We are developing automotive products and manufacturing processes to technology readiness levels (TRL) of 6 and above and offering the opportunity to develop pre-production demonstration cells that transfer processes and products directly into a partner’s facilities.

Our expertise in the almost weightless world of carbon fibre composite materials was key to luxury, high-performance sports car manufacturer McLaren Automotive setting up a new production plant close to the AMRC.

As we move rapidly towards fully electric vehicles, the lightweighting talents of the AMRC will be critical to the motor industry.
