Like a 24-hour production line, the manufacturing sector never stands still. It’s constantly evolving, using new knowledge, innovations and technologies to make things better, faster, cheaper and greener.
At the AMRC we’re shaping the future. Our researchers are leading the way on net zero. On data analytics and AI. On sustainable fuels. On digitally connected factories and supply chains. And on much more besides.
We’re also helping to secure UK manufacturing, training hundreds of apprentices and reskilling the current workforce to create the pool of talent the sector needs to thrive and grow.Talk to us
Our strategy for the future is based around six core themes:
Digital technology is transforming manufacturing. Whether it’s driving design, improving assembly processes or monitoring equipment, digital technologies are making manufacturing more productive and sustainable.
From planes and trains to cars and trucks, we’re applying our expertise to unlock new technology and help companies of all sizes develop manufacturing processes that allow goods and services to move around the world in a more sustainable way.
We are improving local people’s life chances and the regional economies in our main locations of South Yorkshire, Lancashire and North Wales.
This decade has been marked by a series of disruptions to the global supply chain. At the AMRC, we’re using our unique position to develop capability and create more resilient supply chains here in the UK.
As sustainability shoots up the agenda, we’re playing our part in making UK manufacturing cleaner, greener, and fit for the future.
We’re training the next generation of advanced engineers — and upskilling the current workforce. Because even with the most cutting edge technology in the world, you’ll always need brilliant people.
