About Us

About us

The Technology Partnership (TTP) was established over 30 years ago to create a world-leading technology and development organisation. Today that enterprise has evolved and grown into TTP Group, a range of businesses focussed on meeting the needs of companies planning to flourish through the use of technology and innovation.

In keeping with the origins, the Group's companies have evolved and continue to develop break-through new products, apply the latest innovations and in many cases develop new technology to meet commercial needs.

As the enterprise has grown, new companies have been created, some of which have remained within TTP Group, while others have been sold, demerged or floated on the London Stock Exchange.

TTP Group is part of the local community and believes in investing in that community. Over the past 30 years, we have developed an excellent relationship with the village of Melbourn. Over the last 30 years, TTP Group has contributed to many community projects in Melbourn, most recently making a £100,000 pledge to enhance science teaching at Melbourn Village College. TTP are long standing supporters of initiatives such as Cambridge Literary Festival, the Cambridge Music Festival, Cambridge Music Festival and National Science Week.
