The crucial ingredient of our success for more than 200 years.
In a world of change, our continued growth will come from our ability to turn scientific expertise and creative thinking into compelling new propositions that create real value for our customers and the world. For us, this is the definition of innovation.
As a leading science and technology company, we’re continuously inventing new and better products, technologies and processes. And we’re committed to creating an environment where these innovations can flourish. That’s as much about encouraging creativity and innovation within our business as it is about engaging with the world outside in a spirit of partnership and collaboration.
Investing in the future
Innovation doesn’t always begin in the lab and delivering successful ideas can take time; that’s why we’re prepared to take a long-term view, making well considered investments in the future. Yet we know the importance of being one step ahead, so we’re equally committed to investing in the processes that bring breakthrough science and new products to the market faster and more cost-effectively. We also run programmes internally and externally to foster new ideas from our people, our partners and our collaborations.
Investing in our people
Yet, the biggest reason why we’re at the forefront of scientific development is our people. JM is full of incredibly talented people with a real passion for science and commitment to innovation.
Our range of initiatives enable professional development, including working in cross-sector teams, colleague shadowing and mentoring, innovation projects, formal training and memberships of professional organisations, so our people can be the best they can be and take pride in creating a cleaner, healthier world.
Innovation Factory is our team dedicated to helping support and develop our approach to innovation. Tasked with identifying fresh new ideas and nurturing breakthrough technologies, the team offers insight, resources and practical support to encourage and accelerate innovation across the whole of the Johnson Matthey group. Its objective? To help surface the best ideas and innovations within the business and support their further development into value-driving customer propositions.
Innovation Factory is also briefed with identifying synergies and growth opportunities outside the business. Our team is always looking for opportunities where we can call upon our unique experience and expertise – from regulatory to supply chain, research to manufacturing – to collaborate and create fruitful new partnerships to bring innovations to market.
