As a catalyst for the growth and success of the UK advanced manufacturing, the AMRC works with manufacturers of all sizes from all sectors helping them turn ideas into commercial applications by addressing the gap between technology, concept and commercialisation.

The Centre works with over a hundred industrial partners ranging from global giants such as BAE Systems, Boeing, Rolls Royce and Airbus. The newly established North West Centre is a facility for advanced manufacturing research and excellence to drive productivity and innovation gains throughout Lancashire.

The AMRC North West is already working with a number of Lancashire-based manufacturers to de-risk their journey into the digitalisation of manufacturing and developing new products and processes.
