The crucial ingredient of our success for more than 200 years

From our earliest origins as a gold assayer, through to our market-leading inventions in catalytic science and pharmaceuticals, our scientists have long been at the forefront of innovation.


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 our world. For us, this is the definition of innovation.

We are committed to creating an environment where innovation 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.

Innovation Factory

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. It’s 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. We’re 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.
