Advanced Materials & Manufacturing (AMM)

Today, our manufacturing sector employs around 150,000 people and turns over a massive £38.6 billion every year. And year after year, our universities produce 2,000 new engineers – all trained in the latest technologies and looking for fresh new challenges.

In Aerospace and Defence, Wales is a hotbed of R&D, and home to over 20% of the UK’s Maintenance Repair & Overhaul (MRO) works.

In the Automotive sector, all eyes are on Wales and our £40 million investment in low carbon projects.

Photonics is booming in Wales too, with Welsh Photonics research developing a global reputation, both for innovation and exploitation of commercial value.

And, high above the West Wales coast and stretching out to sea, you’ll find a dedicated airspace for unmanned aircraft systems / remotely piloted ariel Systems RPAS.

Add to that our three new dedicated Enterprise Zones, each pushing the sector forward, and you can see the joined up approach we’re taking. Business, government, universities, working together to set new standards.
