MORE REGARDING : THE FACTORY 2050 ENTERPRISE ZONE
Plans to create a centre of excellence for advanced manufacturing at Sheffield Business Park took a hugew step forward when Sheffield City Council approved plans for Factory 2050 to be sited adjacent to Sheffield City Region Enterprise Zone.
The £43 million stunning circular building now combines a range of technologies, including advanced robotics, flexible automation, unmanned work-space, off-line printing in virtual environments linked to plug-and-play robotics, 3D printing from flexible automated systems, man-machine interfaces, and new programming and training tools.
The state of the art development was built by the University of Sheffield, consolidating the success of their investment in the original Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre on the Advanced Manufacturing Park at Catcliffe. Since the first University building opened there in 2004, four further new buildings and two extensions have been added to provide a current total of around 30,000 sq. m of accommodation.
The new location – sited directly opposite the existing developments on the other side of the Parkway – helps to secure Sheffield’s place at the heart of advanced manufacturing in the UK and as a key player on the global stage.
Sheffield South East MP Clive Betts, whose constituency includes the Business Park, said at the outset that he was fully behind this amazing new development.
“Over the last decade we’ve seen the enormous impact of the University’s active involvement in advanced manufacturing, creating high quality jobs and hundreds of new opportunities for apprenticeships, as well as attracting some of the world’s best known aerospace and engineering companies to work and invest here.
