Tour of the AMRC
We are delighted that the AMRC is hosting the GMF 2013. This is an opportunity for people to view this world class facility whilst at the trade show and conference. The tour will start at 13:15 and last half an hour. Please book your place on the tour by visiting the Catapult stand (stands 36 & 37) on the day of the festival. Places are strictly limited.
There will be the opportunity to join a whistlestop tour of the AMRC workshops, to see how we bring together world-leading knowledge and state-of-the-art equipment to help businesses become more competitive.
The AMRC with Boeing is located on the Advanced Manufacturing Park in South Yorkshire, on the border of Sheffield and Rotherham. The AMP is just off junction 33 of the M1, and clearly signed from Sheffield Parkway. Look for our large wind turbine.
It is around 15 minutes by taxi from either Sheffield or Rotherham railway station. The AMP is served by the TM Travel A1 bus service between Sheffield and Rotherham.
The nearest airports are Robin Hood (Doncaster); East Midlands; Leeds Bradford; and Manchester.
