THE National Metals Technology Centre is joining forces with Sheffield University’s Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre.

NAMTEC is relocating from Tata Steel’s Swinden Research and Technology Centre in Rotherham to the AMRC’s base on the Advanced Manufacturing Park, at Catcliffe.

AMRC director Professor Keith Ridgway said NAMTEC’s skills in helping SMEs develop through training and technology transfer would complement the AMRC’s work with manufacturers.

NAMTEC chief executive Dr Alan McLelland said: “This is a unique opportunity for both organisations which will directly benefit the UK manufacturing supply chain.”
