“An investment of larger amounts of the existing R&D budget across the North will have a clear impact on people, delivering cutting-edge education and skills training, and enabling  across a wider network of centres of excellence.


“By doing this and ‘levelling up’ the economy, with investment rooted in manufacturing capability, we will be far better prepared in ensuring the UK is resilient to any number of future challenges.”


It’s not only the ‘levelling up’ agenda where the AMRC North West has an important role to play.


The Prime Minister recently announced a ten-point plan for a green industrial revolution stating that £12bn of government investment will be mobilised to create and support up to 250,000 highly-skilled green jobs, focusing on the UK’s industrial heartlands.


Again, there is a need for action as well as words to turn the vision into reality. Melissa says: “While this sounds like good news, it is


imperative that such announcements become something tangible.


“We’re bringing a strong voice to make the case for backing up these words with delivery and action for the region.


“Over the coming months and years, we will continue to collaborate with manufacturing businesses large and small across Lancashire.


We are here to


act as a catalyst for bringing the sector together across the region to become greater than the sum of its parts

“This excellence is something we’re thrilled to be bringing to the North West, building on the incredible industrial heritage of the region to keep it at the forefront of innovative, advanced manufacturing.”


AMRC North West has been backed by Lancashire Enterprise Partnership (LEP) through £20m growth deal funding. Construction work began on site last November.
