Developing the Factory of the Future

Wednesday, May 14, 2014

Meg Munn MP recently met Keith Lilley, Director of Estates and Facilities Management at Sheffield University, to discuss plans for the further development of the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre.

At the heart of the new plan is a new 43 million ‘Factory of the Future’, which will contain a range of technologies including advanced robotics and new planning and training tools. It will be a centre for research and demonstration work associated with the next generation of aircraft and energy technologies.

Keith explained that Sheffield University is now one of the leading universities for linking research into concrete developments for industry. Industry’s confidence in the existing Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre is shown by the number of leading companies that are in partnership with the university, including Rolls Royce and Boeing.

Meg said:

"The potential provided by this new development is huge. It can help ensure that the UK continues to be a leading manufacturing country. It also means there will be many more skilled jobs in our area. I will be lobbying for an early decision on the planning application to ensure that this exciting development can go ahead."
