The Advanced Manufacturing Research Facility (AMRF) is a £20 million scheme commissioned by the Welsh Government (WG) to develop a research and manufacturing facility on the existing site at Broughton in North Wales. The scheme is due to be completed by the end of 2019. It will be operated for the WG by Sheffield Universities Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC), who will run it as an open access advanced research facility, with Airbus also utilising it to develop and test the next generation of wing designs for their aircraft.

The project incorporates the design, manufacture, supply and construction of the AMR Facility at Broughton, North Wales. The structure consists of two single storey open plan manufacturing halls with a two-storey office, four-storey office and plant zone space located at one end.

The scheme began on site in early July 2018 and is progressing rapidly to meet the end of 2019 deadline.





Following a visitor safety briefing and an introduction to the project, guests will be accompanied by our experienced site management team on a tour of the site. There will also be the opportunity for Q&A's throughout, and the chance to meet some of the operatives working on site.
