Our other centres

The National Metals Technology Centre (NAMTEC) is just one part of the University of Sheffield AMRC , a cluster of industry-focused manufacturing R&D centres and supporting facilities within the University.

AMRC also includes the AMRC with Boeing, Nuclear AMRC, Knowledge Transfer Centre and the AMRC Training Centre.


Factory of the Future

AMRC with Boeing

Established in 2001, the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre with Boeing is a world-class centre for innovative research.

The AMRC with Boeing focuses on advanced machining and materials research for aerospace and other high-value manufacturing sectors. All research is led by industrial partners, ensuring that work provides lasting value.

The AMRC with Boeing has 70 member companies, from global aerospace giants to local small businesses; and employs over 200 people, from apprentices to PhDs. It has received numerous awards, including Boeing Supplier of the Year 2010.

The AMRC with Boeing is based in two purpose-built factory-scale facilities on the Advanced Manufacturing Park in Catcliffe, including the recently extended Factory of the Future. The original AMRC building is being expanded and redeveloped to create a new Design Prototype and Test Centre.


Nuclear AMRCNuclear AMRC

Established in 2009, the Nuclear AMRC is applying the AMRC model of collaborative research to the nuclear supply chain. It combines university innovation and industry expertise to help UK manufacturers compete at home and worldwide for work in nuclear new-build and other innovative energy technologies.

The Nuclear AMRC has over 40 member companies, including reactor providers Areva and Westinghouse and leading suppliers such as Rolls-Royce and Sheffield Forgemasters.

It is based in a new research factory on the Advanced Manufacturing Park, with additional laboratory facilities within The University of Manchester Dalton Nuclear Institute.


AMRC Training CentreAMRC Training Centre

Opening in autumn 2013, the AMRC Training Centre will provide the practical and theoretical skills that manufacturing companies need to compete globally, from apprenticeship through to doctorate and MBA level.

The Training Centre will focus on high-level apprentice training for sectors such as aerospace, energy and automotive, and will take up to 250 apprentices a year on behalf of local companies. It will be based in a new 5000 sq m building next to the AMRC campus.


KTCKnowledge Transfer Centre

Opened in early 2012, the AMRC Diamond Jubilee Knowledge Transfer Centre (KTC) provides dedicated meeting, conference and training space to help us engage businesses along the manufacturing supply chain.

The eye-catching building is based around a large training workshop, and also offers highly flexible meeting and teaching rooms. The KTC is equipped with the latest presentation and networking technology, and can host conferences of up to 300 people.


The AMRC with Boeing and Nuclear AMRC are both members of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, a consortium of seven leading manufacturing and process research centres backed by the Technology Strategy Board.

AMRC developments are supported by the European Regional Development Fund .
