We have two operating segments:
• Manufacturing Technologies

Throughout our history we have made a significant commitment to research and development with around 13% to 18% of annual sales invested in R&D and engineering.
Diversity and Inclusion
Renishaw recognises that increasing diversity in our company will enable us to be a responsible and productive business that is powered by talented people with different backgrounds and perspectives. Providing a great place for our people to work, grow and contribute is central to our company strategy.
Led by employee representatives, the UK EDI Group was formed in 2019 to tackle the opportunities and challenges faced by the business in relation to this subject. The group supports diversity and inclusion initiatives throughout the business, including celebrating awareness days and providing information to colleagues in the form of videos, online communications, guest speakers and colleague-to-colleague drop-in sessions.
We have around 90 D&I champions across our UK sites including members from our early careers community, and from across the business including those at Board and Director level. The EDI Group purpose: “To establish a more inclusive culture and diverse workforce at Renishaw by promoting equality and diversity through a committed collaborative approach.”
Our approach to corporate responsibility
Sustainability is an integral part of our purpose to ‘Transform Tomorrow Together’.
It’s our ambition to become a sustainability leader, working in partnership with our customers, suppliers and local communities to create positive change.
In November 2021, we committed to a Net Zero target of 2050, at the latest. We realise that becoming a sustainable business requires a lot more than achieving Net Zero emissions - that's why we've also assessed the United Nation's ‘Sustainable Development Goals’ (SDGs) and identified three that are most relevant to our business, and where we believe we can make the greatest impact.
We aim to be an inspiring employer, a responsible business, and we recognise the impact we have on our communities around the world.
Our many years of corporate responsibility activities have provided us with a solid foundation to build on as we invest in creating a safe and sustainable future for all.
We currently employ just under 450 graduates, placements and apprentices with the majority based at our Gloucestershire and South Wales sites. We also offer a small number of programmes at our Edinburgh and Exeter sites.
