.
