Advanced Manufacturing

Industries such as advanced manufacturing are characterised by high levels of innovation, knowledge, skills and investment, and have a particularly important role to play in raising productivity, competitiveness and standards of living. New ideas, technologies and products developed in the manufacturing sector may have important uses in other sectors of the economy, such as life sciences, energy and technology. Higher value industries and activities are also associated with higher levels of productivity and therefore financial rewards to employees for the value they generate.

The Skills and Growth Company will progress a series of high value projects supporting major industrial partners within the automotive and supply chain sector and rail/ engineering this will enhance our SME base within the Borough and build core competencies and skills in the local economy prior to HS2.
