The Advanced Manufacturing & Innovation District is a 2,000acre centre of excellence in metals and materials manufacturing.

It is a core priority in the Sheffield City Region and strategically located close to existing centres of excellent, and adjacent the M1 motorway and rail links. It builds on Sheffield City Region’s Enterprise Zone status and is now home to leading UK industries, including McLaren, Boeing, Rolls Royce, Aloca, Tata, Outokumpu and Forgemasters.

AMID will link the current Advanced Manufacturing Park and Sheffield Business Park, creating a central hub to the Innovation District. We have been working with key partners, including Peel, Harworth Estates and the University of Sheffield, to look at strategic planning for the site which create optimum conditions for development.
