About the Digital Manufacturing Accelerator

The Manufacturing Technology Centre is a brand new initiative, in partnership with the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority, that brings world leading manufacturing research, technology and experts together. Embarking on a ten year mission, the £15 million funded project aims to bring together the best innovations of both physical and digital manufacturing technologies.

Based in the heart of Liverpool, the project aims to take build a state-of-the-art rapidly configurable factory that will support local manufacturing businesses and provide job opportunities for expert technology engineers and apprenticeships.

The brand new facility will utilise cutting-edge equipment and software that can support organisations with research and development requirements on their current systems, facility and technology. During the first phase of the project, estimated to take three years, end-users and supply chains are invited to be a part of the project and provide suitable use cases and requirement suggestions with the opportunity to shape the project or become a future solution provider.

Funded by Liverpool City Region Combined Authority

At the Combined Authority, our aim is to ensure that everyone benefits from the decisions we make. We want to create an environment which allows our economy to thrive for the good of everyone who lives and works in Liverpool City Region.

We work together to make investments in areas that have a real impact on our communities, such as transport, employment, culture, digital and housing. By using the devolved powers we have, we can make a real and meaningful difference to the lives of the people living and working in the area.

The Combined Authority is led by Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram and brings together Liverpool City Region’s six local authorities – Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens and Wirral – to tackle the big issues that matter to us all, together.
