With help from the European Regional Development Fund, our goal is to help the North West region’s manufacturing community access advanced technologies that will drive improvements in productivity, performance and quality.

AMRC North West is a gateway development, built using a £20m grant from the Lancashire Enterprise Partnership (LEP) Growth Deal, on the Samlesbury Aerospace Enterprise Zone.

We are playing a key role in driving recovery, growth, productivity and innovation, supporting Lancashire firms to compete nationally and internationally. The high-performing technical research and development (R&D) team enhances the manufacturing base of Lancashire, working with both manufacturing companies and their supply chains.

Whether you are a large company or an SME manufacturer who wants to improve your productivity, or if you just want to know more about how AMRC North West can help you – we want to hear from you.
