A world-class centre for advanced manufacturing. Open to manufacturers of all sizes.

Our research and development focuses on industry’s commercial requirements and provides lasting value to members.

Our 100-plus industrial members range from global giants like Boeing, Rolls-Royce, BAE Systems and Airbus to small companies, but you don’t have to be a member to take advantage of our world-leading expertise and resources, which are open to manufacturers of all sizes.

The manufacture of full scale demonstrator components at the AMRC validated the new approach in readiness for the launch of our new high technology disc factory near Newcastle.
