News: AMRC's excellent performance for Boeing


The University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) with Boeing in Rotherham has been awarded a Boeing Performance Excellence Award for 2011.

The world's leading aerospace company issues the award annually to recognize suppliers who have achieved superior performance. The AMRC maintained a Silver composite performance rating for each month of the 12-month performance period, from October 1, 2010, to September 30, 2011.

The AMRC, based on the Advanced Manufacturing Park in Rotherham, already enjoys a fantastic global reputation. It is a £100m collaboration among more than 40 partner organisations, comprising world leaders in the aerospace supply chain, key government offices and international academic institutions. It specialises in identifying, researching and solving advanced manufacturing problems with research carried out on new and exotic materials such as titanium, inconel and composites.

This year, Boeing recognized 529 suppliers who achieved either a Gold or Silver level Boeing Performance Excellence Award. The AMRC is one of 407 suppliers to receive the Silver level of recognition.

Prof Keith Ridgway CBE, research director at the AMRC, said: "This award is a tribute to the talent and dedication of our team.

"We are currently expanding our activities significantly through our work in the High Value Manufacturing Catapult and the new University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Institute, and this is proof that we still lead the world in innovative research that delivers real value to industry."

Last year, the AMRC was recognised as Supplier of the Year in the International (Technology) category by The Boeing Company.
