The AMRC is here to help manufacturing businesses become more competitive through the application of new techniques, technologies and processes.
We have over 70 fee-paying members, from global giants such as 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 take full membership to take advantage of our capabilities and expertise. We work with hundreds of other companies on specific research projects and business support initiatives. Our resources are open to all manufacturing businesses. In the Yorkshire and Humber region alone, we have collaborated on over 300 projects with small and medium-sized businesses, creating or safeguarding over 1200 jobs.
Until April 2014, small and medium-sized companies can apply for a £5000 innovation voucher for high value manufacturing from the Technology Strategy Board, which can be invested in collaborative R&D with ourselves or another centre in the High Value Manufacturing Catapult.
