Work with us

The AMRC is here to help manufacturing businesses become more competitive through the application of new techniques, technologies and processes.


We have over 80 fee-paying members, ranging from global giants like Boeing, Airbus, Rolls-Royce, BAE Systems and Messier-Bugatti-Dowty, to local small businesses and specialist suppliers. Our members have access to our resources and expertise and help to set our research priorities.

Membership is open to all, but you don’t have to be a member to take advantage of our capabilities.

Our resources are open to all manufacturing businesses and we work with hundreds of other companies on specific research projects and business support initiatives.

We have collaborated on over 300 projects with small and medium-sized businesses in the Yorkshire and Humber region alone, creating or safeguarding over 1,200 jobs.

Becoming a partner

Membership of the AMRC is open to any company working in a complementary area or wishing to participate in our research programmes.

We have two tiers of membership:
Tier 1 membership costs £200,000 per year.
Tier 1 partners have an individual seat on the board and the opportunity to influence the direction of future research. Tier 1 partners participate in, and obtain the results of, all generic projects. They can also propose specific projects to the board for approval.

Tier 2 membership costs £30,000 per year.
Tier 2 partners participate in, and obtain the results of, all generic projects. They are represented by a single board member.
