New tenants at AMP

Posted on 12 May 2010 by The Manufacturer

Testing specialist Exova and French high-tech specialist Tecks move into Rotherham's Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP).

They joined 18 other companies at the AMP Technology Centre, which houses offices and workshops and gives guest businesses the advantage of staying in proximity to some of the world’s most advanced manufacturers.

Joe Anwyl, head of business development at the AMP, said: “Interest in the facilities at the park is at an all-time high, as companies from the region and beyond recognise the benefits of being based at the heart of the UK’s advanced materials and metals industry.”

Exova, which is headquartered in Edinburgh, operates from 110 facilities in 25 countries and has over 3,5000 people and a 30-year experience in testing and advisory services.

Teks, a member of the University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre with Boeing (also at the AMP), is a privately owned French company involved in process design and the development of new clean technologies.

The Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre recently announced it will also be based at the AMP in Rotherham. Its building, designed by Bond Bryan Architects to the highest environmental standards, will be completed by late 2011.
