The AMRC transforms industrial and economic performance by making step changes in productivity, increasing competitiveness, developing new products and processes and training new talent and skills.

Work is carried out alongside over 100 industrial partners including industry giants such as Boeing, Rolls-Royce, BAE Systems and Airbus, as well as smaller organisations such as Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs). These partnerships can be for one-off projects or take the form of long-term collaborative efforts.

The AMRC has expanded from its foundation in 2003 to become central to the Advanced Manufacturing Park in South Yorkshire, employing over 500 highly qualified researchers and engineers from all over the world. The operations are also no longer exclusive to South Yorkshire, the expansion to AMRC North West bringing the AMRC’s capabilities to Broughton and Preston.

The AMRC has 11 core capabilities:

  • Additive Manufacturing
  • AMRC Training Centre
  • Castings
  • Composite Manufacturing
  • Design and Prototyping
  • Integrated Manufacturing
  • Machining
  • Manufacturing Intelligence
