AMRC Cymru opens in North Wales

AMRC Cymru, a new £20m state-of-the-art research and development facility in Broughton, has been described by Welsh government ministers as a ‘game changer’ for the economies of North Wales and the northern powerhouse.

Officially opened in November 2019, and situated in the Deeside Enterprise Zone, AMRC Cymru focuses on advanced manufacturing sectors including aerospace, automotive, nuclear and food. With Airbus as the first major tenant and much more planned, it is predicted the new facility could increase GVA to the Welsh economy by as much as £4bn over the next 20 years.

Only months after opening its doors, AMRC Cymru started playing an essential role in an unfamiliar game, helping save lives in the fight against COVID-19 as a production facility for thousands of vital medical ventilators, demonstrating the HVM Catapult’s versatility and responsiveness in the face of a global crisis.
